This beach and surrounding areas are fantastic for couples and families. This area is safe for al, whether one is kayaking beyond the surf or just strolling down the beach. There are several cottages for rent, they are clean and nicely furnished. You can find several local food trucks ( converted VW buses), and their food is great, usually rice... More

Treasure Beach is unlike any of the other tourist areas in Jamaica and is one of the most welcoming places I have ever been. The empty beaches and awesome sunsets are reason enough to visit, but that is really just the top of a very long list. We have visited many times and have only ever had a great time.... More

just don't go there - this is not a safe resort for women of any age. Stay safe, avoid Treasure Beach.

If you are looking for unspoiled serenity with a picturesque view of the Caribbean Sea this little hideaway town is a beautiful place to visit. Away from the hustle and bustle it still has a few nice little restaurants and a small store. Shakespeare cottages provide clean and comfortable lodgings at a reasonable rate. This is where I spent my... More

When I first came to Jamaica some 15 years ago, that was the term that a local in Negril used to describe Treasure Beach. Not having been there I kind of scratched my head... 15 years and probably the same number of trips later, I get it. Whether you stay at Jake's or one of the many Guesthouses all you... More

This is a true slice of nature. Yes there are restaurants along the shore but the beach itself appears mainly untouched. We spent the day at 'Jack Sprats' who provided us with lovely food and gentle music. Great day!

This is made up of a number of beaches, the best was Frenchmans beach. no real facilities on the beach itself but we used the Frenchmans Reef Restaurant as a base. Quite strong currents so beware when swimming. Had drinks at Jakes Place.

You will find a good hotel or cheap accommodation. The beach is clean and well groomed. At the end of the beach there is a bar that you can eat fresh fish or seafood. The village is very friendly. You can safely move around after dark. I met the same friendly and kind people.

There is a great place on the beach to rent kayaks, snorkeling equipment, purchase souvenirs and book boat tours called Buttonwood Tree. It is run by a few friendly, very cool, knowledgeable guys: Racine, Jigga and Smokey.These men were very helpful explaining the reefs; they took me snorkeling in some beautiful areas where sea life is abundant & colorful. They... More

I have passed through the South Coast in the past but finally stayed at Treasure Beach for a few days on my last visit a few weeks ago. It certainly has the laid back country feel of Jamaican vacations back in the 70's. I was comfortable enough to wake up at 6:00 a.m. and take a walk along the back... More
