About the neighbourhood
Ocean Blues is situated at the south end of Saint James Parish sculptured into the rock face . It's built on several levels and you can walk the beach ,Batts and paradise beach , far as the port without going on the road way. You may need to swim or wade the first 30/50 meters depending on the tide. There is a convenience store a short walk south, and the best rated restaurant CIN CIN a short walk north. The buses are frequent along the south coast road and stop just yards from Ocean Blues. Cost 2$ bds each trip .You can hale water taxis /skis from the ocean terrace. Or just lounge around and enjoy a rum punch, which our house keeper will ply you with on arrival.
