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.

Positioned in Bull Bay, 3.7 miles east-southeast of Harbour View, Cable Hut Beach is on the East edge of Jamaica. You might think about stopping by even if you aren't staying nearby. Cable Hut Beach stands out from other beaches because it's the ideal location for getting away from vacation stresses, like overly crowded restaurants and attractions. Most other beaches in Jamaica may have the same pleasing, tropical setting as Cable Hut Beach, but are usually busier because they're right around the corner from the area's major hotels and resorts.
