Very nice beach,long shoreline, shady areas, the water is clear and shallow for about woo metres out. The bar is not well stocked so carrying food is necessary or visit the shops nearby in Draper's. JA$700 entry per person and $500 per chair.

Beach is ok. Went to the side that you can sneak in to so it's free. The sand is filled with trash. The water is great though.
