Why You Should Visit Treasure Beach, Jamaica.

When it comes to Jamaica, many envision the bussy streets of Kingston or the white, dreamy beaches of Negril. But there's a little-known treasure nestled away on the island's south coast, a place that captures the heart and soul of Jamaica in a way that's authentic, welcoming, and unforgettable. It's called Treasure Beach, and it's a destination like no other.

Community Tourism at Its Finest

Treasure Beach is the epitome of community tourism. Here, you won't find towering resorts or impersonal corporate chains. Instead, the heart and soul of this place are its people—locals who have opened their homes, built charming huts and villas, restaurants, cafes, and warmly welcome travellers into their world. The folks here are sweet, calm, and incredibly welcoming, making you feel like family from the moment you arrive.


The beach sunsets here are nothing short of magical, casting a warm glow over the calm waters. As you relax on the shoreline, you might catch a glimpse of dolphins playfully dancing in the waves. Fishermen return with the day's fresh catch, a reminder of the bountiful sea that sustains this community. Bars and restaurants line the coastline, offering Jamaican cuisine and ice cold beer. Early morning walks on the beach worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas.

All the Best of Jamaica, Minus the Crowds

Treasure Beach embodies the essence of Jamaica without the crowds and pushy sellers. Here, you won't find inflated prices in USD. Instead, you'll experience an authentic Jamaican way of life, where the pace is unhurried, and the people are genuine.

What to do in a day in close proximity:

  • Start your day at the wellness center with yoga and a smoothie get somejamaican breakfast if you feel for something heavier.
