Day 148 of 365 Things to Do, See & Eat in Jamaica – Visit Columbus’ First Landing Spot at Puerto Seco Beach

Puerto Seco
Written by Staff Writer

Puerto Seco Beach is located in Discovery Bay, Jamaica. When Christopher Columbus first came to the island he landed here in search of fresh water. When he did not find any he named the beach “Puerto Seco,” which translates to “dry port.” Now the beach is far from dry; it is filled with music and life. Vendors sell patties and other authentic Jamaican cuisine to beachgoers. Visitors can cool down by snorkeling and swimming in the water. Jet ski, sea bike, and fishing boat rentals are also available. Families visiting the beach should check out the water slides for children. After spending a day in the sun, dine in one of the many rustic restaurants and bars located along the beach.

In case you missed any of the past “365 Things to Do, See and Eat in Jamaica“, here they are all together.
