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.
There are a large selection of beaches to choose from in and around the area. Click on individual beach names for detailed information about that particular beach.
Cove Bay Beach: When heading towards the peninsula that the beach is located on, you will need to take the road going North away from Jolly Harbor and towards the Hermitage Bay. After passing the resort, the road turns into a dirt road that then splits north and south.
A second place to consider is Ffryes Beach. Frryes Beach has clear, calm water. There's not a lot to see snorkeling, but swimming will be relaxing and you wont have to dodge coral reefs or rock formations beneath the waves.
Hermitage Bay: Beautiful, quiet and close to Jennings village and Jolly Harbour, an off-road car is recommended for the journey to Hermitage Bay.
