Jamaica_ Ocho Rios in St. Ann Parish_ Part I

Updated: Aug 10, 2019

Kaz Kreol Beach. It's a private beach through a resort style setting. Entrance fee is $500 JMD or $5 USD. It is, however adjacent to White River. There you can find a secret path of entry for locals and the brave....

When facing the ocean, to the far right is an adult only resort. A little closer, in the distance, where the man stands, that is where White River meets the Caribbean Sea. There you will find friendly fishermen and rafters, who will take you on a tour of White River for a nominal fee. It may be the most gorgeous romantic river on the island. Worth the fare.

A little further away.

Jamaica has so many gorgeous beaches and I'm always up for visiting one.

Facing left, is tanning heaven..

La Plage

Behind the bar. This is a hotel beach and many only allow hotel guests. However, this beach allows for paid entrance, veggie options, and killer sunsets!!


Lots of cruise ships to be found in Ocho Rios, because there is a stop over here. Find lots more recurring cruise ship photos here.

Watching the sunset...

I had a blast frolicking in the water. It is so cool and nice. When I was called a mermaid, my rebuttal was "I'm a water nymph." ;)

While in Ocho Rios, I stayed in a big house on a hill, with killer views. Check back for those photos soon. Kaz Kreol Beach is at the bottom of the hill and this brook/spring is further at the top. I went with two German housemates to revisit Blue Hole, but decided against it because the unofficial tour guides at the entrance were a bit aggressive this time around. Instead we stumbled upon this place and it was a nice quiet free site for a photo op.

Gorgeous nature. This runs into the Blue Hole, which is a must visit when in Ocho Rios. I had gone on my previous trip, with a more trustworthy companion and experienced the entire magnificence of the place. There is an extra special hidden surprise at the very top and no one else was there when we went.
