The grounds at the cove spread about 42 acres with villas throughout. However, the actual beach is relatively small. This is not a problem because this beach is rarely crowded. What makes this beach so unique is the amazing river that meets the ocean. The sand is soft and white and the water is crystal clear. You can choose to swim in the very calm river or the ocean. Frenchman’s Cove beach is one of the most beautiful in Jamaica. Nestled at the outlet of a fresh-water stream, the beach’s white sand and turquoise waters have attracted visitors to Jamaica for decades. Luxuriate under a shade tree, take in the amazing view, cool off in the gentle surf, or go exploring up the river. Does the beach look familiar? It should: you’ve seen it as a film set in popular movies such as Knight and Day, with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz.
