We stayed nearby at Goblin Hill planning to spend a lot of time at the beach or take early morning walks there. However it is only accessible between 9-4 with a 1000 JD entrance fee per person. I can see it from my villa and it is usually deserted. Seems like they could do better being free and charging for... More

No industrial mess, just a clean beach with an incredible view of Alligator Head Rock! This beach is the perfect quite spot for those willing to leave the touristy beaches of Jamaica!

The beach itself could do with some TLC but the water is crystal clear and beautifully warm. The views out to sea are exquisite and the beach is wonderfully uncrowded. There is a small restaurant, where we ate some excellent fish. We spent hours and hours there and couldn't tear ourselves away.

A very eash to reach local beach. I hope that the locals will still continue to have access to this beach. It is good that food and refreshment can be purchased to eat. On occasions when I have visited the beach the quality of the water is not very pleasant. I have not visited it on this recent trip.

Very good beach close to many of the vacation villas. Fun for family and food is available. It just needs some upgrading of the shoreside.

The beach are very close to frenchman cove and blue lagoon, but isn't the best. The water is clear but the shore was a bit dirty. The positive point is a few people, and few annoyng local people. There is a little bar that a man take care and offer boat trip. Of the beach is possible to see the... More

We love this beach. Not as beautiful as it once was, but still good. The facilities are tired and worn out. They charge $7/person for access and $5/chair. Small parking lot. Get there early. Small concession stand. Beers, waters, some basic beach food.

Beach is dirty. Service is insanely poor. And to make it worse, they charge to enter... Ridiculous. I stayed for about 3 minutes and left. You might aswell go down to Winifred.
