Beach Nature / Park
Enjoy some relaxation on Winnifred Beach, a shady white sand beach in the Fairy Hill community. Swim in its calm blue water, rest in the thick shade of trees and vines, or take a walk along the bay shore. The transparent water and nearby coral reef are great for snorkeling and spotting an array of different fish species. Hang out at one of the beach bars and restaurants, where you can try Jamaican cuisine and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere.

  • The beach is frequented by locals and strongly suggest to get there take the last walk (bumpy). When we get there is a big sign is a cardboard box that says: contribution for the beach. The caretaker invites us to leave some money but when we take them gets angry and demands a predetermined amount of Jamaican dollars. If it is a contribution and not a ticket you can't oblige to give a sum (trust me I still had a fair amount). God forbid you don't pay to get in but then you ask for a contribution, you set a price to ensure the management of the beach. Everyone then decides whether to go or not. However beach.

  • Love the beach but at a restaurant they gave me a little bit of rice and literally bones
  • The beach is lovely, there is one drawback and that is the road leading to the beach, but don't be deterred continue on the rugged path.
  • Beautiful, even on a cold windy day. Great food, great people, great views. I can't wait to return.
  • A place of peace and quiet and for relaxing and having parties
  • Beach was beautiful, clean and kempt. The lack of restrooms and changing rooms prevented the five stars. Also the roads are very bad.
