Waking up on the 18th was easy as we had an early night previously.  The early morning monsoon that struck the coast, left air humand and sticky.  It was a good day for the beach.  The lady recommended a good beach that was in walking distance that would save us cash.  The Carib (what she recommended) was crap quite frankly!  A piddly little thing swamped by bus loads of tourists from the huge cruise liners, where they sell expensive food and drinks.  We left even quicker than we arrived in an attempt to leave behind the crowds.  We walked along the road and asked the locals where a good beach was.  We soon found a little private beach hidden between resorts.  The sand not quite as fine as Cuba's, but beautiful none the less.  The crystal clear water extended far out to the reef, which shielded any waves coming in, leaving calm relaxed water.  A few hours passed, and the sun regulary made its appeared in between the clouds which dotted the sky burning us, as usual!

We took a long stroll back, but I had to put my shirt back on, as the sun was infront of me burning me even more!  I actually could of made some cash though, as I got whistled at and the girl told me she'd pay me to keep it off! haha - thats a first!  (I put it on anyhow).  As we were feeling very sunburnt, we headed back to our hotel and chilled on the balcony overlooking the crystal clear waters, chatting to the local cook.  Well Jamaicas traditional meal here is Chicken (just like everywhere else), but they have "Jerk Chicken" here, which is a spice.  We got it for 133 Jamaican Dollars (just under $2AUD), and ate it on our balcony.  The weather here is so warm and humid all day long and all night, so the only reason to put a shirt on is to keep the damn mosquitos away when night starts falling.  Right as the sun sets they hit you like clock work, the bastards!  As usual we fell asleep with the airconditioner on full blast!
