having heard of this beach I was enthusiastic to go there. But on trying to get there, the beach was overun with Seaweed at that time and the facilities were non-existent. It looks like it could be a nice beach if it was maintained properly....More

Wider cove than it's neighbour Frenchman's Cove but also beautiful. Can kayak from shore to Money Island in 15 mins or so and to Blue Lagoon in 30/40. Quiet and unspoilt.

During our visit we did not see any visitors at all. It looked in need of a good clean up. Everyone was at Frenchman cove.

Went to the beach itself and stayed only briefly. The beach overlooks Monkey Island and Alligator Head and has a stunning view; there was an awful lot of trash washed ashore, however. Am hoping they work to clean this up, because it is a beautiful...More

San San is really in need of a good beach cleaning strategy. The price for admission has nearly tripled in the last year for travellers, to 800 jmd. I was really surprised to hear of the increase, and thought, well, at least the beach will...More

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.

Our villa overlooked the gorgeous San San bay, but the beach experience was disappointing. There was an entrance fee of $800J per person, (about $16 Canadian dollars), with no in/out privileges. We decided not to spend a further $500 J for the rusty looking beach...More

No one around. Hung out for an hour on our own private beach. Would've been nice to be able to hire a kayak but worth it for the privacy! Pretty clean and safe.
