Frenchman’s Cove is a private beach where you can avoid the crowds and enjoy one of the better beaches in Jamaica. In my opinion US$10 for admission with a beach lounger is not a steep price for full day at the beach.
Patrons can bring their own cooler and picnic basket but waiters patrol the beach to take orders for drink and food. The cold Red Stripe Beer was welcome refreshment at a reasonable price. We brought our own picnic so did not sample the food. The change rooms were newly renovated and adequate.
When the sea breeze is active the waves allow for body surfing, small children and weak swimmers need to be cautious during these conditions. On the other hand the river is very placid and the water is very clean with a clear sandy bottom.
My visit in January brought back fond memories of my own childhood as I had visited with my parents on several occasions over 50 years ago.
