Visit this beach to see how Kingstonians enjoy the weekend. The sand and sea is beautiful here but you'll be sharing it with hundreds of people. Nice authentic experience. Grab a cold red stripe or some steamed fish and watch the antics!

We were taken here by a new driver, not our regular good driver, and he took us to this bogus lunch stand on the beach where we were overwhelmed by people holding up lobsters and fresh fish. Shame on us for not discussing pricing up front, there was no menu or board with costs either. Shortly after we ordered and... More

Our group of 7 decided to dine at Hellshire instead of Gloria's in Port Royal. On arrival, we were coaxed to dine at Celine's British Fish and Seafood by 2 men who said it was their family's restaurant. We were even offered a discount to dine there.

The first time we ate at Aunt Merl's and the second time next door at Aunt May's. Hands down we prefer Aunt May's. Definitely... More

You have to go to Hellshire beach if you visit Jamaica, great beach, good atmosphere and friendly people... the food prices are so cheap we had oysters, Lobster and Blue fish with beer and it does not break the bank about £20. So if you get a chance make a visit

I visit Hellshire Beach 3-4 times a year. It's a nice relaxing place. The people are awesome and you can get the best fish, lobster and festival round!

There are vendors are the drive up if you need a towel or T-shirt, or something to eat. The local people are... More
