Winnifred Beach, Portland  

Winnifred Beach, Portland Winnifred Beach - Portland, between the Blue Lagoon and Boston Bay

Come to Winnifred Beach for a real authentic Jamaican public beach experience. Some say that you are not a Jamaican until you have visited Winnifred Beach!

Visit on the weekend to join Jamaicans swimming, playing cricket or just relaxing on the beach. Weekdays are quieter and you may even have the whole beach to yourself. The sea is good for swimming and a coral reef gives snorkeling opportunities. There is also a public changing room and toilet.

The beach is dotted with vendors huts selling food, drinks, carvings and jewellery. When we visited we met Yvonne who was busy making jewellery, Blacks selling stewed chicken and I-Cliff carving callabash bowls. At the far end of the beach sits Cynthia and Painters restaurant which is highly regarded in the area.

Getting to Winnifred Beach

Getting to Winnifred Beach is half the fun! You need to follow a narrow lane which leads off from the main road, halfway between the Blue Lagoon and Boston Bay. The lane is unmarked and is not near any landmarks, it starts off uneven and gets steadily worse until you reach the beach. It is, however, possible to reach the beach without a 4 wheel drive vehicle. The best way to find your way down is to ask locals which road to take then follow it all the way down to the beach.
