The Basics

You can experience Doctor’s Cave Beach as part of a private or group half-day, full-day, or multi-day tour, some of which include sightseeing, shopping, a meal along the Hip Strip, or even a scuba diving excursion. The welcoming beach accommodates all travelers, from relaxing sunbathers to active adventurers. Zoom around on a Jet Ski, take flight on a parasail, cruise in a glass-bottom boat, swim in the warm turquoise water, or simply laze about on the sandy beach with a pina colada in hand. An on-site rental center offers umbrellas, beach chairs, and snorkel gear. When you’re feeling hungry, take a few steps to the beachside Sand Restaurant and Bar.

Doctor's Cave Beach and Jimmy Buffet's margaritaville with shopping
I am glad we did this. You could do it own your own but the convenience of having the driver there to take care of everything was awesome. Tyrone was absolutely amazing. He taught us about Jamaica while in the car with us and was very accommodating to our plans. If all drivers are like him then it is a definite do.

This was a great beach, basically the tour guide will pay the entrance & u get to Rome around freely, be sure to save your receipt to get back in the beach if you leave. Food & drinks are great reasonable prices.

Doctor's Cave Beach, Margaritaville & Shopping from Montego Bay Hotels
We could have done without visiting the Beach -- our resort was on a private beach so that was an unnecessary part for us. It's always cool to hang out at Margaritaville but it was a little too early for us and we were the only ones there -- well until one of the boats arrived with a lot of youngsters. I liked the hip strip but our driver suggested one place in particular so we pretty much shopped there.

The Story Behind the Name

Though the cave no longer exists—a hurricane washed it away in 1932—the legend of the doctor remains. In the 1920s, noted British osteopath Sir Herbert Barker was so inspired by the curative powers of the waters here that he published a paper claiming that they restored him to good health and hold the potential to cure several ailments.
