Green Island East Beach

This is a long beach on a deep and beautiful cove in Jamaica's northwest coast. Trees pepper the beach and provide shade for visitors.

Set in Hanover Parish, 1.2 miles west of Green Island, Green Island East Beach is on the West coast of Jamaica. You might think about stopping by regardless of whether you are staying very close. This beach is not just a tropical beauty, it's special in that it's one of the few quiet beaches in Jamaica. While Green Island East Beach may be a little harder to reach, it allows you to relax without being bothered by the noise of the crowds.

Amenities and Ambiance

While not completely isolated, its definitely not a developed and pristine beach. If you walk to the eastern cape of the bay, you'll find a sandbar.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline, so if you're visiting with small children you might want to consider a different location.

Green Island East Beach brings visitors an idyllic and peaceful getaway, especially since the location that surrounds the beach won't be overly crowded.
