One thing we won’t shy away from is the beauty of our beaches. From white and black sandy shores, to a secluded island a mere boat ride from the city, Jamaica has a beach to serve each of your preferences.
Yallahs Bay Shores
You can bet that we’re definitely biased on this one. Rocking on our garden swings by the beach at Carleva Bay under the almond trees, watching the setting sun fade into a blanket of stars is one of our favorite ways to pass an evening. Another version: Inviting our friends and family over for fish and bammy on a Sunday afternoon get together, and watching this beauty below blossom through the sky. Call us to reach out and grab your own slice of paradise!
East End Beach
A piece of Jamaican history, the Morant Point Lighthouse was erected in 1841, making it the oldest lighthouse on the island and the first cast iron lighthouse built in the Western Hemisphere. This scenic daytrip from Carleva Bay will take you through fields of sugarcane, dotted with roaming cows and goats while pelicans glide above.
Frenchman’s Cove Beach
A gem of Jamaica’s northeast coast. A bay of sorts where an icy river meets the Caribbean sea, Frenchman’s Cove’s ragged coastline is offset by beautiful palms, lush vegetation and temperate waters. We love jumping off the tree into the ice cold river and hanging off the swing. The beach has bar and food services, and lounge chairs for use and if asked, they will even set up a table on the sand and bring your lunch or dinner right to you.
Hailing a small boat from Port Royal and racing through the salty sea air (through sometimes choppy waters) to your personal island retreat is half the Lime Cay experience. The other half of course, is lazing around on this tiny peaceful coral island oasis. There’s not a single vendor or commercial establishment on the island, and that’s precisely why we recommend this beach so highly. If you go on a weekday you’re likely to have the entire place to yourself. Pack food and drinks, but please, leave no trace of yourself here except the memories! Only a 15-minute boat ride away, Lime Cay is accessible, beautiful and personal. Bring a picnic, a book and a few friends for beachy getaway from the city.
Beautiful white sand beaches abound against a backdrop of dense forested hillsides. We love admiring the plush treetops and beautifully capped mountaintops in the distance! This a local favourite spot for boating (or dinner, apparently, if you’re a goat).
St. Thomas Beaches
Unspoiled, off the beaten track. Paradise! Wow . . . look at that golden hour light. Jamaica, our love is yours.
