Doctor's Cave Beach, Montego Bay

(3.7/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
Experience soft white sands and calm sheltered waters of Doctor's Cave Beach, named so after it was donated to the community by Dr. Alexander James McCatty. The site became even more popular after a respected early 20th-century osteopath commented on the waters supposed rejuvenating qualities. You're able to rent umbrellas and chairs here, however, the trees that line the beach provide some natural shade. Take to the clear water with your snorkeling gear or relax on the sand with cocktail in hand. Add Doctor's Cave Beach and other attractions to your Montego Bay trip itinerary using our Montego Bay vacation planner.

  • $ 6 per person for entry, six dollars for a mattress, $ 6 for an umbrella. For that price, you'll have a row in front of you, two rows behind you and a meter space of each side. The beach has to be beautiful, but today the small coral stands that remain are completely damaged. An example of the wrong side of the Jamaica.

  • We loved the Doctor's Cave Beach. Nice and clean and not too crowded, except when the cruise passengers arrived. Nice restaurants with good service and food.  more »
