Description
If the name conjures up images of therapeutic waters that soothe the weary soul and aching body, forget it. The etymology of this Montego Bay bathing spot, just off the “Hip Strip” is far less ... Read more
mystical. It used to belong to one Dr. Alexander James McCatty, who donated his beachfront property, complete with a half-submerged cave that he and his doctor friends used to swim in, to the public. The cave was destroyed by a hurricane but the beautiful beach, bathing potential, and name remained. A kind of placebo effect took place though, and bathers since the 1920’s have claimed that the perpetually warm waters do have a curative effect.

It has been one of the most famous beaches in Jamaica. It is noted for it's crystal clear turquoise waters and white sand. Its sheltered location provides calm waters

This is lovely white sand beach where you can enjoy lounging or snorkeling. There is a beachfront bar and restaurant to keep everyone refreshed. Chairs and umbrellas are available to rent. The Club is well kept and always makes for a fantastic beach day.

We go here regularly. The beach is nice. Plan to stay in the area the whole day, since this is located on Hip Strip. Do some shopping and visit Margaritaville next door for lunch or drinks.

Doc Caves used to be a Swanky Place, when Montego Bay was The In Place to be seen. Architectually it is probably one of Montego Bay's first Resorts..It is a commercail beach and you pay to get on..Montego Bay it,s self sure has seen alot of changes-for the good It was pretty run down in the 90,s New Areas and some clean up to other Areas makes it brighter. I like Montego Bay to visit. If you like Urban type Settings Close, than you might just find your self sitting on The Beaches at Mo Bay (as it,s called0

They say there's a natural spring that exits through the beach and that the water from this spring could heal the sick... that's how the beach got it's name.

Spend an afternoon here and you'll forget the world and just enjoy the beach. That's what Doctors Cave is about. Relaxing... the kids can run up and down the beach, you can have a drink, catch the sun and have a snack. It's a great place to be and a wonderful time to have.

We have always stayed at Gloucester House or the Doctor's Cave Hotel, across the street. (both are good, old-fashioned hotels) but this beach is the heart and soul of the visitor's MoBay. The sand is silky and white, the ocean is warm and remarkable calm and it's long enough you can usually find a private spot. There are restaurants and hotels on the beach and nearby; it is very casual and laid back. Some of the hotels will bring you drinks form their beach bars. There are nightclubs and dance places, ringing with calypso, Soca and Reggae at night. An International airport (MBJ) makes it easy to get to. Air Jamaica is surprisingly good, often with the best schedules from Miami and New York.
