Treasure Beach is a destination and experience!
Casual, easy going, this vacation spot is the perfect destination to "chill out".
No fancy night life (or day life), jet skis, discos or crowds.
Just friendly locals and time to unwind.
Located on the south coast of Jamaica, in the parish of St. Elizabeth, this area receives the least amount of rainfall on the island.
Treasure Beach has been home to generations of farmers and fishermen know for their work ethic.
Although fishing is still the main industry, locals welcome all visitors.
St. Elizabeth is nicknamed "The Breadbasket of Jamaica" and farming is an integral part of daily life in this area.
The Santa Cruz Mountains shelter the dry desert-like landscape and scenic fishing settlements along Frenchman's Bay, Calabash Bay,
Great Bay and Billy Bay which make up the area called Treasure Beach.
Although not a typical "beach destination" there are four public beaches well suited for swimming, snorkeling, and bodysurfing.
Depending on the sea conditions and the season, the waves can vary from six inches to six feet.
The south coast seas tend to be rougher than the north coast.
Fresh fish is abundant (you can watch the fishermen come in with their catch) and is part of the variety
of delicious meals offered at resorts and local eating places.
Do nothing at all ...or enjoy many local excursions (see things to do) and at night there are a few local bars and restaurants with music, dancing,
billiards or dominoes.
