Ochi For a Day - need recommendation

Hi All,

My friend is stopping in Ochi through a cruise. He does not want to go to Dunns River Falls, he wants to eat some Jamaican food and maybe visit a local beach and then head back to the ship.

(1) Are there local, independent taxi drivers that he could hire for a few hours and negotiate his own rate?

(2) I am going to recommend Scotchies to him for lunch. Can anyone recommend a beach he can visit that wont charge him too much -- if not free?

Thanks!

M.

Yes. You will find some at the end of the cruise ship dock.

"Can anyone recommend a beach he can visit that wont charge him too much"

The nearest beach to the cruise ship dock is about 300 yards ahead and on the left of the access road to the pier.

He wouldn't even need a taxi - he can walk right off the cruise ship, visit the beach there, and wander into town for food - all within walking distance of the dock.
