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 coast of Jamaica. You should think about stopping by even if you aren't staying in the vicinity. If you're looking for a quiet part of the coast, away from crowded tourist attractions, you might really enjoy an afternoon at Bluefields Beach.
