My favorite beach in Portland

This is a gorgeous beach! Even has a freshwater pond near it to rinse off! Snorkeling is fantastic and the food is wonderful, as well. Plan to spend a day here!

This beach is hidden down a hill from the main road. It is about 10-15 minutes from Port Antonio. The beach is beautiful and clean. There are small restaurants with food and drinks available.

Winifred Beach is a wonderful place to visit when in Jamaica. There are a number of places to eat, a shower, and bathrooms. But if a beach is free, do not try to bully donations from the visitors. Leave it up to them to donate to this worthy cause.

We decided not to drive down but park at the top. Normal 2wd cars had made it down though! Once downthe track the beach and vibe was wonderful. It's a fantastic resource that should not be sold on.

Been here so many times hard to say how many and each time I have a great time. Food and activities are always interesting. Great for every kind of traveler. Free to the public as far as I know. I definitely recommend it.

Just came back from Winnifred Beach, very relaxing beach. Would be better with water shoes. Vendors weren't too aggressive at all. The ocean water was amazing, My girlfriend likes the sun and I like shade and the trees that line the beach provide both! Food and beverages were plentiful and there was a natural pool that feeds into the ocean!... More

Long, beautiful, protected beach with food! Also snorkel rentals are available. Roped off area for kids to swim and a fresh water "river" that you can clean off in before you leave!

Enjoy the beach with the locals. Nice places te lay down, in the sun or in the shade of a tree. Nice sweet water pool. Good food and nice people. Beach kept clean so give the a few dollars for his good work.
