we were able to enjoy the little crescent, white sand, teal beach by the kindness of a security man as the whole of James Bond Beach rec area is closed. It is certainly falling into disrepair, but the bones are absolutely phenomenal and talk of resurrection is everywhere. If a wise investor/developer reopens this beautiful treasure, do NOT miss going

If you are a Bond fan, this is worth a stop off. Both the fishing vessel and yacht used are there and you can take a dip in some lovely clean water.

The nearby town of Oracabessa is a busting little place which is worth a stroll around and a good Red Stripe stop off.

Don’t expect a licence to thrill but if you are in the area, go take a look

We were staying nearby and walked over to check it out. Not much to see really. Very small beach. The bar was ok and the red stripe was cold.

We were staying at a villa nearby and walked over one morning for a visit. The place has 2 small beaches, one is nice clean with a beach bar nearby and the other is a smaller beach that could use a cleaning. It was an ok beach to visit but not quite what we expected.

Nice beach and fun for the 007 enthusiast to visit. Sadly a lot of plastic and other garbage washes up and there is no clean up being done. The waterfalls on the eastern end of the beach are very nice and quite cold being fed from the mountain run-off.

Its lowkey fun to go with friends and families but be careful of the deep sections. they have a bathing area so thats a plus.

You must go if you like the more Jamican feel. Clean beach and we had fun watching the sand crabs. Bar on premises! Well of course!

Maybe because it was off season, but there was pretty much no one at this beach. It's down a bit of a rough dirt road and you don't know you're there until you're there. A nominal fee for entry gets you onto the property and access to the two beaches.

Decent restrooms and outdoor showers, no real changing facilities to speak of. There's a port side beach-with amazing blue water, and a sea side beach. No real activities/amenities at the port side other than a few picnic tables. The sea side has more chairs and the paddle board/kayak rental place. The restaurant is closer to the sea side and I think you could do some decent snorkeling there as the reef is just out a bit. All activities are decently priced.

Restaurant was delicious. Typical Jamaican fare, cooked to order so expect to wait 20-30 minutes for your order. It was worth the wait.

There is also a dive shop. Nice place to go with children.
