It is a nice cove with fine sand but it is quite small so it gets crowded easily. The entry fee is 10 USD. There is a small restaurant (ok food and reasonably priced). There is quite a strong current in the sea

This place is truly beautiful and a must see for your self. The only downside is the 10$ fee per person to enter the beach. I would personally Pay 1,000 in JM currency.

Beach where the ocean and stream meet. Lovely place to unwind. Photograpehrs dream. Many focal points of beauty. Swings and ropes over the water. You can literally float from the stream to the ocean, like your own personal body ride. This is now my favorite...More

The entry for my family was included with my stay at Wilks Bay, walking distance from Frenchman’s cove. So, no charges.

We showed up. We stayed at Goblin Hill and drove over to Frenchman's Cove. As I mentioned in my review, you must pay $10/person. Which we did, but only stayed about 5-10 minutes. Overall we found the people operating... More
