“Pretty but just a beach”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

If you are traveling just to see that beach it really is just a beach. Don't expect miracles just because James Bond filmed a movie on it....nice clean but nothing out of this world !

“Poor Treatment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

There is a steep price to pay to get on the beach $10 pp and then you are not allowed to bring food because they cook food there. Customer service is not something that they know

“Great little snorkel area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

The place isn't in great shape, but we spent a couple hours snorkeling and it was beautiful around the reef. There were a lot of tropical fish, coral, sea urchins, and other various marine life. It was quite beautiful and worth a whole $5.00 to get out and snorkel away from all the more expensive tourist areas.

“ITS TRUE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

James Bond aka 007 actually was filmed live, right on location on this very beach, and if you look up into the hills you will see a large home with a teal to blue coloured roof, belonging to none other than Mick Jagger.

“A little disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2013

We took a taxi here and found it a little disappointing.
You will have to pay a five dollar per person entrance fee to get in and you may not want to stay long.
There are some dilapidated wooden sun loungers on the beach which should have been scrapped years ago.
The scenery is quite nice but I could not associate the James bond movie with this spot.
There is a bar where you can get a drink and a bite to eat.
I think this location is more a locals venue.
Whilst we were there we took a glass bottom boat round to Ian Flemings former home and Goldeneye around the corner.
