 On the road south of Portmore towards Hellshire Hills, turn left at the second roundabout.

There are several beaches in the Hellshire area of St. Catherine, the biggest and busiest being Fisherman's Beach. When you hear Jamaicans talking about "Hellshire Beach" they will almost certainly be referring to Fisherman's beach.

Hellshire gets very busy at weekends with sunbathers and water-lovers from nearby Kingston and Portmore. Hellshire does not draw many tourists. In recent years, many of the up-town Kingstonians and ex-pats have abandoned Hellshire in favour of Lime Cay. However, the beach still draws a good crowd and has a more authentic Jamaican atmosphere.

The attractions of the beach are the warm Caribbean sea, inner-tubes for hire, jet-ski rides, donkey rides and loud reggae music.

Fish restaurants

What sets Hellshire apart from the other beaches in Jamaica is the quality and choice of seafood. Ask any Jamaican where to go for the best sea food in Jamaica and 9 out of 10 will tell you to come to Hellshire!

Prendy's Restaurant, Hellshire Beach, St. Catherine Parish The beach is lined with thatched-roof restaurants offering a choice of fresh fish and lobster, fried of steamed to your liking, served with vegetables, bammy and festival. In terms of food quality there are no bad restaurants in Hellshire and all charge reasonable prices. However, occasionally tourists have reported being surprised by a hefty bill at the end of the meal. If you check the price of your meal before ordering (or, even better, pay when you order) then you can avoid this happening to you.
