Doctor's Cave Bathing Club: Montego Bay Attractions, Jamaica
The Club got its name because it was used by Dr. McCatty and his friends, who were mainly from the medical profession and, at that time they entered the tiny beach through a cave. The cave however, was destroyed by a hurricane in 1932. The water which is crystal clear has a temperature range, winter and summer from 78 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit, 22 to 28 Celsius.
When you need to cool off while in Montego Bay, this spot is more than just a great beach; it is steeped in history and legend. Donated in the 1900s by a wealthy doctor, the Doctor's Cave legend began in 1920 when an article was published about the healing powers of the water that laps its shores. Sir Herbert Barker, a famous British Osteopath visited the beach and later published an article boosting it by declaring that the waters have curative powers and that he was restored to good health after bathing there. He said the waters could cure several ailments. People flocked here from around the world for its supposed curing powers.
This heightened the allure of the beach and Doctor's Cave became famous overnight as foreigners, many rich and famous came to try the water. Hotels were build in the immediate vicinity and thus began the tourist trade. Today the beach has improved even more, with its wellkept, sandy shoreline and crystal clear water.
Extra amenities make your visit to this beach convenient, from rest rooms, showers and changing areas to a restaurant and cybercafe. Beach chairs and umbrellas are also available for rental. This is a welcome spot for cruise ship visitors who want to relax on one of Jamaica's nicest beach.
