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.
