What You Can Expect

Doctor’s Cave Beach Admission with Round-Trip Transfer in Montego Bay

Relax on the beach in Montego Bay!

After pickup from your hotel in Montego Bay, descend upon Doctor’s Cave Beach in the morning or afternoon (depending on which option you select). You’ll have half a day to spend however you’d like — swimming in the Caribbean Sea, lounging on the white-sand beach or taking part in some of the activities on offer.

There’s a reason Doctor’s Cave Beach, known for its healing properties, is the most popular beach in Montego Bay. The crystal-clear water was declared by early 20th-century doctors (who entered the beach through a cave, since destroyed by a hurricane in 1932) to have curative properties for healing ailments and restoring good health. With temperatures ranging year-round from 78 – 84 degrees Fahrenheit (22 – 28 degrees Celsius), the buoyant water is an ideal place for a dip.

If you’re feeling active, choose from a selection of water sports and games (own expense) like beach volleyball, a water trampoline or searching for marine life as you snorkel the coral reef — part of the Montego Bay Marine Park. If you just want to relax, you can rent a beach chair or lilo (inflatable mattress) to place under the shade of an umbrella (each at own expense) on the manicured beach.

When you’re hungry, just head to the Groovy Grouper Beach Bar and Grill to purchase a meal or drinks (own expense). Or find sundries and souvenirs at the gift shops, where a cyber café is available. You’ll find well-kept changing rooms, showers and bathrooms at Doctor’s Cave Bathing Club to refresh yourself before return transport to your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Nice Beach! Clear water, beautiful sand. And a restaurant for food and drinks!

4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

This trip was pretty good. Make sure that you bring cash with you. The driving service didn't have cash on them, so I had to pay my own way into the beach area 6. Otherwise, really cool place. Magaritaville is right down the street, along with shops and the first major hotel in Montego Bay. There are plenty of bars and night clubs to check out as well. Take a little time to wonder around and get an idea of where you might want to go after dark. The beach itself has great snorkeling. On the far left side of the beach by the dock, you can see the old tower that fell into the ocean during the last major hurricane I am told. The reefs are full of life! There were plenty of little schools of fish, sting rays, chub fish, and other reef dwellers to see! I had enough time to snorkel for awhile and explore the many shops up and down the street. It was a great package, I was just a little disappointed that I had to pay my way into the beach when it was supposed to be taken care of. The company did reimburse me as soon as I was picked up, so that was greatly appreciated. Besides that little hiccup, it was a great package!

1 star rating: I do not recommend this June 2015

The beach was great but the return bus never showed up. Had to hitch a ride with a local back to the hotel.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this February 2015

1st of all the beach was awesome second the driver never picked us back up. The company said he came twice really we were sitting right in the lobby area so it cost us another 30 to get back to the hotel so my trip with this company cost me an additional 30 dollars and they never even called to say sorry or anything....
