Winnifred Beach in Fairy Hill is probably one of the best beach in Jamaica.
The white sand beach sits in a lush tropical cove with crystal clear water and most importantly it's a public beach and is open to everyone at no cost.
It has a vibe unlike the costly private beaches and gated resorts that tend to be too expensive for local Jamaicans. Locals have been operating small food shacks and selling crafts on the beach for over 30 years.
Winnifred is a vital gathering space for socializing and refreshment for all Jamaicans and is also the most favourite beach by many tourists because of its uniqueness.
Today the Free Winnifred Benevolent Society's mission is to ensure that Winnifred Beach remains a public beach, accessible free of charge to the community and tourists.
To do this, we have started a plan to rehabilitate the beach and toilets and reorganize the garbage collection, so as to ensure a level of quality 'adequate to international standards.
Our goal is to develop the quality of services on the beach while preserving its authenticity.
We are aware that the Government has plans to reorganize the beach. We are impatient to discuss these plans with the UDC and work together unite for a common goal... to make Winnifred Beach a premiere destination for Jamaica!
The Free Winnifred benevolent society aims to become an example of how a profitable collaboration between the public and the private can be achieved, enhancing the experience of tourists and local operators and adopting a vision of a real sustainable tourism.
Please support the Winnifred Beach Benevolent Society's efforts to " Keep Winnifred Free".
One Love and Thank You!
