Boston Beach just gets better...although the water had a stink smell on the last of our three visits for the week. Must try Glasses Jerk Centre although he is only there on weekends...red wine, roast breadfruit and jerk pork sausage and it doesn't get any better; had one of those memorable food moments that was as good as any other, including French Laundry.

water and beach and rocks all nice. surfing and snorkeling all good. music too loud some nights but if you like reggae then it is not a problem. Hawkers were too aggressive but there are few of them and all you need to do is say you are not interested, or haggle over the price if you want to buy something.

Boston Beach is a beautiful little public beach that's right off the main street. It is usually labeled as Boston Beach, Port Antonio but that is false since it is not near Port Antonio although they are both in the parish of Portland.

The roads in that part of the island are atrocious as every few feet there are potholes and more potholes. Even the potholes have potholes (no joke). In contrast to the rest of the island, there is a fair amount of surf at Boston Beach so you can see people surfing, wind surfing, snorkeling and swimming there. This is also a popular spot for guys with dreadlocks to hang out and smoke weed.

Nearer to the street are the famous Jerk chicken vendors who sell food there all day. As a result, the already too narrow streets are almost always lined with parked cars, so I recommend pulling forward a bit and parking further up the street, but still where you can see your car. Overall this is a nice beach but I'm not sure I would recommend it for a family day at the beach. There are other beautiful beaches that don't have the traffic, noise and pot heads that Boston Beach has.

This beach is very nice. The sand is soft, and the waves are large. There are quite a few people that surf here. A must visit when in Port Antonio.

Beautiful bay. Reminds me of Hawaii! Surf boards and lessons are available and fun. Jerk chicken and pork and roast breadfruit available just up the hill -yum!
