Cornwall Beach is located on Gloucester Avenue (it is close to Doctor's Cave Beach, but usually a bit quieter) and has excellent white sand, crystal water and good swimming. Watersports are available and there is a snack bar. Admission fee.

Cornwall beach with lil kids

Is this safe? also- we are only there for a day- on a cruise- what is the safest way to GET to this beach & back w/ 3 lil ones???

In Montego Bay you really must pay to go on the beach otherwise their is a very fair chance you will be robbed. Cornwall Beach is a surprisingly nice place to be considering its location it really does have great white sand and of course toilets and showers, it also has things like go karts that don't intrude as much as you might think, it also has big 'clubhouse' type structure that has a nice feel with bars and TV and an Upper deck that is nice to be on. They have concerts and discos quite regularly.

Compared with Doctors Cave I would say it is more Jamaican, funkier not as Americanised, the only problem is you have to pay quite a lot of money to go on this beach and if you are on holiday or live there this mounts up, as you do Doctors Cave.

So I would recommend going to Negril which is a proper tropical paradise with a fabulous living free beach not a bit of a resort tacked onto the edge of Jamaicas second city, which itself is pretty horrendous.

Daily admission is about US$5 which is very reasonable for a clean, safe beach with so many amenities and facilities. Negril is nearly 2 hours away, so if you're staying in MoBay, this is the beach to go to!
