Beaches

Port Antonio has some of Jamaica's most beautiful beaches, from free public beaches to managed beaches with facilities and charging an entrance fee. San San Beach is a private strip of sand that has warm and shallow waters, and some offshore reefs that are ideal for snorkelling. In winter the waves make this a perfect spot to windsurf. One of the region's prettiest beaches is Frenchman's Cove, with its clear waters and white sand. During the 1960s a luxurious hotel resort, visited by the likes of Prince Philip and Elizabeth Taylor, occupied the headland, but has since closed down and fallen to ruin. The secluded cove at Boston Bay is perhaps more famous for its jerk stands than its public beach, with food stalls lining the road that serve jerk in all its forms. The waves, however, have raised its status as one of the best beaches in Jamaica for windsurfing.

Information & Facts

Admission

Some beaches charge admission fees

Language

The official language of Jamaica is English but a local patois is also spoken, a mixture of English, Spanish, and various African languages.

Money

The Jamaican Dollar (JMD) is divided into 100 cents. The island is well supplied with ATMs, banks and bureaux de change. Banking hours are usually Monday to Thursday from 9am to 2pm, and Friday from 9am to 4pm. Cambio exchange offices are found throughout the country, open later than banks and often offering better exchange rates. Retain receipts as proof of legal currency exchange. Exchange bureaux at the airports and hotels also offer better rates than banks. Major credit cards and travellers cheques are widely accepted. Both cash and travellers cheques are best taken in US Dollars.
