Frenchman's Cove property is really beautiful with a fresh water stream meandering throughout and entering in the sea at the beach. The beach is clean and depending on the weather and wind can be anything from a calm sea to big waves. One of the most photographed spots on the island and a filming location for many feature films.

We were early arrivals and found other visitors, locals, and staff at the beach area very engaging. Restaurant on the beach was great for local seafood, Jamaican style, of course!

Frenchman's Cove is a perfect little cove of a beach. Usually its very calm but when we were ther is was quite rough. Despite this we enjoyed jumping in the waves! There is a nice little river that runs into the sea here and it was a great spot to enjoy some calm and cooler water--very refreshing! While it does cost to enter the beach, we thought it was worth it and there are hotel staff there to get you drinks, etc. These staff were very attentive without being intrusive, so it was nice. Try to go early to avoid the crowds (also the sun shines best in the morning on this eastern side of the island).

Loved relaxing on the white sandy beach where a cool fresh water river runs into the warm blue raging sea.

I have never been to a beach so beautiful, and I've been to many! The river that runs into the sea is a unique feature that allows for two different experiences while there. We had a great time and we knew how beautiful it was because it was raining!
