Bamboo Beach, Ocho Rios

2.9
#2 of 6 in Beaches in Ocho Rios
Find the “best kept secret” of Jamaica and spend a day in the sun at Bamboo Beach, which also goes by the name Bamboo Beach. Cliffs protect the shoreline at either end, and the calm water is appropriate for all swimmers. Rent chairs under the shade or in the sunlight, depending on your preference. Food and drinks are available for purchase throughout the day and are of high quality. As the day goes on and the sun sinks into the horizon, the beach turns into a good-natured party, with dinner served on the sand and DJs playing happy island tunes. You have to pay a small fee to enter the beach area. Plan to visit Bamboo Beach during your Ocho Rios vacation using our convenient Ocho Rios sightseeing planner .

Where to stay in Ocho Rios

Ocho Rios Bay Beach and Malards Bay--both hugging the northern coastline--serve as the most popular areas to stay, with an abundance of hostels, hotels, condominiums, and luxury beach resorts jostling for space along the seafront. Look east along Route A3 for a chance to stay at a quieter, less-touristy resort or private rental.
