It's small but one of the only coves I've seen that has waves. Like much of Jamaica I'd recommend wearing water shoes, but it's super fun. Lots of guys around who will help you learn to surf (though their instruction isn't top notch). $20 per hour about but don't hesitate to negotiate. There's a jerk center right nearby with good...

Jerk shacks offer their version of chicken and pork. Can be a little overwhelming for a new visited. Lots of harassing craftsmen and the flies can be bad.

If you are a surfer this is the place to go! Waves looked like fun and well formed. Also just a beautiful beach to hang out and eat jerk chicken/pork/and sausage. Tis is where the whole "jerk" thing began! Nice to just come for a swim and a bite to eat.

We really enjoyed hanging out here. Must try the Jerk Chicken as this is the area it originated from. A few locals will approach you trying to sell artwork, music, surfboards and grass. A simple fist bump and 'no thanks' and they won't bother you again though. We sat watching the surfers in the warm water in this white sandy... More

We found this place while exploring from the San San area. We were only around for the weekend, but I could see myself hanging at this beach for days.

Boston Beach is absolutely beautiful. The warm crystal clear blue waters that are for the most part, calm enough to swim in, the cliffs, the trees and vegetation serve as the backdrop to this piece of Jamaican paradise. I was staying at the huts and frequented the beach during the early morning hours and had the beach all to myself.... More

Boston Bay is not for everyone but it was for my son and myself. It has taken me a while to write this because I am feeling selfish in my old age and want the place to myself. I have traveled the world; on $10.00 US a day when I started. First trip to Jamaica was 30 years ago. First... More

A unique Jamaican experience. Off the beaten track for most American tourists. Check out nearby Long Bay, a beautiful stretch of beach.
