  • The best day trip from Negril if you like to hang out on a small island with 2 beaches, good snorkeling and eating the freshest lobsters ever. Bring cash because the lobsters are $20-30. Lunch is usually available from 11-4 (low season 12-3) and there’s also cold drinks for sale. Some tours include lunch so just ask. There’s a short trail that leads to a more secluded beach with good snorkeling. Use closed toe water shoes because the rocks here are sharp. If you have a kayak from nearby resorts it’s possible to get here w/o a tour guide and free.
  • I love it so must and it is good nice
  • Nice adult spot
  • Uninhabited ideal for casual private sunbathing if you can get there
  • Fun trip
