The Pearly Beach Review!


The Pearly Peach is located in Ocho Rios St. Ann, right next to the Laughing Waters. I entered the ‘Pearly Gates’ for the first time exactly two weeks ago. I didn’t know what to expect but I really enjoyed the experience.

And if you feel the need, you may walk down to the left end of the beach, just to laugh at the neighboring waters.

The beach is just about 110 meters long by my subjective estimate.

At the shore there is a roughly 10-15 degree incline. The Pearly Beach Ocho Rios - Life of a Jamaican (11)

There is a safety barrier placed in the water where it is just a little less than 5 feet deep.

There are excellent bathroom facilities and adequate space for picnic or storage of baggages for large groups.

I had a fun day playing a hilarious game of “Starvey”, volley ball etc. It was quite entertaining to see adults playing “Dandy Shandy” a game I ruled in my childhood.

Take a quick look at the beach here:

It’s a good beach, but as is expected, you have to bring the vibe. My only critiques are:

1. One small section had some leaves and other plant debris. Fallen leaves are unavoidable but frequent cleaning can solve this problem.

2. I’m not a fan of the incline at the shore.

With that said I give the Pearly Beach a very strong 7/10.
