San San Beach

A couple on San San beach in Portland on Jamaica’s north coast. (1998)

San San is one of the nicer private beaches on the north coast. If you’re looking for a quiet beach with a good bar/restaurant and no people, this is the place. Outside of Negril this mile and a half  beach is one of the nicest white sand beaches in Jamaica. It’s a great place to relax in the sun, enjoy the scenery and the warm Caribbean surf. Laying on the beach you have a perfect view of Monkey island just a few hundred yards off the shore.

We used to be able get access through one of the many villas in the area, also “doing a ting” for the gate-keeper (a ten dollar bill) worked sometimes. Today the beach is open to visitors for a small entrance fee.
