Burwood Beach

There's a bar on this beach, part of the resort that covers half the land near the beach. The sand is blindingly white and unbelievably soft. The water is clear, clean, warm and sparkling. Enjoy beach rentals and amenities, but definitely not seclusion.

Located in Trelawny Parish, 0.4 miles east-northeast of White Bay, Burwood Beach is on the North West coast of Jamaica. You might think about stopping by regardless of whether you're staying in the vicinity. Many people find that their favorite beach in Jamaica is one that is usually less active, but could still provide opportunities for social interaction; a somewhat secluded part of the coast called Burwood Beach usually offers the right balance.
