Jamaica's best kept secret: this beach offers a striking landscape and uncrowded sands, but strong undercurrents can make swimming tricky.

Quiet Paradise

Beautiful quiet location. Lovely beach with a couple of bars and a few restaurants. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to get away from it all.

But not locally made. The gal behind this great gallery and boutique has a good eye for hand made Jamaican articles. The textiles are handstitched by her and they are wonderful. But many of the items are brought in from Kingston, and not made by local crafters. The prices are steep and perhaps reflect their long journey to remote Treasure... More

Stayed at a quaint B&B in Calabash close to Billy's Bay. There were 5 great beaches on the different bays within walking distance. Fort Charles Bay is a bit further west, about 15 minutes by car, and has miles of beach to explore. Everyone in the area were warm and friendly. Lots of farming in the area so it's not... More

I had read so much about Treasure beach that I was expecting much nicer... we were not that impressed... not only the guesthouses are behind walls (and not open like in Negril), but since they are less tourists on the beach, guess how more often one gets hustled? Some drunk people on the beach too made that place not as... More

The area surrounding treasure beach is so beautiful! The farms and grazing pastures were breathtaking. The travelers to TB were from all over. Many from Italy, Finland, Denmark, tons of people from Canada, a few Americans. It is very low key, clean and homey. The Blue Smurf rest. has incredible breakfasts. We lived most days on the patio of the... More

The snorkeling revealed some interesting ocean life but the corals have seen better days. The water was warm but I was warned to be careful of the riptides in this area. I personally did not experience this however. It's a quiet little fishing village and the fisherman were at the end of the beach hauling in lobsters, which they were... More

I love this part of Jamaica. Once you have been there for a couple of days, the locals are greeting you by name and treating you as if you are one of the neighbours. Quiet, none of the tourist traps such as you see in Negril. Very peaceful. You can walk on one of the many beaches and be the... More

Very very quiet beach and waves to play in most days. Extremely warm waters, clear on calmer days. One of the best beaches I have ever been to. The community is nice and quiet too. Heaven for hippies :)

Captain Joseph (and the real force, his wife Paula) took me and my husband out with 4 other couples for the day. He found us while at our stay at Jake's Hotel (also great!) and organized the details and payment thru the hotel. Excellent because lack of ATM machines in the area. Captain Joseph is a real fish boat captain-... More

A beautiful part of the world which is unmissable if visiting Jamaica. From Jakes to the Pelican Bar or a Crocodile Safari on the Black River there is lots to do and see with that unmistakable laid back Caribbean vibe.
