The Fun & Popular
Bluefields Beach Park - On The South Coast
I can boast at you that Bluefields Beach is MY community beach and 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.
This is the beach where I recall taking my first dip in our beautiful Caribbean water!
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. 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.
New! There is also now the new Luna Sea Inn 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.
