First, a little history...
It began in 1906 when Dr. Alexander James McCatty generously donated his beach property to found a bathing club in Montego Bay. The Club got its name because it was used by Dr. McCatty and his friends, who were mainly from the medical profession and, at that time they entered the tiny beach through a cave. The cave however, was destroyed by a hurricane in 1932. The water which is crystal clear has a temperature range, winter and summer from 78 to 84 degrees Fahrenheit, 22 to 28 Celcius.
In the end of early 1920's, Sir Herbert Barker, a famous British Osteopath visited the beach and later published an article boosting it by declaring that the waters have curative powers and that he was restored to good health after bathing there. He said the waters could cure several ailments. This heightened the allure of the beach and Doctor's Cave became famous overnight as foreigners, many rich and famous came to try the water. Hotels were build in the immediate vicinity and thus began the tourist trade.
We are a lot more than just a great beach. We are located in the middle of Montego Bay's "Hip Strip" Gloucester Avenue.
Doctor's Cave is the most beautiful beach I have ever stepped on! Its my paradise! Great opportunities to snorkel or just spend the day relaxing. There are lifeguards on duty to make everything super safe for you. Highly recommended!
If you're looking for a white sand beach in Montego Bay with crystal clear water then this is the place for you! We stayed at a resort close by and spent most of our time at this beach. Ensure you stop by!
The beach is very nice and the entry fee is very reasonable. Large groups always enjoy themselves whether it's relaxing under an umbrella or taking a swim. There's also a good restaurant and bar on property that you'll enjoy.
