The most convenient one to visit is Crane Beach. Since this beach is a reasonable distance away, your party won't have to journey far to enjoy this beautiful section of the coast. Known for its wild ways is Crane Bay, by Black River. This stretch of sand is underdeveloped, and allows visitors to catch a glimpse of how Jamaican beaches look before resort properties get their hands on them.

If instead you're looking for a more secluded spot of sand, Hunt Bay might be worth a visit. Sandwiched between Kingston and Portmore is the lovely Hunt Bay. Because Hunt's Bay is not set in a populous resort town, vacationers who hope to experience a quiet day at the beach have a better chance of doing so here.
