Doctors Cave Beach -

Energetic, stunning and exciting, Montego Bay on Jamaica’s north coast embodies a spirit that invites us all to come out and play.

A definite favorite among travelers in search of a good time, the second city is a great place to have your fill of relaxation and revelry.

World famous white sands and crystal clear waters fed by a mineral spring combine at the beautiful Doctor’s Cave Beach in Montego Bay.

It was founded in 1906 nestled between the Marine Park and the Hip Strip when Dr. Alexander James McCatty generously donated his beach property.

Dr. McCatty and his friends were mainly from the medical profession and, at that time, they entered the tiny beach through a cave, hence how the name was born.

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.

The translucent water is known for its mineral content and its golden sands and turquoise water provide the perfect place to enjoy the tranquil warmth of the Caribbean Sea. Visitors can even watch brightly colored tropical fish swimming close to the surface.
