Clean beach with clear beautiful water. Had a small fairly priced entry fee. Overall was a worth it experience and I'd revisit.

Certainly I miss the azure waters of Boston Bay. The area is naturally carved down slope and consists of a wide bay-mouth with spectacular view of the enclosing limestone headlands. The shore is fairly extensive lengthwise though is short in width. The waves aren't particularly...More

I wasn't aware of a contact number for the beach itself or for the Jerk Centres there! You just pay to go onto the beach and order food when you're there.
