Three of Jamaica’s beaches to Open

Walter Fletcher Beach

The public is invited to visit any of the three UDC-owned beaches which reopened on Sunday 14 June 2020. Long Bay, Negril, Walter Fletcher, Montego Bay and Ocho Rios Bay Beach, Ocho Rios will accept visitors for the first time since closing March.
