As a beach it doesn't get much better - a small inlet with a fresh water stream running into the sea you can swim in salted or unsalted water- food is great,it's very quiet and it is sublime.

It's the only place I went in Portland where I felt like a pampered tourist, so it feels a bit out of place there in how manicured it is. But it's nice for a change of pace. The waves are pretty calm, and the beach is kind of tiny, but it has beautiful sand, and it's very fun to swim... More

This is the best beach! Just a short route taxi ride from Port Antonio (10 minutes). There is a fee (~J$5 per person) to use this beach, but it was well worth it. It's small, but we went on a Friday and there only about a dozen other people and everyone was spread out, so there was lots of privacy.... More

Frenchman's Cove once upon a time was said to be one of the top seven beaches in the world. The world has become larger... however in my book it will always be one of the best I have ever visited.
