Surf at Boston Bay Beach

This stunning white-sand stretch, just a five-minute drive east of Port Antonio, is the only beach in Jamaica with waves high enough to surf. Boston Bay is also one of the few remaining public strands on the island. It continues to attract more locals than tourists and as such is nearly vendor-free. You can watch kids splashing about on their boards, or you can rent your own for a Surfing 101 lesson. Be forewarned: As at many beaches, sometimes the waves are flat, but you can console yourself with a short stroll down the beach to the famous Boston Bay jerk chicken stands.

Surf on Boston Bay Beach

A beautiful small cove with golden sand, Boston Bay is the only beach in Jamaica with waves high enough to surf. Not to mention, it’s adjacent to the famous Boston Bay jerk stands that serve up the best jerk cuisine (and jerk sauce) on the island. Can you say ideal location? Grab your quarter chicken or pork to go and walk over to the beach where you can enjoy your meal and try to catch a wave.
