Windsor Castle Beach

The sand is gray on this beach and its a thin patch before it meets ocean on one side or trees and brush on the other. One of the best features of this beach is rocky formations by the shore that make for scenic and turbulent splashes of waves. The sheer length of it is good for lengthy walks on the shore, combing for shells or maybe interesting little sea critters.

Positioned on the eastern outskirts of Saint Mary Parish, 2.1 miles northwest of Buff Bay, Windsor Castle Beach is on the East edge of Jamaica. You might think about stopping by even if you aren't staying very close. There are plenty of advantages to visiting a beach that isn't packed full of hotel guests; relatively untouched parts of the coast like Windsor Castle Beach might not be typical "beach scenes", but are nice and private.

Amenities and Ambiance

Please note that public restrooms are not available, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun. You'll find the waters off-shore to be clear and good for snorkeling, so grab some equipment if you're wanting to check out the underwater sites.

If you find that you enjoy beaches which grant an idyllic environment, then maybe head on over to Windsor Castle Beach; it's back within a more natural section of Jamaica.
