Jamaica’s Most Beautiful Beaches

San San Beach – Visitors will find this stretch of  sand on Jamaica’s eastern coast provides approximately 1.5 miles of pure  white sand. The calm shallow waters make it suitable for swimming and  children. San San Beach is great for vacationers who want to relax and  enjoy the beauty of a less crowed beach, but keep in mind that you won’t  find the amenities of some of the more popular beaches. Small reefs  just off the coast make this a perfect area for snorkeling.

Boston Beach – is about a 10 minute ride east of  Port Antonio. Boston Beach is beautiful cove and worth the short drive.    Here you will find white sandy beaches, crystal blue waters, and  amazing tropical foliage. This is where Jamaican’s go to get world  famous Jerk seasoning so make sure you visit a nearby jerk pits for your  lunch.

WHEN TO TRAVEL

The average temperatures in Jamaica are much like that of most of the  Caribbean, Jamaica’s with average temperatures hovering around 85.  The  hottest months are in July and August where warm days can reach into  the 90’s.  The island is at it coolest in the months in January and  February and temperatures have been known to dip into the high 70.s. and  even cooler in the higher altitudes. Wearing a jacket in the evenings  have not been unheard of for this time of year.  

So if you plan to  travel during these months, it might be a good idea to have one handy  just in case.  Jamaica’s rainiest seasons are in the months of May and  June, and then again in October and November, but even during these  months rain showers and storms pass quickly allowing the once again to  shine. However, rainfall can very significantly from one side of the  island to the other. The eastern side of the island known as the  windward coast will receive substantially more rain than the  southwestern coast of Jamaica and almost appears barren in contrast to  the eastern side of the island. For the most part when it does rain in  Jamaica, showers are short, heavy and followed by sunshine.
