The website oyster.com has published a list of the beaches best avoided when visiting the Caribbean. The region boasts sparkling waters, great weather, and white sands, but for those looking for a relaxing visit to a tropical paradise, the site suggests these seven location be avoided, chiefly because of the crowding and noise associated with resorts and party destination.
Among them in fifth place are Jamaica’s neighboring locations of Cornwall Beach and Doctor’s Cave Beach in Montego Bay. While acknowledging that Jamaica is one of the most-visited nations in the Caribbean, with over 2.08 million tourists heading to Montego Bay in 2015, the beaches are crowded with resorts and restaurants and lots of people who want to party. These beaches were also cited for their relatively small size. Red Strip Beach was also mentioned as one to avoid because of its location near the port, which attracts many cruise passengers.
