Golf Beach

Not far from the Montego Bay Convention Centre is Golf Beach. Not one of the most popular beaches amongst tourists, Golf Beach is a great locale for vacationers who want to escape the crowds.

Located in the vicinity of Montego Bay, 2.8 miles northwest of Spot Valley, Golf Beach is on the North West coast of Jamaica. You should consider dropping by even if you aren't staying in the immediate vicinity. Vacationers who want a somewhat serene and secluded beach, that's also not too far from the town's amenities may want to give Golf Beach a try. It's just slightly removed from the center of it all, but it also doesn't completely lack a social atmosphere.

How to Access The Beach

You can access Golf Beach by taking a number of dirt side roads off Norman Manely Boulevard.

Amenities and Ambiance

Backed by trees and a grassy area, Golf Beach is a small stretch of blindingly white sand with azure waters.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun.
