Best beach in Jamaica!

Every time I'm in Port Antonio, Jamaica I somehow gravitate to this beach! It is so serene and peaceful. It also offers a fresh water spring the runs directly into the ocean.

Was jere for the day with my wife and 16 y/o son. The beach itself is idyllic; white sand, sheltered, gently sloping and protected from the worst of the swell. The flaws JMD1000 each entry. Loungers JMD 200 each with a limited supply. It was busy the day we were hete so service was slowish (even by Jamaican norms). Ideal... More

Clear beach, no waves. Can enjoy with family. Its safe to be there since its a private location. Have life guards. Place to spend a day or more than half.

We took a day trip here and a boat ride over to Navy Island just before it closed. This is a beautiful area and a must see to experience Jamaica. We ate lunch at the Blue Lagoon and took a dip in the water!

Looking for a small, cozy and intimate beach. This is the place. It's private and hidden behind some lush gardens. Must pay an entrance fee. Restaurant on site for lunch. Bring your fun side and enjoy the beautiful, warm and calm waters.

I stayed in Port Antonio at the Moon San Villa and decided to visit the Frenchman's Cove. One should take a taxi to get there. The entrance fee is $10 US. You also should pay for a beach chair. The beach is gorgeous, there are all amenities there, a small restaurant as well. There are wild mango threes around the... More

I loved the beach, but I made the mistake of spending the night at one of their "villas". The place was a DUMP! filthy and nasty! From Broken Doors, to dirty floors, mold in the fridge, rusty sink, and droppings/excrement everywhere...AVOID!
