How many tourists you can stand? Not very clean. Eat your fresh lobster if you like. There were some bugs on the beach so not a good location to bath in the sun.

Good trip in combination with a lobster bbq and snorkeling. The island itself is very dirty. I would not go there again.

This was our second trip back to Booby Cay Island. We had such a great experience the first time tha we couldn't wait to go back. I had the grilled lobster again and my husband had grilled fish. Both meals were great!! Best food we had while in Negril!

What an amazing break from the every day life at the all in clusive resort. The crew on the island were amazing!!! I love my lobster steamed more but the open flame grill was great for everyone else and the rice and beans were to die for amazing. They know what they are doing. Love the personalities of the people... More

But that's what are oceans are becoming:( A very nice snorkeling spot on the reef side. You can get a kayak rental at Board... More

Booby cay is between 7 mile beach and Bloody bay just off the point of Point village. Nice spot to go and have lobster that thy cook while you wait. You can walk around on the island also. It is not very big however it is very picturesque. Take a kayak from your resort and paddle out.

This was a nice3 resort, great employees all very friendly an so pleasant and helpful. The beach was amazing clean, nice sand and you could walk 100 ft out and no rocks or sticks super clean, nice and warm very enjoyable. Nice if you have children, many things to keep them busy, and entertained. Great drinks, and entertainment.

We snorkeled around this island and saw a few neat fish and lobsters. The island is pretty and natural looking but the waters around it can become busy with boats and people snorkeling.

It's fun, but not a whole bunch to look at. Kids enjoyed walking around the island, and the views were amazing!
