Treasure Beach Mandeville, Mandeville Attractions, Jamaica

Treasure Beach

Treasure Beach Jamaica is wonderful honeymoon location. It's about a 2 hour ride from the airport, and some may enjoy the ride, seeing the way different people live, but it is a zigzag road through the mountains which might not appeal to some people.

If you plan to stay for a few days (and it's not a very bustling or touristy place, so 4 or 5 days there is probably plenty), check out Jakes Resort. It's a little higher budget, but it is easy to book, and very relaxing, especially if you don't plan on doing a whole lot (for example, on a honeymoon). While you are there, though, talk to Dennis about going out to Pelican Bar and ask him to take you on a day trip to a private beach and cook some fish for you.

The Treasure Beach area, on the southwest coast of Jamaica, is quickly becoming a popular destination among off the beaten path aficionados. Treasure Beach lies between the Black River and the alligator pond. The lack of the mass tourism development that has transformed the other tourist destinations in the island, makes of this area one of the most isolated ones in the Caribbean.

The area is quite drier than the north coast. Rain is a very strange phenomenon. This affects the landscape, less green than on the rest of the island.

If you come with me, I will try to show you some beautiful sights in this remote destination. I will also take you on a Photographic Tour of the Black River, where we will see the crocodiles that inhabit it. On the way to the Black River we will stop in the middle of the sea, where if we are lucky, we will swim with wild dolphins.

Treasure Beach is a gem for travelers in search of the offbeat. You'd find a more authentically charming and relaxing place in Jamaica.

Treasure Beach is the generic name given to four coves – Billy's Bay, Frenchmans's Bay, Calabash Bay, and Great Pedro Bay – that stretch for several miles south of Starve Gut Bay. Their rocky headlands separate lonesome coral–colored sand beaches. The long palm–backed curve of Treasure Beach is the node.

The area remains largely un-touristed. The sense of remoteness, easy pace and graciousness of the locals (mostly farmers and fisher folk) attract small handfuls of foreign travelers seeking an away–from–it–all, cares–to–the–wind lifestyle. Many have settled – much to local pride. To think that someone would leave behind the USA or Europe to live in their remote little place! More about Treasure Beach.

Treasure Beach is remote, untouched by human hands and the local folks would like it to remain so. Only the privilege few have experienced the serenity and laid back life in on the South Coast. Those who have visited have much to tell with glee the sheer pleasure of idling the days away in hammock under shaded tree, feeling the sand as it caress your feet and enjoying the heavenly scent of calm sea breeze.

In the only thing to do at nights is to hang out with the residents at the local bar or listen to pulsing reggae music in a dimly lit room shielding the privacy of young lovers. This is peace that Treasure Beach has to offer.

The Treasure Beach area offers varied accommodation to any traveler and even though its a long drive from Montego Bay or Kingston, the ride is well worth the effort. With good roads, getting to Treasure Beach is now much easier. It is no surprise that Treasure Beach is fast becoming a new destination for returning visitors to the island.

The nearest local attraction is in Black River, St. Elizabeth – The Black River Tour. Go in search of crocodiles! If the opportunity allows to get the chance of seeing one up close and maybe to feed it! Boats can be chartered from tour companies along the river or even book your seat with a local fisherman.
