Doctor's Cave, Jamaica

Doctor's Cave Beach

Doctor's Cave Beach

In 1906, an eccentric physician called Dr Alexander McCatty turned his beach property on Montego Bay into a bathing club that he and his friends reached via a cave (the cave has since been destroyed by a hurricane and access is via a gatehouse).


The water that laps the little beach was said to cure a variety of ailments; whatever the truth of that, it is clear as crystal.

Who goes?

Anyone willing to pay the $5 entrance fee, including local people, holidaymakers and visitors from passing cruise ships.

Regular visitors can join the Bathing Club (www.doctorscavebathingclub.com; £53 a year or £90 for families) which gives access to the changing facilities and showers in the clubhouse as well as the spa.

What is there to do?

The beach is within the Montego Bay Marine Park so is excellent for snorkeling and swimming. There's a cybercafé in the clubhouse and all the other attractions of the area are a short walk away.

Bites and bars

The club's food court and beach bar provide a variety of meals and drinks. Or try the Grotto Bar at nearby Doctors Cave Beach Hotel (www.doctorscave.com) or the Groovy Grouper (www.groovygrouper.com) on the beach.

Getting there

Montego Bay is on the north-west coast of Jamaica, within easy-driving distance of Sangster International Airport.
