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 part of Saint Mary Parish, 1.4 miles east-southeast of Iter Boreale, Golden Grove Beach is on the East coast of Jamaica. You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying very close. Even active vacationers with jam-packed itineraries will discover advantages to finding a beach that isn't surrounded by thousands of hotel rooms; beaches less-traveled like Golden Grove Beach might not be typical "beach scenes", but are nice and private.
