Frenchman's Cove, Port Antonio

Relax on Frenchman's Cove, a distinctive Port Antonio beach. The peaceful white sand beach is nestled at the mouth of a freshwater stream that undulates through the trees and into the sea. Lounge under the thick tree shade and enjoy the scenic view of lush green cliffs and turquoise water. Sunbathe, swim, and take advantage of the contrast between the cool, rushing stream and the warm Caribbean Sea. Have a meal or refreshing cocktail at the restaurant and immerse yourself in the tranquil atmosphere of the cove.

  • It is an interesting place to visit, especially if it is in the eastern region of the country. The entrance costs $10 U.S. dollars or 1000 Jamaican dollars. It has private and secure parking. Depending on the day, you can find the place very full. I believe on Mondays and Tuesdays to be the quietest days to go. The beach has a relatively good structure for food-a "kiosk" that be drink and food. The service is slow, but you will not die of hunger or thirst. Still, I suggest bringing food and drink.

  • Wonderful beach. However it is in need of an upgrade. Has a worn look to the place...beach chairs, food, beach amenities. Still the best beach in the east. Beautiful, scenic, and relaxing.  more »
