I can boast at you that Bluefields Beach is MY community beach and surely one of my favourite beaches here in Jamaica! I lived only 3 miles north-east of the beach, in a little district called Beeston Spring.


New! For Authentic Jamaican products, from my very own handsvisit my Etsy store here.


This is the beach where I recall taking my first dip in our beautiful Caribbean water! We call it 'Sabito' - don't ask me what that means, lol. Actually, I need to ask about that :-) 

But anyways, it is what we know it as - from childhood days.

Although it is the most popular beach around this area of the island, for years it was left un-managed.

In the 1990's however, various interest groups came together and gave it a much needed makeover, and today it is the new Bluefields Beach Park.

As a result, there are extensive car parking on the approach road and within the gated Beach Park.

A further set of gates provides pedestrian access to the old road by the beach. It gets very busy at weekends and Jamaican public holidays.

While still a tourist favourite, many locals, especially those from the eastern side of the island (Kingston, Portland, Manchester etc) make this their favourite holiday and beach trip destination.

The beach is about 1 km long! and it has all the necessary sanitary, changing and parking facilities. The swimming is generally regarded as very good, although sometimes we get some uncomfortable waves if there are ocean swells.

Just remember it is still a public beach so there are no chairs nor umbrellas on offer.

The Beach Park however is located in a shady well wooded area. The park also holds a number of small restaurants which are noted for their exquisite local flavour.

This area also has a lot of cozy guest houses and villas, including the Hermitage, Mullion Cove and San Michelle, for those who want a break from the city life.

New! There is also now the new Luna Sea Inn hotel that will be sure to your liking. 

Although I now live in Montego Bay, every now and then I take the time to go down and take a dive with family and friends.
