St Bran's Burg Beach

Just outside of the popular resort town of Montego Bay is St. Bran's Burg. This town catches an overspill of tourists looking for a quieter place to spend their vacation, and many turn to St. Bran's Burg Beach for a less crowded beach.

Located in the vicinity of Montego Bay, 1.9 miles north-northwest of Spot Valley, St Bran's Burg Beach is on the North West coast of Jamaica. You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying in the immediate vicinity. St Bran's Burg Beach is a distinguishable relaxation spot because it's one of the best spots for escaping over-crowded hangouts in the town proper. Most other beaches in Jamaica offer views of the sea that are just as pretty, but tend to be busier because they're right around the corner from the area's major hotels and resorts.
