About these ratings

Doctor's Cave is one of the most visited beaches in Montego Bay. But it does charge an entry fee, which can serve as a deterrent for some. Many, however, are willing to fork over the dollars to enter Doctor's Cave, play in the quiet waves and have ready access to the available water sports, changing rooms and beach bars. The spot's popularity means that you're likely to encounter crowds (especially on days when cruise ships are in Montego Bay's port) and high food prices.

A trip to Doctor's Cave means you'll have the opportunity to rent equipment for snorkeling, kayaking, riding water scooters and other aquatic activities. Umbrellas, towels and beach chairs are also available for rent. And for those who are seeking out the beach for a little surfside retail, "You can shop just outside the entrance ... make sure you bargain because the prices are high," one TripAdvisor reviewer said. 

Admission to the beach costs $6 USD per day (or $3 USD per day for children). Chairs, umbrellas and floats can be rented for an additional $6 per day per item. Doctor's Cave beach is open daily from 8:30 a.m. to sunset.
