Green Island North Beach

Along Jamaica's south coast, just before Negril is the aptly named Green Island, where the forestry is so lush and healthy that all you see for miles are trees. But trees are not the only thing to recommend a trip to the area and that is the beaches. Green Island North Beach is among them

Set in the western part of Hanover Parish, 1.2 miles north of Green Island, Green Island North Beach is on the West coast of Jamaica. You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying very close. Even if you love being in the middle of all the action, there are some perks to visiting a beach that isn't crowded into a major metropolitan area; relatively untouched parts of the coast like Green Island North Beach might not be typical "beach scenes", but are nice and private.
