All your life you dreamed of taking a vacation and suddenly it is almost time! Now, you might be feeling the pressure to get the most out of it, right?
To make this vacation special you have to realize your own special needs and wants and incorporate all this into a well structured, fulfilling time. So some planning is in order.
If you haven't, but I hope you have, consider Jamaica. It has a variety of beaches to choose from. Jamaica has the beaches that feature the traditional joys of pristine white sand and blue, clear waters, but also the rough, craggy type of beaches where you will find pebble filled shores and even some black sand. Whether you are looking for quiet secluded beaches, or lively ones filled with fun activities and vibrant people, you will definitely find a beach or two you can enjoy here.
Doctor's Cave Beach in Montego Bay, is known as a classic Caribbean vacation beach. It is about five miles long and covered with a fine white sandy beach that borders clear, cool waters. It is quite popular but is never quite crowdy and usually have a fair share of both locals and visitors.
An example of the rough Jamaican beaches is Negril, where some of the most wild, untouched areas by the sea can be found. Look for craggy cliffs, amazing beauty, and lots of solitude – a favorite of naturalists from around the world. Another rough beach is Crane Beach, by Black River, notable for the naturalness of its environment.
If you have a family, especially with young children, there are several beaches in Jamaica. These are known for their gentle waters that lack the strong currents and undertows found in other areas, making swimming safer for children. Some of the best are the Harmony Beach Park in Montego Bay, San San Beach in Port Antonio, Blue Lagoon Beach, which is also in Port Antonio, and Dunn’s River Beach, located in Ocho Rios, fairly close to the famous waterfalls.
For the surfer in the family, consider Boston Beach, where surfing equipment is easy to rent. And, the beaches of Long Bay offer the most consistent waves in Jamaica. For adventure, try Treasure Beach. But, while adventurous to the surfer, the undercurrent can be strong.
And, those in search of beaches that combine the joys of sun, sand and surf with an active social scene or party scene will certainly enjoy Frenchman’s Cove in Port Antonio.
Seven Mile Beach in Negril is considered a favorite and is lined with resorts and restaurants and quite a few bars as well, so you are guaranteed to have a good time. other Negril beaches can be seen here.
There are more, but these are among the best beaches in Jamaica!
Jamaica is a gorgeous with about 200 miles of beaches. There are beaches to suit most every taste, from peaceful and natural surroundings to the pristine white sands and full services of the resorts, from beaches perfect for active water sports beaches to those known for their active social scene.
Just a little planning will help you to choose the best beach for you. And, wherever you decide to go...have a great vacation.
