Stunning Coves, Cays and Bays in Jamaica
– Explore the Enticing Island –
All India, 25th March 2015: Jamaica is one of the most sought-after destinations in the Caribbean and the world. Part of its charm is the abundance of access to sparkling shores and tranquil turquoise waters. Jamaica is filled with seductive coves, cays and bays. Here is a list of 5 of the most enchanting ones which is a must-visit in island country.
The largest of the many small cays off the coast of Port Royal, Lime Cay is a part of Jamaica uninhabitable by humans because it is occasionally submerged when the tide comes in. A shuttle or boat rental for the day can be arranged to travel to Lime Cay, but for the intrepid visitors, a small fee will convince a fisherman in the town of Port Royal to give you a ride to the island. About half of the area is wooded, the rest is sand and coral. It has no infrastructure except for a small open building used for the preparation and selling of food. Seclusion and privacy are part of the draw to Jamaicas beaches, and Lime Cay gives a taste of off the beaten path travel without taking you too far away from the city.
Port Antonio, on Jamaicas eastern coast, is snugly located between the Blue Mountains and the Caribbean Sea. The area is considered relatively virgin territory and Frenchmans Cove is a perfectly secluded spot that will make you fall in love with the water instantly. One of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean, let alone Jamaica, this white-sanded shore is set against a magnificent backdrop of exotic tropical gardens and crystal-clear mountain streams. Frenchmans Cove is tucked between two rocky bluffs and consists of a lagoon which meanders around a bar of sand from one direction while the sea barrels from the other, pinched between two tiny headlands that are overhung with greenery giving the beach a luminous green light. The entrance is through lush gardens, which then open up into a gorgeous little secluded beach cove. Theres also a jerk hut on the beach with drinks and food.
Set against a background of lush greenery, Treasure Beach is a six-mile stretch of coral-coloured and sometimes black sands, private coves and rocky shores. For travellers who want to discover the South Coasts vibrant local culture and people and are in search of untrodden beaches, a visit to one of Treasure Beachs main bays Billy’s, Calabash, Fort Charles (also known as Starve Gut) Great and Frenchmans is a must. Uniquely Jamaican dishes, such as curried goat, jerked meat and pumpkin soup are also available at roadside stands at beach. All lovely, laid-back stretches are well-suited for swimming, snorkeling, biking, hiking, surfing, and of course, the mellow vibes of kicking back in the sun with a cold one in hand.
Dolphin Cove is Jamaicas premier marine attraction. It has all the makings of a great family adventure; offering the excitement of interacting with not only bottlenose dolphins, but stingrays, snakes, iguanas and a host of colourful tropical birds as well. The magnificent Ocho Rios property has a natural cove which is surrounded by 5 acres of lush tropical rain forest. Visitors have the opportunity to interact and swim with dolphins, enjoying the thrill and love of these amazing lovable animals. Visitors can also swim with, hold, feed and learn about the evolutionary secrets of the Caribbean sharks.
Bloody Bay is one of Negrils most picturesque beaches. There is some debate about how the beach claimed its name. Some argue it was the site of a vicious pirate battle, but most believe hunters used to massacre whales there, turning the sea blood-red. Shrouded by this seemingly dark past, Bloody Bay still mystifies and intrigues beachgoers with its beauty. Once a trade secret, this secluded stretch is lined today with a string of all-inclusive properties, including Riu Hotels, Couples Negril and Sunset at the Palms.
