My little brother recently came home for Christmas break & one of his few request was to go to the beach. One Sunday evening myself & 2 of my friends honored that request & took him to Boardwalk Beach.
I am not a fan of swimming at the beaches in Hellshire because there is usually too much seaweed for my liking. I usually got to Ocho Rios, Portland or St. James for a beach day but whenever I want good seafood I visit Hellshire Beach (Half Moon Bay), whenever I want to lyme I go to Fort Clarence & whenever I want to relax without a long drive I usually head to Boardwalk Beach.
It is a quaint little spot with thatch gazebos & lots of space for beach games. There is also a bar/restaurant & a DJ. It is also a nice spot for a little “Night Beach” lyme.
It is an affordable spot with an entry fee of only $200 JMD.
The Morant Point Lighthouse built in 1841 is listed by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust as a National Monument. It is the oldest lighthouse in the island. Built of cast iron tube, cast in London it is 100 feet long with a diameter of 5 feet at the base, and 3 feet at the cap. It is located in the most easterly point of the Island. The labour used in erecting the Lighthouse was supplied by kru-men from Africa. They were among the free Africans who were brought to Jamaica.
