7 Mile Beach
It’s famous for a reason and while some private resorts have blocked off parts of this beach, it’s big enough for everyone to enjoy. There are several restaurants, parks and access points along the strip that allow you to swim these warm, pristine waters for a nominal fee, for free or for lunch at the restaurant.
Bonus: Ask a local, like a cabbie, to point you to Half Moon Beach. This beach is not very well known and provides a secluded spot just north of Negril in the sleepy town of Lucea, Hanover.
Doctor’s Cave Beach
Montego Bay is blessed with beautiful beaches that it was so hard to just pick one. The prettiest of them all might be Doctor’s Cave Beach located right on the hip strip. For a small fee, you’ll have access to upgraded amenities, a large sandy area and shallow waters perfect for families to enjoy.
Bonus: Aquasol Beach Park also in Montego Bay boasts arcade games, bumper cars and rides for those seeking a little more play than just chilling on the beach.
