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.

Located in Saint Mary Parish, 2.1 miles northwest of Buff Bay, Windsor Castle Beach is on the East edge of Jamaica. You should consider stopping by even if you aren't staying in the vicinity. Travelers in search of a tranquil, secluded setting should consider going off the beaten path to Windsor Castle Beach.
