Doctor's Cave Beach
Set along Montego Bay’s famous Hip Strip stretch along Gloucester Avenue, Doctor’s Cave Beach is one of the most popular beaches on Jamaica’s west coast. A jumping-off point to the pristine 15-acre (6-hectare) Montego Bay Marine Park, the beach offers easy and direct access to fun water-based activities.

The Basics
You can experience Doctor’s Cave Beach as part of a private or group half-day, full-day, or multi-day tour, some of which include sightseeing, shopping, a meal along the Hip Strip, or even a scuba diving excursion. The welcoming beach accommodates all travelers, from relaxing sunbathers to active adventurers. Zoom around on a Jet Ski, take flight on a parasail, cruise in a glass-bottom boat, swim in the warm turquoise water, or simply laze about on the sandy beach with a pina colada in hand. An on-site rental center offers umbrellas, beach chairs, and snorkel gear. When you’re feeling hungry, take a few steps to the beachside Sand Restaurant and Bar.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Doctor’s Cave Beach is perfect for solo travelers, couples, and families.
  • Admission includes access to some of the best reef snorkeling on the west coast. Rent gear or bring your own. 
  • Remember to bring sun protection.

How to Get There
Doctor’s Cave Beach is located on Gloucester Avenue, along the stretch known as the Hip Strip. It’s about a 5-minute drive north of the center of Montego Bay.

When to Get There
The beach and its facilities are open daily from 8:30am to 5:30pm. Generally the peak times—and crowds—are mornings and afternoons during the high-season winter months. Arrive early to rent a small hut, as they go fast.

The Story Behind the Name
Though the cave no longer exists—a hurricane washed it away in 1932—the legend of the doctor remains. In the 1920s, noted British osteopath Sir Herbert Barker was so inspired by the curative powers of the waters here that he published a paper claiming that they restored him to good health and hold the potential to cure several ailments.
