Try to visit on weekend days for a real feel of local beach life. Jamaican music, drinks (rum or red stripe) combined with some jerk chicken or pork. (Buy at CeeLee's, really the best) makes your day

We drove into the little park at Boston Beach and decided to give it a shot, in spite of the admission fee. It turned out that the jerk chicken and pork were more expensive than we had paid elsewhere (where there was no admission fee)....More

I wasn't aware of a contact number for the beach itself or for the Jerk Centres there! You just pay to go onto the beach and order food when you're there.
