Golden Grove Beach

In the parish of Golden Grove is a quiet beach of the same name. Not very well known amongst tourists, Golden Grove is a great place to find tranquility on an island of overcrowded beaches.

Located on the eastern edge of Saint Mary Parish, 1.4 miles east-southeast of Iter Boreale, Golden Grove Beach is on the East edge of Jamaica. You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying in the vicinity. Golden Grove Beach stands out because it's the ideal location for escaping over-crowded hangouts in the town proper. Most other beaches in Jamaica may be just as pretty, but are usually more cramped since they're located by some of the most popular tourist areas in town.
