#1 of 11 in Outdoors in Port Antonio
Relax on Frenchman's Cove, a distinctive Port Antonio beach. The peaceful white sand beach is nestled at the mouth of a freshwater stream that undulates through the trees and into the sea. Lounge under the thick tree shade and enjoy the scenic view of lush green cliffs and turquoise water. Sunbathe, swim, and take advantage of the contrast between the cool, rushing stream and the warm Caribbean Sea. Have a meal or refreshing cocktail at the restaurant and immerse yourself in the tranquil atmosphere of the cove.

  • You need $10 to charges or 1000JD Beach, then it is cheaper to pay Jamaican dollar. You Park within and along a small stretch of tropical forest, the most important under the trees there is a plaque, you cross a bridge over the river which flows right into the Bay, and you are in heaven! Beautiful golden sandy beach, sea wave but slightly transparent, a river waters, absolute peace. You can rent sunbeds (400JD each) and order drinks and food that will be served directly on the beach, I always recommend to pay in addition Jamaican dollars, credit cards are not accepted. Is the beach which we mainly studied: clean, no stray dogs or hawkers to obsess, free internet that works sometimes, you spend anything but well worth it. Advice to snorkel along the tail of the River, there are many beautiful tropical fish and even some nice fish from the River, then the current sweet intensifies and transports you up at sea, as if it were a big slide. And don't go if possible over the weekend when it is stormed by large groups of tourists and locals, which can cause you to lose some of its charm.
