Jamaica has beaches that people dream about, read about and see photos of in popular travel magazines.  There are white, white sands and glowing blue seas on the shores of this Caribbean island country, and best of all, the beaches are perfectly made for lounging.

If you’ve discovered cheap flights or vacation packages to Jamaica, then you’re in luck.  You get the opportunity that many others are still dreaming about:  the chance to relax on some of the world’s best beaches.

Blue Lagoon – Blue Lagoon is known as Port Antonio’s most beautiful attraction.  This lagoon reaches a depth of nearly 200 feet, is fed by underground mineral springs and produces some of the most amazing colors when mixed with the lush, protective foliage of its surrounds.  The Blue Lagoon is place of serene beauty, which you can enjoy from a nearby villa or beach.

Doctor’s Cave Beach –  Located in picturesque Montego Bay, this pristine beach is home to the Doctor’s Cave Beach Club and is also open to the public for a small fee.  The white sands and clear waters draw in tourists from around the globe, and it is a Jamaican beach that can get quite crowded in the high season.  Luckily, there are plenty of amenities nearby to make it comfortable like changing rooms, restaurants and bars in an area known as the “Hip Strip.”

Seven Mile Beach – The famous Seven Mile Beach is located in Negril on the west coast of the island and features golden sands and glorious waters.  The beach is great for families, although it should be noted that there is a section marked off where nudists can strut their stuff.  It is a great place for lounging, scuba diving, snorkeling and having a nice relaxing rum-based drink or two.

Treasure Beach – A collection of beaches (Great Pedro Bay, Calabash Bay, Frenchman’s Bay, Billy’s Bay and Fort Charles Bay), Treasure Beach is on the less touristy side of the island’s south coast.  Go to Treasure Beach to escape the hustle and bustle of the bigger tourist regions and find yourself immersed in the midst of several sleepy fishing town.

James Bond Beach – The James Bond Beach is located on the north of the island near Ocho Rios.  This beach gets its name from the fact it was inspiration to the 007 author, Ian Fleming, but besides a few Bond-related names, the area is quite subtle with the hype.  James Bond Beach is known for having excellent seafood dishes, great live music and just plain beautiful scenery.
