Bluefields Beach

Bluefields Beach is quite pretty. Large trees serve as a backdrop to the white sand and blue waters. The road runs very close to one edge of the beach but you can walk out towards the sea and lose sight of it. The ocean floor is clear and not great for snorkeling, but its excellent for walking out into the water or wading without worry of slimy seaweed or sharp rocks.

Located near the heart of Westmoreland Parish, 1.8 miles north of Belmont, Bluefields Beach is on the West edge of Jamaica. You should think about stopping by even if you aren't staying nearby. Even if you love being in the middle of all the action, there are some perks to visiting a beach that isn't surrounded by thousands of hotel rooms; relatively untouched parts of the coast like Bluefields Beach make great places to spread out and relax.

Amenities and Ambiance

Unfortunately, public restrooms aren't available, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business.
