Winnifred Beach, Port Antonio

4.4
#2 of 10 in Outdoors in Port Antonio
Enjoy some relaxation on Winnifred Beach, a shady white sand beach in the Fairy Hill community. Swim in its calm blue water, rest in the thick shade of trees and vines, or take a walk along the bay shore. The transparent water and nearby coral reef are great for snorkeling and spotting an array of different fish species. Hang out at one of the beach bars and restaurants, where you can try Jamaican cuisine and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere.

  • No entrance fee, parking available. Unfortunately dirty (waste). Big beach with shady trees. Vendors can be pushy  more »
  • Despite being considered a beach locals also see many tourists. Have stalls with various types of food, including that of Patty (A cake that seems baked) and roasted lobster. The beach has many rocks into the water, then the shallow end is uncomfortable. Tip: for those who don't already know that car the ascent/descent to get to the Beach/Road is very steep.

  • We arrived in the afternoon so I don't know if in the morning is better ... However narrow Beach dirty overgrown with seaweed and full of dogs. With dreadlocks who smoke galore and of course they want a contribution x hold the beach? Clean??? It was not worth any went ...

  • Roads leading to the beach were not so good but I saw men working on it (and this was on a Sunday, in Jamaica 😳). Also, there aren't enough signs leading up to the beach so it's good to ask the locals you pass. The beach doesn't have a closing time and you can take your drinks down with you. It was a good vibe, though it would be wise to tread wisely as there is a huge rock formation in the shallow end, close to the shore. Not even sure if there was running water to wash off after our dip.
  • Beautiful beach! It's never very crowded and the water is a beautiful blue. For the most part it is kept pretty clean.
  • Wonderful even though I went there in the afternoon my family and I had a great time #Need more cleaning and fresh water and the road to finish fix it's a great jem
  • Beautiful beach, just need to be more clean.
  • Lovely beach. Great music lovely view. Can purchase snacks and drinks.
