Growing up in Jamaica, Hellshire Beach was where we would go on a Sunday to have some fun in the sun and eat fried fish and festival. The fish and festival (fried dough) were the best back then and are still the best today! During the season, the lobster is a must...so delicious. Unfortunately, no lobster for us on this... More

Where Kingstonians come to play and relax. Some of the best fish and beautiful white sandy beaches just about 20 minutes outside of Kingston. A nice way to spend the day outside the concrete jungle. Rootsman can be found here too!

A FISH/SEAFOOD LOVER PARIDISE... I have been coming here for years, however nowadays I rarely visit; only at the request of visiting friends. The beach it self in in poor condition. The touts, hagglers, and everybody with a hammer and nail trying to out build everybody into the sea is simply disappointing. Prepare to be harassed for parking that you... More

Hellshire beach is beautiful. Even on a rainy day. The beach was still packed. What I loved about it is the fish fry spots on the beach. I love that you can pick which fish you want them to cook for you. So while you go back and swim or any extracurricular activity. They will come and get you once... More

Beautiful beach, and a relaxing atmosphere with plenty of locals enjoying the sand and sun. I loved the music, and the water was pretty and clear. Keep in mind, this is not like a resort, its more of a local gem, somewhere to go to to relax and take in the culture. We ate @ Prendys, the food and service... More

Hellshire Beach is a 15-20min drive from my families home, so this was the beach of choice only because of it's location. The most appealing thing about this beach is the lack of tourists. Upon arrival the hecklers approached our car with a passive aggressive tone - almost insisting you park where they say and that you follow them to... More

My boyfriend is from Kingston and he brought me to his motherland for my first time. We headed to Hellshire Beach for some food and fun. I was very hesitant to eat fish with the head on it, but once I tried it, I was in love. While the beach isn't anything to special, the environment is. All the locals... More
