Sure wish I would have researched this place a little better. This beach is right at a fish sanctuary. If you have your own snorkel equipment bring it with you. We saw sea turtles swimming a bunch of fish. And if you go to the little fishing village just outside the beach property im pretty sure you could find a... More

We were there when a music cruise was also visiting so it was very busy. We enjoyed the music, and all the children playing in the sand. It was a nice place!

Great little beach with a bar, good food cooked to order. Loud reggae tunes from a huge speaker system get you in the Jamaican groove, friendly beach boys who will snorkel, kayak and paddle board for a fee. Entry fee is $10. Owned by Chris Blackwell who also owns the next door property 'GoldenEye', cameras ready to snap the stars!!!

As part of our trip along the coast we visited James Bond Beach. It was New year's Day and there were few visitors which was surprising. The beach was ideal, the waters warm and blue. The bar was great for a cool beer on a very hot day. There is a large green open space where locals were playing five... More

We took a taxi to this beach as our hotel in Ocho Rios did not have the beach we hoped for. The entrance fee is $5 per person. We were happy to be there. The view is breathtaking and even though the beach area is very small, we enjoyed our time there.

This is a tiny beach - it's not possible to walk here also to the Goldeneye resort should you wish to. It is quite a local oriented beach, rustic with a ramshackle bar called Moonraker which plays music and does some pretty mean cocktails. We were quite disappointed by this beach. Beware also of 'taxi' drivers offering rides from the... More

We visited with small children, older children, big adult kids, and pensioners. We were looking for basic beauty without fuss or ridiculous price tag and thats what we got. It is a far cry from 'Beaches' or 'Sandals' down the road, but it depends what you are after.
