James Bond Beach was quite and very relaxing. There is a Dj and a few shops but no one bothers you. People are able to swim, paddle board, kayak, or just sun on the beach. The entrance fee was $3.50 US for locals and we...More

Just a 5-10 minute beautiful walk out the back side. Great food and drinks at a gorgeous, uncrowded beach that you can charge to your room. Great music too! Don't miss it.

We stopped here as we're James Bond fans. It was a beautiful beach. Water is so calm. Atmosphere was ultra chill, we were the only ones there. Definitely worth a stop.

First, the road driving into this beach has lots of pot holes so it is slow-going. I was surprised that the beach here is really small (there are two beach access areas with one closer to the restaurant & bar). We visited on the Monday...More

Try calling week days after 10 am. Weekend and evenings especially when close to closing may be low staffed. It was I think $350 jdm per adult to get in.

Taxis in Jamaica are NOT like English taxis... you would be best with private taxi then you have it to yourself...JBB is quite a drive from centre of ochi so negotiate a return price..
