Resort Summary

One of the main reasons Jamaica’s second largest city, Montego Bay, is so popular is the dream-worthy Caribbean beaches. Located on the north coast, it has many lovely beaches including the famous Doctor’s Cave Beach – originally owned by a doctor who believed the water here was therapeutic. He eventually gave the beach to the community who built a private member’s club there.

Because of the water’s supposed healing properties and the beach’s natural outstanding beauty – boasting a 200-metre long stretch of white sand – many hotels have sprung up nearby. The beach is part of the Montego Bay Marine Park, which is a protected area with coral reefs. The members club is open to non-members for a fee, so you can speak to them or your hotel about snorkelling gear. Another well-known public beach is Walter Fletcher Beach where you’ll find the Aquasol Theme Park.
