There is a timlessness about Frenchmans Cove. Perhaps not as famous as in years gone by it has a shabby chic style. The river and the bay are without comparison.

This is the beach to be! I love the water and the fact that I can opt to go in the river if I am not feeling the beach. I don't usually buy food here as it is a bit expensive and I prefer to explore other restaurants in Port Antonio whenever I visit. The staff are very accommodating as... More

Frenchman's cove is pretty, but mainly for out of town tourists. Beachfront has a local restaurant to sell you food and drinks. Waves were pretty strong if you want to swim.

Frenchman's Cove is like a hidden beach. First, you need to work your way through a park to arrive at a little bay. It has a beautiful beach, but also a small creek that flows into this bay of the Caribbean See. We have made some stunning pictures on this beach. There is a small restaurant: if you are hungry,...

This is the best beach in Port Antonio. The river is on the left side so you can swim in the fresh cool water and the regular beach is right there as well. The best of both waters. Gorgeous.
