VILLA SERENITY IS JUST STEPS AWAY FROM THE BEST BEACHES IN OCHO RIOS
Best Beaches in Ocho Rios, Jamaica
You’ve finally done it. Your beach vacation in Jamaica has arrived. Staying at your luxurious fully staffed villa on the ocean, you can spend every day taking in the lapping teal green water and the crystal white sands of the shore.
Ocho Rios, Jamaica is called the adventure capital for a reason. But that doesn’t mean you can’t spend your entire day on one of the many luscious beaches surrounding the old fishing village.
Relax on the beach, dip your toes in the water, or go all in. There are kayaking, snorkeling, and other water sports to enjoy. Want to experience the Caribbean without getting wet? Book a glass-bottom boat and check out the sea life down below.
Here are some of the best beaches in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
James Bond Beach
One of the most famous beaches in Jamaica, James Bond beach not only boasts breathtaking ocean sights but views of the Saint Mary Mountains as well.
Ian Flemming, the author of the James Bond books, wrote many a page at this beach. His former residence is overlooking the water.
You might also recognize it as the filming location for Dr. No.
Whether or not you’re a James Bond fan, you’ll love the beauty and peace of the beach only ten minutes away from Villa Serenity.
Turtle Beach is one of the most central beaches in Ocho Rios, close to everything Ocho Rios is known for. It’s also called Ocho Rios Bay Beach.
Located in between Turtle Towers Condos and Jamaica Grande Resort, it has changing rooms and palm trees to protect yourself from the sun.
Water sports of all kinds can be enjoyed here, with motorized and non-motorized rentals available.
After a day of fun in the sun, you’re only steps away from the best restaurants and nightlife in Ocho Rios. You can even get your shopping done at Ocean Village Shopping Center while staying close to the beach.
We recommend visiting Ocho Rios Bay Beach when the cruises are not in port for the best experience and views.
Puerto Seco Beach
Puerto Seco Beach is one of the most popular beaches in all of Jamaica and for good reason. It’s not only a beach with clear turquoise water and white sand. It’s an activity paradise for the whole family.
Rent water sport activities, play in the kid-friendly waterpark, paddleboard, paddleboat, or snorkel.
You can even book a snorkel tour or glass-bottom boat tour. If you’re still craving something to do, try sky diving or an obstacle course at the 5-star facility.
And if you just want to lounge on the beach, Puerto Seco has you covered as well. Rent a Cabana and watch the water as you rest in the shade.
All those activities are probably going to make you hungry and thirsty. Puerto Seco Beach also has a world-class restaurant serving up fresh local meals as well as a bar to make you any drink you desire.
PLUS, you’ll receive access to this exclusive Puerto Seco Beach with your stay at Villa Serenity.
Dunn River Falls Beach
You don’t have to go far to enjoy the beach in Ocho Rios. After exploring Dunn River Falls, Jamaica’s most popular attraction, enjoy the Caribbean Sea where the river meets the ocean.
You can even see part of the waterfall from the sandy shore.
The small public beach is surrounded by greenery and has a small restaurant and cute local shops.
Enjoy a laid-back day in the sun, at Mahogany Beach in Ocho Rios. Rent beach chairs or water sports and enjoy the Jamaican culture.
Mahogany Beach is popular with the locals. You’ll get a taste of how Jamaicans party with loud music, jerk cooking, and sports on the weekends.
Bamboo Beach Club
Formally known as Reggae Beach, Bamboo Beach club provides calming beachfront with exciting entertainment.
Find a lazy hammock to enjoy or grab a seat. Dance shows, live music, and numerous DJs will keep you entertained. Order a freshly made cocktail from the bar or buy one of the all-inclusive packages for drinks and food.
You’ll be partying the day away at the beach in complete comfort.
Sugar Pot Beach
Craving something slower-paced? Sugar Pot Beach is minutes away from Bamboo Beach Club. It has all the same blissful ocean views: Caribbean sea, white sands, and tropical greenery, without the often loud entertainment.
The spot is the historic site of the Ocho Rios battle where you can still see some artifacts as you learn about local Jamaican history.
And when you get hungry the Sugar Pot Beach Restaurant has plenty of delicious food choices.
Before Ocho Rios became the hub of activity it is today, it was a fishing village. A visit to fisherman’s beach will remind you of Ocho Rios’ origins.
Brightly painted fishing boats line the small public beach. Watch out for the fisherman and make sure to check out some of the local spots for fresh fish, food, and rum. You can also enjoy luxurious dining at the restaurants lining the shore.
Villa Serenity Private Beach
Sometimes you just want to enjoy the water without leaving your villa. Villa Serenity private beach lets you enjoy the Caribbean Sea without having to drive.
Sip your morning coffee on the coast. Take an afternoon swim. Get away from the crowds of public beaches. Enjoy a private beach exclusive to villa guests. Now that sounds like a good beach vacation.
