Treasure Beach

Gray and peppered with boats, this isn't a picturesque locale, but it may still be fun to beach comb. This beach also offers a view of the sunset over the water.

Situated on the southeastern part of Treasure Beach, this beach is on the South West coast of Jamaica. You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying in the immediate vicinity. Those of you who might prefer a beach that's a little less crowded, but still fun and active, may really like the middle ground found at Treasure Beach. It's slightly off the beaten path, but it's not dead and empty either.

Amenities and Ambiance

Of course, there is also a restaurant located right on-site. Every location around the world has its own unique cuisine, and Jamaica is no different. One of the best places to experience delicious local dishes is right on the water. Sometimes, hotels offer to pack up on-the-go lunches for their guests. Otherwise, street vendors and casual walk-up eateries will have take-out dishes you can bring to the beach.

The concession stand located here is another lunchtime alternative. On some days, it may be possible to order some food from one of the mobile vendors who operate at or near this spot.

This beach has public restrooms——something you'll appreciate if you spend more than a couple of hours here. The water here is of good snorkeling quality, so grab some gear if you're hoping to see what lies beneath the surface.

the area surrounding Treasure Beach is not near many tourist spots. As such, struggling to obtain an unclaimed service at Treasure Beach is not a thing you will do very often, in spite of what the time is when you get there.
