Doctor's Cave Beach was named for a physician who donated his beach property to form a swim club; the property was once accessible via a cave that was later destroyed by a hurricane. It's a place full of history, not the least because this is the strip of sand that helped put Montego Bay on the international tourist map. The beach is located in the heart of MoBay and maintained by the Doctor's Cave Beach Club, a membership club that charges an admission fee for use of the beach. It's a small price to pay, however, for access to a great beach that's right off Gloucester Avenue with a new clubhouse with changing facilities, the Groovy Grouper beach bar, and other amenities

If you're in Montego Bay and looking for a more sedate beach experience than you'll find downtown, head east to Rose Hall Beach. If you're staying at one of the luxury beachfront resorts here, such as the Iberostar, Half Moon, or the Hilton Rose Hall, then this glorious strip of sand is right outside your doorway. If not, you can access this strand at the Rose Hall Beach Club, which has a restaurant, beach bar, and live entertainment, among other amenities.
