Doctor’s Cave Beach
Don’t want to drive 40 minutes to Negril.? Drive 15 minutes to a pristine Riviera-type white sand beach and gorgeous translucent aqua water in Montego Bay. Doctor’s Cave Beach allows no radios, no footballs, no vendors. It is large, quiet, beautiful, se cure and well managed.


Walter Fletcher Beach
Near Doctor’s Cave Beach in Montego Bay. This is a less elegant but more lively beach and park that preteens and teenagers love. Doctor’s Cave Beach and Walter Fletcher Beach are within a 10-minute walk or 1/2-minute drive of each other. i.e., guests wishing to read a novel and take a nap in the serene ambiance of Doctor’s Cave Beach can be satisfied while their children romp on playful Walter Fletcher Beach nearby.

BeachTryall Beach
Tryall is world famous for its golfing facilities, but one of its best-kept secrets is its beach and Great house. Located 4 miles from Star Apple on the road to Nigril, it is one of our favourite beaches. Spend the day there and take tea in the afternoon up at the Great house. Everyone there is always so busy playing golf, we always seem to have the whole beach to ourselves!


Round Hill Beach
Small but gorgeous beach with 2 beach bars, a massive pool, endless water sports, kiddies club, Tennis, and a state of the art health spa, (there is an entrance fee)


Half Moon Beach
This must be one of Jamaica’s finest beaches. The trick here is to go there to check out the shops, then go through the hotel to the beach restaurant, have lunch there and the spend the rest of the day on the beach or exploring the vast grounds dotted with lots of cosy spots, bars & pools.
