Trip Planner: Caribbean / Jamaica / Saint James Parish / Montego Bay / Doctor's Cave Beach
Experience soft white sands and calm sheltered waters of Doctor's Cave Beach, named so after it was donated to the community by Dr. Alexander James McCatty. The site became even more popular after a respected early 20th-century osteopath commented on the waters supposed rejuvenating qualities. You're able to rent umbrellas and chairs here, however, the trees that line the beach provide some natural shade. Take to the clear water with your snorkeling gear or relax on the sand with cocktail in hand. With our online itinerary creator, Montego Bay attractions like Doctor's Cave Beach can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

Doctor's Cave Beach reviews
One of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Ask the lifeguard to hook you up with goggles/snorkels and a jetski

Nicely maintained beach. About $30 for two people to enter with loungers and an umbrella. Decent toilets and changing facilities. Attentive staff and good food on offer. The water trampolines were fun to use. 8/10 would recommend
Nice beach. Great view. Got shaded places under tree if you are worried to get burnt, plus the rental umbrella, you should be fine. Got all facilities you need and are pretty clean. It would be 5 stars if the stuffs can be nicer. We asked a lady who works there for helping us take a photo for all, however, she just turned around and ignored.
It was very packed on the day we went. Paid on entry then extra for chairs and umbrellas. The landscape as always is incredible and flights to Mo Bay coming in were close to see. No smoking beach. Parked in hotel about 5 mins walk away. Still a nice beach. Bar on site. Cocktail about £10. Found prices in general in this area to be much higher than other areas we had visited on the island.
A bit expensive because one has to pay entry fee on top of chair and umbrella. Friendly staff. The beach is beautiful and very convenient because we were staying right in front of the beach. The beach is clean and the sea is perfect!
This beach has it all! You pay a reasonable entry fee (our hotel gave us free access included with our stay), and have lounger and umbrellas also for rent. There are service people that come around to offer food and drink. It’s very clean, beautiful, serene, and safe. There are plenty of shaded seating areas off the sand, and trees for shade on the sand depending on the time of day.
