The perfect soundtrack to the atmosphere of Treasure Beach – Rudy, A Message to You by Dandy Livingstone
This is one beach that really exemplifies that authentic, laid-back Jamaican lifestyle we so love. Slightly off the beaten track on the South Western coast of Jamaica, Treasure Beach is home to four quintessentially Caribbean coves – Billy’s Bay, Frenchman’s Bay, Calabash Bay and Great Pedro Bay –each with its own distinct charm. Fishermen wave from stripy boats, cricketers cheer from the lawn and locals watch on from beach huts fringing the sands. It sounds a little too idyllic, but this is a part of Jamaica which truly tells the story of local life.
What you’ll do
Ripe with creativity and crafts, you will find yourself strolling passed stalls overflowing with beautiful handmade gifts, contemporary art and pieces of unique poetry. Lose yourself in a novel, or take the weight off your feet at Jack Sprat’s bar, which serves up seriously good rum punch to DJ music. There is also a load of very tasty food at Treasure Beach, from simple stone baked pizza topped with freshly caught lobster, to organic sunset dinners on a local farm.
Why we like it
A beach adorned in locally made crafts, and a community welcoming you with open arms… what’s not to like? But we should probably also mention that Treasure Beach is home to the famous Pelican Bar; just 20 minutes from the shore and you’ll find yourself washed up in an idyllic bar on water. There’s few places better to sip on a cold cocktail, than in midst of the Caribbean Sea with paradise on the Horizon. Watch freshly caught seafood cook on the open BBQ as you dip your toes in the warm waters. No wonder it’s famed as one of the greatest bars in the world.
