Beaches in Falmouth

Most of the beaches in Falmouth are free public beaches with white sands, calm waters, and vendors backing the shores hopping to sell off their handmade crafts, fresh cooked jerk meats, and cold beverages.  Some spots, on the other hand, are public in name, but charge for the use of facilities like changing rooms, restrooms, and showers.

Beach Choices In The Area

You'll discover a large number of beaches to enjoy in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some locations, for those who enjoy this relaxing pastime. You can click on the name of each beach to get additional information concerning that particular stretch of sand.

Rio Bueno Beach

A beach scene that's good for snorkeling is Silver Sands Beach. Smooth and long, this beach is peppered with villas and visitors. There is a cute little gazebo by the water.

Another location to consider is St Bran's Burg Beach. Just outside of the popular resort town of Montego Bay is St. Bran's Burg. This town catches an overspill of tourists looking for a quieter place to spend their vacation, and many turn to St. Bran's Burg Beach for a less crowded beach.

Rio Bueno Beach: Just beyond the white sands of Rio Bueno Beach is a line of verdant trees that set the tone of privacy and seclusion. The waters, meanwhile, are a deep, dark blue.

Look through the table below for a list of beaches that can be found in and around the area.
