I loved the waves at this beach! Super safe and fun. The park is nice and the people are very kind. You won't be disappointed. Head over to c-liff 's little beach bar just up the way from there after for a Red Stripe!

Ok, so, if you're driving from Port Antonio, it's a little tough to find because the Jerk Centre kinda just looks like some slummy shacks. Park at the beach and walk back towards Port Antonio....The jerk huts will be on the right. We made the mistake of getting hustled into trying the first place. Check them all out!!!! Our place...

WOW! Simply breathtaking - this beach is awesome albeit a small sandy area to lounge/stand but the beauty of this cove makes it a must visit. The clean white sand and crystal clear water are truly magical. Over time you see the water carved a crest into the overlooking cliffs which makes the cove very intimate. Grab some jerk chicken...

I heard so many things about the jerk chicken and festival at Boston Bay, but when we got there, it was very untidy. Flies everywhere, and the conditions left much to be desired. We were truly disappointed, but the jerk chicken and festival werent too bad.

Ate there 3 days in a row to be able to sample different cooks. Glasses and Mickeys are great, can't go wrong with either, both slow cook over Pimento and start real early. Chicken is outstanding. 2 downers, 3 different stands pork was way over done and dry. Like they were giving me yesterday's pork that didn't sell, very disappointing.... More

Boston Beach looks really amazing. The beach itself, cliffs on the right side, sea color... wow. Didn't quite get it how surfers surf there cuz the waves weren't that big but maybe i was there in wrong moment :) usually its full of tourists but definitely worth of visiting!

Gentle, secluded, Surfing available. Clean. Shallow a ways out. Women can get ye old come-on typical in Jamaica. No admission. Public beach which makes it more interesting.

Boston Beach is pretty unique. The water is perfectly warm and there are hardly any people there. It's a beach inhabited by occasional tourists and Jamaican surfers -- the ultimate beach for those who want to chill, picnic, and take a swim at sunset.
