What an absolutely beautiful beach! One or two people asking you to buy things but nothing like Seven Mile, for example. The only downside--and it's a real shame--is that when you cross the rocks to the other side of the beach it's marred by so much litter. With secure parking and access at a reasonable price (JA$200/person), I'm really glad... More

This beach is unique due to the physics of waves and cliffs. The waves actually increase as they enter the mouth of the bay. This small beach is an active surfer's joy. The waves are great for all types of surfing. The area is safe, with great food options, and secured parking. The small cost to use the beach is... More

Nice place, clean but sea rough. My memories of this place will always be one to keep. This beach is also right next to Boston's finest jerk spot. So you have alot to try.

We stayed right next to Boston Beach at the Great Huts resort. There is either a private access to the Boston Bay from within Great Huts or you can just walk around and enter the beach from the road. On windy days, you can see some local surfers and the crashing waves do provide for some nice pictures. There are... More

Friendly people, best view in Portland, surf lessons, and amazing smoothies in Boston jerk center that are good price. I really recommend the smoothie shop right by great Huts, made to order smoothies for 300J I always make this place a stop. There's always fresh fruit like papaya, watermelon, mangoes. Let's just say the beach wouldn't be complete without a... More

This was a small beach - some natural debris by the edge of the water and quite wavy, so was not tempted to swim. Was fun to watch the surfers. Being one of few groups of tourists, we were hassled quite badly by vendors. Was not able to relax as much as one would hope on a beach! Got fish,... More

The black is a small local beach you won't miss much if you skip it. Boston is also the home of Jerk and they are dotted on the main road. They will have guys on the street trying to get you to come to thier Jerk Hut generally they will have Jerk chicken, pork, lobster and some root veg. Just... More

We particularly enjoyed this beach for it usually displays a down-to-earth combination of foreign tourists and Jamaicans, with no pretensions of any sort. The music is LOUD, but if you like reggae in all its forms you won't be disappointed. Beware with the Jerk Chicken seller there: prices vary greatly according to the way you are able to impose yourself... More
