Cable Hut Beach

Surfing is the main focal point at Cable Hut Beach, which is located just east of Kingston on Jamaica. The constant stream of rolling waves is so well known for its prime surfing height that a surf school has even grown to call the beach its home.

Located in Bull Bay, 3.7 miles east-southeast of Harbour View, Cable Hut Beach is on the East edge of Jamaica. You might want to drop by even if you aren't staying particularly close by. It's often said that Cable Hut Beach is the ideal location for escaping the hustle of Jamaica's urban areas. Other nearby beaches in Jamaica may have the same warm sand and calming breezes as Cable Hut Beach, but are usually more cramped because they're right around the corner from the area's major hotels and resorts.
