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.

Located 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 whether or not you are staying nearby. Travelers who want to avoid long taxi rides will find that Belvedere Beach is a good choice for them. It's within walking distance of so many hotels and activities, and is located in a pretty major tourist area.

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

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