The south coast area consists of the parishes of St. Elizabeth, Manchester and Clarendon. This area is known for their dark sandy beaches, referred to locally as ‘black sand beaches.’ The South Coast is off the beaten path, a true escape into the Jamaican countryside filled with authenticity and emersion into the surrounding community.
This natural paradise of unspoiled beauty and old-world charm boasts areas such as Treasure Beach, a six-mile gem with coral and black-coloured sand that’s home to a genuine fishing village and some vibrant local culture. Venture farther north to YS Falls, a collection of eight cascading waterfalls nestled within limestone cliffs, or to the nearby Appleton Rum Estate Experience, Black River Safari and a host of others. The South Coast is considered by many to be one of Jamaica’s most beautiful natural attractions.
