Frenchman’s Cove beach is one of the most beautiful in Jamaica. Nestled at the outlet of a fresh-water stream, the beach’s white sand and turquoise waters have attracted visitors to Jamaica for decades. Luxuriate under a shade tree, take in the amazing view, cool off in the gentle surf, or go exploring up the river. Does the beach look familiar? It should: you’ve seen it as a film set in popular movies such as Knight and Day, with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. But today, it stars you.
While you’re on the beach, enjoy a cold beverage served with warm, Jamaican hospitality. Lunch is freshly prepared, and can be ordered between 11 am and 5 pm. Want an evening meal? The restaurant would be happy to accommodate you upon request. And on special evenings, dinner is accompanied by live traditional Jamaican music.
In the 50’s an exclusive hideaway for the rich and famous, this lush beach and crystal clear river was the setting for the movie "Lord of the Flies." Bring a raft or an inner tube and float the river .
Order grilled lobster or chicken and have the waiter deliver it right to your lounge chair on the beach.
Back in the 1960’s you might have seen Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor cavorting on the beach in this cove, 8 km (5 miles) east of the center of Port Antonio.
The resort offers secluded villas scattered among the cliffs, in a park like setting above the beach.
You can enjoy one of the area's best white-sand beach. It costs 10 US$ to enter daily from 9 AM to 5 PM.
