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.

Situated less than a hundred yards northwest of downtown Montego Bay, Belvedere Beach is on the North West coast of Jamaica. You should think about stopping by regardless of whether you're staying in the vicinity. If hustle and bustle isn't your style, you'll appreciate that Jamaica has plenty of secluded beaches. Of course, some vacationers come to Jamaica looking for activity, and are better off visiting Belvedere Beach, one of the few beaches that draws a significant crowd.

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.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, though you may be able to use the facilities at a nearby business.

Be mindful that Belvedere Beach's location is an urban area, so factor that into your plans.
