Stunning! Fantastic waves for body surfing and beautiful soft white sands. There is a fresh water river that runs into the beach which you can float down in crystal waters, until it meets the sea. It's like being in a fairy tale or Disney movie, but better, as this place is made by mother nature. There are good loos on... More

Want to get away from a hectic work schedule this is the best place to go and unwind. The sound of the waves from the ocean is relaxing, the river and beach on the property is worth enjoying.

This is a marvellous beach, where you can enjoy both the waves of the ocean and the tranquility of its natural basins and river. It is a great spot for families with small children, as they can approach the sea safe and in the context of a powerful and pictorial surrounding nature.

Frenchmans's Cove is absolutely beautiful! I've been coming here since I was a child and I always have a nice time. The beach is very relaxing and I love that they serve drinks and food. The water is cold but the scenery makes up for it. I highly reccomend.

Beautiful and well kept, no hassle, bliss. There is a charge of $10 or even better 2000 Jamaican. Charge is well worth paying as the beach is well kept and maybe quieter because of the charge. Pure bliss.
