It should come as no surprise that Jamaica, one of the hottest vacation islands in the world, features some incredible water activities. This island nation features some amazing swimming locales at which you can easily spend hours. Here are the best places for you to swim in Jamaica:

Doctor’s Cave Beach

When vacationing in Jamaica, you are guaranteed to spend plenty of time hanging out in Montego Bay. Doctor’s Cave Beach can be found in Montego Bay and is a local favorite for swimming. The beach offers gentle waves and a balmy temperature which hovers around 80F. Doctor’s Cave boasts a number of conveniences, including a restaurant and bar, onsite bathrooms, and beach rentals which include chairs, umbrellas and more. A nominal fee of $6 for adults and $3 for children under 12 gets you access to Doctor’s Cave.

Silver Sands

The name of this popular beach comes from the ultra-fine sand found here. Silver Sands also features water that is so clear you can easily see several feet below you. If you are looking for opportunities to explore the ocean floor or to go snorkeling, Silver Sands Beach is a must see.

Boston Bay Beach

If you are looking for an ideal swimming spot that is free of crowds, make sure to choose Boston Bay Beach. Local vendors are often not allowed here, and it is close to many of our vacation rentals in the area. Swimming is best enjoyed on calm days, but more windy days can be great as well. Take the opportunity to try your hand at surfing with a lesson from the local surf shack on the beach. Make sure to stick around after swimming and grab some food, as Boston Bay is where jerk cuisine was started!
