Jacmel Beach, Jacmel

1.4
#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.

  • Was excellent and the hotel took a walk on the beach every night. Not like sound waves and light can be dangerous. Many young people, was crowded with stalls.
