A stone's throw from the gated all-inclusive resorts in the Runaway Bay area is a public beach known as "Flavours," named after the on site restaurant and bar. This beach has a lovely laid back vibe and is perfectly safe. Neighboring residents, families and those on a highway pit stop come here to relax during the day. Beware of the occasional hustler trying to sell you "ganja" and just politely refuse. Aside from a beautiful, long white sand beach, there are picnic benches and shaded seating areas where you can mingle and watch the world go by. Sample some authentic jerk and other local dishes from the restaurant and shoot the breeze while you soak up an authentic Jamaican beach town scene.
