“My favorite beach in Port Antonio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

This is my favorite beach in Port Antonio because of the river. While the beach itself is great, nice waves not too big or too small, I love being able to go from the ocean to the river without getting out of the water. The beach is never too crowded and wait staff will bring a beer and a burger to you in your lounge chair. What else could you ask for?

“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We went to Frenchman's Cove on a Saturday in June, and ended up spending the entire day at the beach without realizing it. It is a small beach, but the view out to sea is beautiful, and the water perfect. One of the best things about Frenchman's Cove is the river that flows into the cove - the river water is cool, clear, and still, making a great alternative to the sea waves. There is a restaurant and bar onsite, and plenty of chairs to use or rent (lounge chairs rent for only US$2). When we were there, there were a number of other visitors, making for a fun afternoon in the sun. The modest entrance fee is well worth the unforgettable experience.

“Cozy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

This is the closest beach to Goblin Hill, it's not large, but it's small and cozy. You can walk from the Villa to the beach. Really nice and clean. The cove is a nice place for your family to have fun.

“Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The most beautiful beach I have even laid eyes on. This beach reminds me of the happiest days of my childhood. Seeing my own children play here has been a dream come true.
