World Famous Private Beach in Frenchman’s Cove, Port Antonio, Jamaica.
During the 1960’s, Port Antonio became the mecca of the jet set. Billionaire Garfield Weston (whose empire included Fortnum and Mason and Selfridges in London) built a sumptuous hotel, rumoured to be the most expensive in the world. It was comprised of 18 luxury villas shrouded by discreet shrubbery and scattered over the headlands on both sides of the river, beach and bay.
This is a beautiful beach where the river flows right into the ocean. There are swings all along the river bank that look just like a postcard. The beach really is gorgeous, there are all amenities on site, a small restaurant as well and wild mango threes around the place.
Access to the private beach at Frenchman’s Cove can be accessed for a small fee of $10 per day.
