Located on Jamaica's north coast between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios and 75 mi/115 km northwest of Kingston, Discovery Bay may be the spot where Columbus first came ashore in 1494 (though nearby St. Ann's Bay is another possibility). Today, Discovery Bay's main point of interest for travelers is Puerto Seco Beach, which is nicely maintained and has changing rooms, restrooms and a snack bar.
Calm waters and a shallow shelf make this protected bay a popular weekend destination for families from as far away as Kingston. The beach is rather narrow, but there are lots of picnic tables shaded by coconut trees—grab one as soon as you arrive, because they go fast. The parking lot is fenced and secured.
The Green Grotto Caves are full of dripstone formations, and a natural river runs inside.
