Renowned for its scenic shores and electric nightlife, Montego Bay (also known as Mo’ Bay) is Jamaica’s party capital. Whether you want to dance to reggae around a beach bonfire, try water sports, or snorkel amid schools of tropical fish in Montego Bay Marine Park—these are the beaches to visit. 

Doctor's Cave Beach

If you’re looking for an island paradise, this is just what the doctor ordered. With 900 feet (274 meters) of pristine sand, warm water, and Caribbean sunshine, Doctor’s Cave is by far the most popular beach in Montego Bay. An entrance fee is required, but the beach is well-equipped with pristine restrooms, ample deck chairs and umbrellas, and a stocked beach bar.  

Walter Fletcher Beach

At Walter Fletcher Beach (also known as Aquasol Beach Park) you’ll find plenty of shade, calm surf, and brightly colored umbrellas. Its close proximity to the port makes it a top choice for cruise ship passengers. Walter Fletcher Beach is also the starting point for most yacht cruises and catamaran tours around Montego Bay.

At the far end of Montego Bay’s “Hip Strip” (Gloucester Avenue), Dead End Beach is much more pleasant than its name suggests. The public beach is free and often much quieter than its rivals, so you can swim in the shimmering turquoise waters without battling crowds.

Luminous Lagoon

While not technically a beach, the Luminous Lagoon is a beloved natural wonder located off the coast of Falmouth. A short drive east of Montego Bay, the lagoon’s  iridescent blue waters are even more magical at sunset. Head there on a night cruise from Montego Bay and dive in to swim in the glowing lagoon.
