Jacmel Beach, Jacmel

#6 of 8 in Parks in Haiti
Take a stroll along Jacmel Beach, a sandy bay offering a walkway, public art, and a chance to mingle with locals. Check out the mosaic wall murals on the boardwalk, created by a foundation for children. Have a meal at one of the nearby restaurants serving up fresh fish and lobster. An excellent place for a photo of the coastline, the landscape here remains unimpeded thanks to the lack of large crowds. Even though it is a safe place to swim, visitors generally come for a bit of leisure and a nice view. Some have reported trash on the shore, so temper expectations.

    Jackson has become ​quite dirty over the years, the culture is gone and food is scarce. Haiti is a beautiful place with lots to offer. Try Port Salut, Dan's Island, Jeremie, and Cap Haitian, instead.  more »
