Jamaica's best kept secret: this beach offers a striking landscape and uncrowded sands, but strong undercurrents can make swimming tricky.

On the South side of this little island; Treasure Beach is a small village with many small and fantastic restaurants and rental cottages (in a variety of price ranges). Treasure Beach has a very friendly vibe and gorgeous... More

Treasure Beach is just that, a treasure. We travelled all around Jamaica, visited every parish, and Treasure Beach was the highlight. This is a laid back, low key place, and we loved it. No big all inclusive, no chain restaurants. Everything is locally owned and operated, We had great meals, stayed in a fun accommodation, and the beaches are the... More

I have been coming to Jamaica since the early 1980's to Negril when it was a shack on the beach. Well that is no more! I have been all over Jamaica and have been searching for that next real Jamaican spirit that has been lost in so many of the over developed tourist traps. I had hear about Jake's many... More

Treasure Beach, in St. Elizabeth Parish, is the opposite of the mega-resort scene to be found in other parts of Jamaica. Many Jamaicans vacation here. You will find a variety of accomodations, from inexpensive guest houses to the bohemian/sophisticated Jakes - and villas in between. The people are friendly, the beaches are largely deserted, and the birdlife is extraordinary to... More

Once located, one of the most peaceful and quieter beaches. Locals were very helpful and friendly. Historical area of interest.

After the second day there a lot of people knew us by name. They treated us like family. If we had any questions about the area or things to do they answered without trying to sugar coat it or sell you something. Loved the area!

We traveled the road next to the ocean toward Black River and found a deserted strip of beach just past Button Bay before Pelican Bar. We walked for a mile our two with our toes in the soft sand. There were no houses in sight. I picked up seashells all along the way to add to my collection. It was... More
