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.
You can access Golf Beach by taking a number of dirt side roads off Norman Manely Boulevard.
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.
Visitors will find this beach on the North West coast of Jamaica; it will be near other attractions like Cinnamon Hill Course, which is pretty close, so tourists could take a cab or probably walk to this attraction.
Historical attractions like Rose Hall Plantation provide a nice compliment to a soothing day at Golf Beach, and provide beachgoers with the opportunity to learn about Jamaica's past, without straying too far from the coastline. Actually, this coast is not a great distance away from this historical destination.
