Beaches in Jolly Harbour

The waters that wash ashore the beaches of Jolly Harbour come from the Caribbean Sea, which means they tend to be calm and warm -- just the type of environment families and leisurely swimmers look for in a beach.  Add to that the fact that most of the sands along the shores are powder soft and smooth, and you'll find some of the most desireable beaches on the west coast located here.

Jolly Beach

Cove Bay Beach: Cove Bay Beach is located right across from Jolly Harbor. With that said, it is much quieter and much less developed than Jolly Harbor.

A second option that beach-goers can consider is Ffryes Beach. This is a great swimming beach because the ocean floor is so clear, matching the empty white softness of the shore. There is little shade to be found here, so bring your sunblock.

Hermitage Bay: There's a serenity and quiet to Hermitage Bay, empty with the exception of the close by resort of the same name. It's a little known locale, with dark green hills on either side of the bay and a beautiful view of the turquoise Caribbean sea.

The table just below summarizes more information on the the beaches available in and around the area.
