Montego Bay's tourist scene has its roots on the Hip Strip, the bustling entertainment district along Gloucester Avenue. Here, a sea cave whose waters were said to have healing powers drew travelers from around the world. Although the cave was destroyed by a hurricane long ago, the busy beach has a perpetual spring-break feel. The clubhouse has changing rooms, showers, a gift shop, and restaurant. You can rent beach chairs, pool floats, and umbrellas. Its location within the Montego Bay Marine Park—with protected coral reefs and plenty of marine life—makes it good for snorkeling and glass-bottom boat rides. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; parking (fee); showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: partiers; snorkeling; sunset; swimming.
