Font Hill Beach Park

Font Hill Beach Park (Rte. A2, just past Scott’s Cove, southwest coast) – this is a small but perfectly kept stretch of gold sand beach. It’s rarely visited by tourists but is popular with Jamaicans, particularly at weekends. The turquoise sea has a roped off section for safe swimming which is watched over by lifeguards. Beyond the rope is a reef which is a good spot for snorkeling.

There is a small fee to enter the Fonthill Beach Park (J$350), which covers the cost to use the beach, showers, changing facilities, toilets and gazebo-covered picnic tables. The beach park is owned and run by the Petroleum Company of Jamaica and is part of the Fonthill Wildlife Sanctuary.
