Belvedere Beach

Belvedere Beach is one of three side-by-side crescents of oceanfront property along the northwest coast of Jamaica. Backing the beach is a resort of the same name, which feeds many of the beach's visitors, but travelers staying in other areas often make a trip to the beach as well.

Positioned less than a hundred yards northwest of downtown Montego Bay, Belvedere Beach is on the North West coast of Jamaica. You might want to drop by even if you aren't staying particularly close by. If hustle and bustle isn't your style, you'll appreciate that Jamaica has plenty of secluded beaches. Then again, if you'd rather not visit an empty, untouched part of the coast, you're probably better off trying a beach like Belvedere Beach, with a more upbeat atmosphere.

How to Access The Beach
Gloucester Avenue runs directly behind Belvedere Beach, and serves as the best route to the beach.

Amenities and Ambiance

Exactly what you expect out of a Jamaican Beach, Belvedere features ivory white sand and clear topaz waters.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.

Since Belvedere Beach can be located within a relatively urbanized region, you'll want to plan accordingly.
