Winnifred is one of the popular beaches in Portland along with Boston beach. It is family oriented and very beautiful. I have been going to this beach from I was very young and would visit my uncle in Portland.

One of the last free beaches in Port Antonio. The sand is just right. The food is reasonable. Only complaint would be that there is no fresh water to rinse off after a day at the sea. Love this beach.

Lovely natural beach, not at all touristy. A contribution is appreciated and well deserved. The people keep the place nicely. Watch out for sea eggs on the rocks.

I wouldn t count on the facilities. And you dont have to pay, although people will ask for or tell you to. But nevertheless the beach is amazing!
