Doctor's Cave Beach, Montego Bay

3.8
#2 of 25 in Beaches in Jamaica
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.

  • Sea of green crystalline Water and white sand, where this combination makes the magical place! There's a bar with drinks and Jamaican music, pretty cool! The only bad thing is that people know we're tourists, then trying to sell a lot of things ... but other than that, it's beautiful too!
