It is picture perfect. Driving east from Port Antonio, you will encounter this small cove that has justly won accolades from visitors the world over to Jamaica. We enjoyed our times at Frenchman's, as one of Jamaica's many rivers emptied in the Caribbean, just to the left of our blanket. Doing so creates a temperature inversion as the cold waters... More

I recently visited Frenchman's Cove, I must say its a really beautiful property, if you really want to get away from the city, crowded beaches then Frenchman'S Cove is an ideal spot. I do believe there is so much more that can be done with this beautiful piece of paradise. Unfortunately, while I enjoyed the beach and river,I can't say... More

Absolutely GORGEOUS....a hidden gem. A great place to go that doesn't draw crowds and has a great hut on the beach to grab a Red Stripe;)

Very pretty, clean and serene, the river is as beautiful and this is the river mouth so you get the cold river water and the hot Caribbean sea water on your body at the same time, I don't know if I can really write how wonderful such a feeling is a day of this and you don't need a Spa... More

Arrived here after spending a relaxing morning at the blue lagoon expecting to have a nice lunch and spend the rest of the day by the beach. This did not happen! First of all you have to pay to get in there and its per person, even though we got a discount as volunteers to $8 each it was way... More

Went in 2010 for my 60th & 40th wedding anniversary. It's the most romantic place we have ever been. It's paradise. When I dream of heaven, then I dream of Frenchman's cove. Hope I go again soon.

You pay 1000JMD but worth it, there is a small river that goes into the sea. A swing over the river. Food ist expensive but you have wifi there.

Always good. Where the river meets the sea, It can run cold and warm and the current / waves can be rough at times. A tranquil place to be but not on Banks holidays or weekends. I choose week days, quite and relaxing. Just love the place with anytime off I visit here. my #1 beach in Jamaica for 20... More
