Best beaches in Jamaica

When the great goddess in the sky made the earth she finished in six days. On the seventh, she went to the beach.

These are MACO’s top picks for heavenly beaches in irie Jamaica.

Seven Mile Beach, Negril

This beach has sand like sugar and water chilled like a cool daquiri. Since a day of bronzing in this slice of paradise will make you thirsty enough, sip a pina colada as you model up and down seven miles of sweet beach past bars, grills, hotels, water sports, local vendors and fellow sun worshippers. There’s no doubt that this beach broke the mold.

Cosmos Beach, Negril 

Cosmos is a quiet stretch for star crossed lovers to sneak in some romance. Hold hands, stare into each other’s eyes, reconnect with the universe. Cosmo’s is a private beach with a small entry fee, but it’s waived if you dine at the restaurant. Feeling peckish? The seafood gets rave reviews. Or just grab a cold one and toast to paradise. Don’t worry if you have one too many – you can just snooze it off in a cozy hammock swaying in the breeze.

Doctor’s Cave, Montego Bay

Doctor’s Cave is the perfect place for sea therapy. The beach is small with divine snorkeling along the protected marine park. You’ll definitely want a waterproof camera for this one. The water is calm and sparkling and the underwater Eden is all yours to revere. Emerge from the heavenly sea to swaddle yourself in soft sand and catch up on your daily dosage of Red Stripe. It’s just what the doctor ordered.

Long Bay, Portland

Surfers give this eastern stretch two thumbs up for seclusion and rolling surf. Long Bay will give you a glimpse into the raw, rootsy Jamaica, away from the glitter of the tourist strips. Located near a small fishing village close to Reach Falls, the sea is rough and the reward is in finding an authentic Shangri-la on earth.

Boston Beach, Portland

Boston beach got its moniker from the banana trade that flowed between Boston and Jamaica. Boston beach has some serious surfing, but it is truly the promised land of Jerk meats. With the aroma of seasoning always in the air, once you cross the threshold of Boston beach, you won’t go hungry. And as a bonus, you’ll only be a stone’s throw from the famous blue mountains.
