what are the beaches like in Jamaica?
Posted 15 December 2008 - 08:39 PM
I'm assuming the beaches in Jamaica are awesome but I wanted to double check rather than assume, and also ask for recommendations for the best beaches.
I'm looking for clear water and an ocean that looks beautifully deep blue.
Any info / advice you ladies can give me would be greatly appreciate. I've just started researching resorts and I'm more or less making my resort choice based on price and location. Some of the obvious places that are coming up are Montego Bay, Ocho Rios and Negril. Also what about Rio Bueno or Runaway Bay?

A little seaweed flotting around the top (brought in from further out) or growing in the ground?
Also to add, I don't know if any of you have been to Punta Cana, but I thought the beach there was amazing, so clean and so blue, I don't know if anyone can compare Negril or others to that for me. Don't want to get my hopes up too high expecting it to be the same.

The sand is soft and white and powdery. The water is clear and there are some out lying reefs if you want to snorkel or scuba.
A few miles down are the cliffs and caves if you want to go diving. I think most of the resorts have free cruises so you can see them, CSA did. I felt like we had the best of both.
Since you are going as a honeymoon I would look for an adult only property.
If you have specific questions, PM TA Jennifer. I think she has been to every resort on the island! You can check out the Sandals/Couples thread for her site reviews. They are very detailed and she has included lots of pictures. I know I was really excited to find them when I was planning.
