Cornwall Beach is situated in the Montego Bay region, one of the most crowded ones in Jamaica. Don’t worry about the crowds though, as there’s enough space for everyone; you will enjoy the calm waters, pure white sands and the breathtaking vista. All of these combined make Cornwall Beach a recommended destination for your upcoming vacation.

Hellshire Beach is another famed Jamaican beach, located near Portmore. This one is famed for the safe swimming and the tasty fried fish cooked by locals in the bars that you can find near the beach. Hellshire Beach brings a combination of black and white sands, which is quite unique in the whole country. For decades this place had quite a reputation for being a health retreat.

If you want a true Caribbean experience then visiting Negril and the popular 7-Mile Beach is one of the main objectives for your trip. Here you can view the best that the nature has to offer, in a luxurious place that will help you forget about any problems you might have. The waters here are clear, creating a seamless transition from sand to the sea. The sun and temperatures are magic, allowing you to take the time to enjoy the little things in life.

Bloody Bay, another beach in Negril is a little smaller than 7-Mile, but it’s not that busy most of the year so this can be the perfect place for relaxation. There are beach chairs, some bars, clear water or just about anything you might need to have a good time.

Last, but certainly not least, we have Reggae Beach which is one of the most interesting places you can find in Jamaica. It might be a normal beach at first, but it does have an evening schedule that includes dinner and music served under the stars. This is the place there numerous reggae stars come to rehearse in front of an audience that is passionate for this kind of music. Reggae Beach is a statement of musical culture which will live on for years, it has even received numerous awards for this thing alone.
