Villa Serenity Guide To The Best Beach For A Day Trip
What could be more relaxing than putting on your swimsuit, grabbing your towel and sunscreen, and heading out for a day at the beach in Jamaica?
Finding the perfect beach that offers you exactly what you want can be a little difficult though: whether you are looking for one that is a little more tranquil, offering a quiet day listening to reggae music while reading or if you’d like something that offers a great view through some snorkel goggles, we’ve got the perfect suggestions for you.
Boston Bay Beach
A cove resting between two foliage covered rocks reaching towards the sky, Boston Bay Beach is a haven for surfers. Rent surfboards and get lessons from one of the local shops, or rent some equipment and go windsurfing. If you are hungry there are all kinds of the best – and hottest – jerk food around. After all, Boston Bay is considered the birthplace of jerk food in Jamaica.
A quiet, idyllic beach, this one is not as popular with tourists as it is residents because it’s a two-hour drive from the airport. There are cottages for rent here and beautiful sights to be seen as fishing boats dot the shoreline.
Doctor’s Cave Beach
A popular beach among both locals and tourists, this popular but intimate beach makes relaxing easy, having banned vendors, footballs and radios. Since the beach is in a sheltered bay, the waters are incredibly calm and the temperature usually stays between 78 and 84 degrees. There is a small admittance fee but the clean change rooms and facilities, as well as the abundance of watersport rental equipment is more than worth it.
Seven Mile Beach
This beach is, you guessed it, a seven mile stretch of beautiful white sand and attracts locals, families and, in designated areas only, some nudists as well, all looking for the perfect spot to soak up the sun. There are vendors here that sell street food like jerk chicken, or you can pack a lunch. If you want to dance the night away on the beach, hang out at Alfred’s Ocean Palace.
