Winnifred Beach, also known as Fairy Hill Beach, is one of Portland’s best-kept secrets located in the Fairy Hill Community at the bottom of a steep hill with a long, unpaved road that leads to the wide, white-sand beach that stretches along a sheltered bay. It is also home to a fantastic reef that is perfect for snorkeling. This beach, like many others in Portland, has streams running into the sea and is good for swimming.
The clear, calm, bright-blue water is quite popular with locals as it is one of the last remaining FREE beaches in Jamaica where you can enjoy food and drink including the specialty of Portland, the JERK. Attractions include a mini-field (perfect for a game of football) and on weekends horseback riding tours down the beach and a boat trip to nearby Monkey Island.
