The natural water is somewhere clean and also there are professionals at all beaches that are ready to help you.

One of the popular beaches at Montego Bay is Doctor’s Cave Beach. The beach was founded in 1906 that is situated between the Marine Park and Hip Strip. The transparent water acclaims to have minerals. Therefore, this beach is clean and alluring with the white-sand alongside and looks serene.

If you are a really party goer, then Montego Bay is the best destination for you. It has the lively nightlife with the peaceful sea. On your way to the seaside, you will come across several markets of handicrafts in the open-air Harbour Street market and the “hip strip” shops in the Gloucester Avenue. You might be wondering what is “hip strip” or why is that place called as the hip strip? Well, the nightlife is there with bars, clubs, and restaurants. It is one of the busiest areas where people are moving and running into each other. The music is louder than the sea waves. You always get a chance to enjoy free-flowing drinks with some good rock music. Montego Bay is a second home for the party animals who want to sing and dance all night.

Montego Bay is considered to be the two-faced place. One face is the face of peace and calmness. It is covered with the glossy brochures that tell you about its activities on the beaches. But no one would really like to see the second face – considered as the busiest city. The second face becomes noisy with car horns and all that thought about peace and calm face just disappears from your mind. The Hip Strip in Gloucester Avenue parts the two faced Montego Bay into two halves. It is considered as a divider between peace and noisy place.
