It's a public pay beach, some days a little crowded with cruise ship people but a good place for mingling with all.

I enjoyed my stay at Sandcastles complex with exclusive access to the Ocho Rios beach. Sunloungers $600 Jamaican or $6 US. Lots of coconut trees to shade and carefully placed so sunbathers are not injured by falling coconuts! There are some beach vendors who offer glass bottomed boat rides, hair braiding, they accept a polite no and move on. Security... More

This beach is very quite and the water is nice and calm. the view from the beach is excellent. Specially when the big cruises dock in the bay. The sand is nice and clean and there are some tourist boats that offer many services.

If you want beach loungers, they are available for $5 and there are beach boys who will fetch you drinks and food. The beach can get busy when cruise ships are in port but... More
