Skip Doctor's Cave and Find Cornwall
Just next door to the most popular beach in Montego Bay—the crowded, tourist-favorite Doctor’s Cave—is a quiet and spacious stretch known as Cornwall Beach. You won’t see more than a couple of people at a time during the weekdays, while late afternoons and weekends attract a few locals who come here to relax and enjoy the on site restaurant and bar. There’s a small entry fee, under US$5, well worth the on site facilities, including lounge chairs and snorkel gear. Cornwall Beach occasionally hosts a sunset beach party on Sunday afternoons, with a “bottomless” Appleton mug option (that is, all-you-can-drink rum all night).
