Our Jamaica Beaches are rated amongst the Caribbean's and the World's best beaches, and at the top of the list is Negril's 7 mile beach, but there are many other excellent beaches in Jamaica. Almost all our Resorts have their own top quality beach, with access usually restricted to guests, and with over 50 public beaches around the island you are spoilt for choice.
In addition there are numerous small coves ... hidden gems ... scattered right around the island, like this one in Treasure Beach. Some of these are private, some you can only get to by sea, and others are public if you know where to find them.
A lot of our beaches in Jamaica are protected by reefs, and the sea is like a pond most of the time. Others are open to the ocean with no reef to protect them, and there are constant breakers and strong tides. Always ask for and listen to advice from the locals when swimming on any beach.
A few of our beaches on the South Coast, like Alligator Pond, have black sand due to traces of iron in the sand, but most of our Jamaica beaches have white sand. The only drawback of the sand being black is that it gets very hot in the sun, and you will need to wear sandals on the beach.
Some Jamaica Beaches are very popular and crowded, others are more secluded, and you will have them more or less to yourself. You will find food stalls on most public beaches, but other facilities vary greatly.
Our best known beaches are listed below, with links to some that you should enjoy visiting.
