pretty beach

Great for days when winds are high since its protected. Go early since it gets very crowed in evenings due to its on the main road so lots of tourist. A great beach.

My favourite beach in Port Antonio. Fantastic food, good range of jerk. Everyone there is friendly. Not too busy but enough people to feel safe and have a good atmosphere. Often play good music there. Don't get hassled as much compared to other beaches in Jamaica

Beautiful beautiful beach. We stayed at the Great Hut which is like a 10 minute walk in a rock path - ocean has waves - you can surf, and even reach out to the Great Hut to dive off from a cliff (which i didn't do - but others seem to enjoy the thrill) - also may have great reggae... More

After a long day on the road and visiting the Boston jerk center this beach was the perfect place for some sea water therapy. Even though we had a great time at the blue lagoon and the Castle and Jamaica Plantation hotel I wanted a sea bathe. However you have to pay for access to the bathroom and there are... More

the Jerk meat is still good...a bit of a trek outside of Port Antonio town, so you can get a taxi or private car to Boston Beach ...peaceful

Very clean free public beach. Good waves. Great fried chicken. We had a good day there. Would definitely go back. Fun to watch people surf, too.

The beach looks nice. Keep in mind there's more to the beach if you look to the right, past the two huge rocks and there's at least another 100 yards of beach to go. We were about to drop our towels but as we prepared to do so everyone with something to sell descended on us - between that and... More

best spot for surfing. boards are expensive (15 usd per hour). always ask for the good boards and try to negotiate on the price. beach is beautiful and the jerk center is just around the corner.

I thought it was a beautiful beach. The water is much deeper than others we had been to - much more consistent waves. Which is probably why we have heard it's a great place to learn how to surf - which it certainly appears to be. However, the day we visited there were quite a few peddlers/hustlers there. The lifeguards,... More
