Nearby Beaches

Naturally, since Emerald Escape Beach Resort is located on Dump-Up Beach and Events Park, relaxing on the sand is popular with guests staying at this property. Back in the 1970s, the part of Montego Bay in which this beach is located was not very well taken care of, and locals called it "dumped upon." Then, the Jamaican government stepped in, hoping to revitalize the area. So was born Dump-Up Beach.
