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 think about stopping by even if you aren't staying very close. Golf Beach is one of those beaches which is rarely too crowded, even though it's central to many of the area's urban amenities.

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.

Please note that public restrooms are not available, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business.
