A famous Jamaican landmark, this breathtaking picture-perfect white sand beach is a tropical slice of heaven. Lounge chairs are lined along the seashore, some grouped amongst shady random clusters of hundred year old almond and palm trees, while others are arranged closer to the waters edge. Enjoy soft reggae music and great Jamaican hospitality. A large bamboo bar offers exotic cocktails and beverages, and the seaside restaurant serves tasty local cuisine.

Hubby and I took a beach day here from our r cruise. The Jamaican Jerk Chicken at Beach Restaurant was highlight of day! We were dropped off, then herded to beach area with crammed chairs, one upon the next- horrible!

We booked this excursion from our Harmony of the Seas trip through Norwegian Cruise lines. From the port to the beach was 1 hr and 35 minutes bus ride. So make sure you go to the washroom prior as the bus doesn't stop along the way. We had 2 guides and they were great they let us know that the... More

Excellent afternoon spent lounging surfside. Greeted upon arrival with champagne cocktails and choice of several types of tropical cocktails. Followed by a locally prepared assortment of salads, ceviche and main course of grilled lobster and jerk chicken. Plenty of food and drink. Bar area has wifi available. Clean restrooms, shower and changing area. Very enjoyable experience.

I really enjoyed Bamboo Beach... I really wanted to enjoy a good lay on the beach and this was awesome. There lots of local goods to buy on the beach and the bar was cool. The music on the beach was great too! Awesome relaxation in the water. Tamara and "Stewy" were awesome guides.

A sliver of a mediocre beach where we were directed to sit up close and personal to high tide. We almost lost our stored shoes and personal items to the tide. From the time we arrived, we were inundated with mixed drinks. Facilities are very poor. Food and entertainment were fair. My grandson loves the beach, and had a good... More

Entertaining workers, two bars with food. Plenty of seating. Sand was interestingly gritty, but soft and beach kept clean.
