James Bond Beach, Ocho Rios

2.8
#3 of 6 in Beaches in Ocho Rios
Pretend you’re in the movies on the white sands of James Bond Beach, a picturesque spot with an eclectic cultural history. Scenes from the James Bond movie “Dr No” were filmed here and the character’s creator, Ian Fleming, lived nearby at his “Golden Eye Villa” while writing the novels. Hop on a boat tour to go and see the villa along with breathtaking views of the surrounding bay. Owned by music mogul and Island Records founder Chris Blackwell, the beach also hosts a lively mix of annual music events, most of which take place at the two-storey “Moonraker” beach bar, which also offers a delicious menu of fresh fish and seafood to sample. The beach itself boats a dramatic backdrop of the St Mary mountains, surrounded on three sides by glimmering turquoise waters, perfect for swimming and snorkeling. You can plan Ocho Rios trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

That's rather should be a beach for locals, I can not understand. When I was there, also some other tourists were there except me. Sure, you'll pay more entry as often in Jamaica as a foreigner, but I think it's ok. I found only the prices in the restaurant covered, how then somewhere else ate.
