The beach has started to erode but there is a section further on the left of the beach that has private little beach huts where you can have your fish and festival and your drinks while you also go for a swim in the beautiful torquise blueish beach.

Jeniffers Fish Spot is my regular hangout for a great grilled lobster or steam fish meal. However the lovely beach has been eroded so there is not much beach area to hand out. In a couple of years there will be no beach. But the seafood restaurants are all there if you like to eat.

A small group of five (5) visited Prendy's on August 25. We selected our own fish individually, added some drinks and side orders, then chatted while we waited. It was a good hangout with friends; good clean music, cold beer, restroom facilities and the splashing sea! The wait was about 30 minutes or so, and my first try at the... More

Was here last week for the Olympics 4x100 relay finals and was a really great vibe and atmosphere! We had lobsters and steamed fish! Very good. The fried lobster was my favorite. Will definitely return. If you go there try Bev's and Son's or Schreechie international. 👌🏾

We had a great time at this local hangout at the recommendation of a friend in Portmore. There are plenty of food stalls to eat local favorites and freshly caught seafood at non-tourist prices. This gorgeous soft beach is perfect for playing in the sand or wading or swimming, which is a rare combo in this part of the island... More

My husband and I loved going to Hellshire Beach, but you need to research it a little, and know what to expect. It isn't for everyone! You will be approached by the vendors as you enter to go to the place. The beach is definitely short (not much sand before ocean), so it's not really for sunbathing. What do you... More

Strongly recommend being accompanied by a local when you head on to hellshire beach. Not very tourist friendly. However, you will get a feel of the real Jamaican vibe. They have a nice seafood shack next to the water

Went to Prendy's and had some fried snapper and festival. It took about 30 minutes from order selection to the table. The staff was friendly and the food was priced reasonably. The place was sanitary. The view of the beach was perfect. We listened to music, were offered custom craft by business men, and had enjoyable chatter while taking photos.... More

Have been visiting Jamaica for over 20 years. Portland is my favorite area. Have a friend who lives in Kingston. First time staying in Kingston. Totally impressed. I understood beaches wouldn't be as accessible. Researched before trip. Two beaches according to Trip Advisor. Hellshire & Ft. Clarence. First visit to Hellshire. We had a seasoned driver accompanying us. When you... More
