There are so many places to go in Jamaica but one of my favourite and frequently visited spots is Fort Clarence Beach. Located in St Catherine, Portmore its one of the most popular beach parks in Jamaica.
With a cover charge of less the $500 Jamaican dollars for adult and $100 for kids its a great place for families. Birthdsy parties, weddings, picnics and even your occasional baptism. Yes, Ive actually gone there and seen a baptism.
The beach is clean with a stretch of white sand. There are little spots yiu can can set up camp under a tree or go to a secluded grassy area fir two.For the kids there us enough lawn to olay tag and a swing set that can keep them entertained for hours. No floating devices are allowed in the water, however you can take sand toys for the kids.
Chairs, tables and beach beds can be rented for a deposit of $500 JAM plus the cost of rental which is the same five hundred. Thst shoukd make you more comfortable.
A typical weekend at Fort Clarence is vibrant and fun. On entering the park you will see scores of cars neatly organized in the parking lot to the left and right. The right side of the park us mostly sand and closer to the beach are and mist tines reserve for families with children. You can herr the sound system playing with music from each side of the beach park. Kids playing on the swing, patrons swimming, playing beach football or volley ball, dancing, relaxing and sunbathing.
The best part of Fort Clarence Beach, no its not the blue calm seas, is the enticing aroma of fried fish, roast breadfruit and fried bammy and festival. The fish is awesome, crispy on the outside and soft anf fleshy on the inside. My favorite part is picking the fish which they sell by yhe pound, yes be careful not to eat with your eyes as your pocket may not understand. After you’ve chosen your fish, choose your side and drinks, pay for your order and it will be delivered when its done.
For dessert, no worries, lounge on your beach chair and wait until the sweety lady comes around with her sumptuous Jamaican snacks of gizadda, grater cakes and drops. There also might be cotton candy, shrimp, cheese snacks, peanuts or fruits.
Your weekend for sure can be what you want it to be at Fort Clarence, party like a rockstar, swing the day away, bask in the sun, eat to your hearts content or just sit and chat with a friend. For less than 500 dollars you cant go wrong.
So guys tell me where us yiur favorite beach and whats the best thing about it?
