“Small beach, but still a great place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

The beach itself is pretty small at Boston but this is still a great place to hang out for a couple hours. You can rent a surf board or a boogie board and for a few dollars more one of the locals will provide surf lessons. We had a nine year old with us and we sprung for the surf lessons for him and he loved it. The guide really was great and spent a lot of time in the water with him. Also, the Boston Jerk Center is right on top of the hill. So stop on your way and enjoy some jerk on the beach and then hit the water.

“Very small beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Boston Beach seems to be mostly locals but is worth a stop for a few pictures. This is not a place to come lay on the beach, as the beach is tiny, but you can rent a surfboard for $15 & a boogie board for $5 if a beginner would like to try some smaller waves.
Fairly safe area but still expect to be approached constantly to buy a number of services and products.
The jerk pork at one of the roadside huts was great, as well as the festival.

“jerk pork was as good as usual”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Hustling by vendors can be very annoying you have to say a forceful no if you are not interested in what they are selling.

“Best Jerk Chicken”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Fresh cooked jerk chicken form one of the roadside jerk pits was thoroughly enjoyed on the beach at Boston, with an ice cold red Stipe - what better way to spend an afternoon....
