Going Jamaica This Summer?

Go Grande Beach For A Frolicking Time

Over the years Jamaica has lost many of its public beaches to private enterprises. However, one of the few beaches currently opened to the public is Grande Beach.

The beach is located about a stone throw away from the town of Ochi Rios — one of Jamaica’s most popular resort towns.
