“Good place to shop for wooden crafts”
Reviewed June 29, 2010

Been to Silver Sands every year since 1974. The shops are right outside the gate and on the water. Very good carvings and walking distance from your villa. Limited on straw goods but the wood carvings are good and they can make you one while you vacation at SS.

“A great place to purchase crafts, talk to crafters and local fishermen”
Reviewed August 13, 2009

Jacob Taylor Beach, Craft Market and Fishing Village is located a short (less than a 2 minute) walk from Silver Sands. There you will find a craft market with local crafters who are not pushy. They will take the time to answer questions, explain the wood they are carving and even show how something is carved. If given the time, they will do custom work. In addition to the wood crafts, there two variety stores, the handmade baskets are one of the many items they sell.

The fishing village is another part of Jacob Taylor Beach. You can talk to the fishermen, ask questions about their fish traps and what type of fish they catch. It is very interesting if you want to see a little something more of Jamaica than the inside of an all inclusive resort.

These are genuine, nice people and I have been to this area many times in the past three years and felt very safe at all times. There is a Monument to Jacob Taylor. This is very laid back, not a lot of action type of place.
