What To Do In and Near Treasure Beach

In addition to sunning, swimming and snorkeling, our guests enjoy mingling with the residents, walking, hiking, bicycling, fishing, and sampling local bars and restaurants. Here are some of the area attractions that are the most popular with our guests—and provide some of the very best photo opportunities.

Floyd's Pelican Bar

Floyd’s Pelican Bar

Floyd’s Pelican Bar is an amazing place, constructed by Floyd Forbes from a vision he had in a dream. As it’s built on stilts about a mile off the coast in the Caribbean Sea, you’ll boat here from Treasure Beach and spend as much time as you’d like enjoying a fresh fish meal, having a cool drink, and relaxing. You can also wander around the outside of Floyd’s, searching for shells.

Black River Tour

Black River Tour

You can leave directly from Treasure Beach and go up the longest river in Jamaica. You’ll see crocodiles, water hyacinths, and go through gorgeous mangroves. Your boat captain can direct you to a safe place to swim (beyond the crocs), or stop for a cool drink and lunch. Or, he can stop at Floyd’s on the way back to Treasure Beach.

Appleton Rum Factory

Appleton Rum Factory

Appleton Rum Factory

This is the oldest and most famous of all of Jamaica’s sugar estates, and was an established rum producing sugar plantation by 1749; Appleton has been in continuous production for more than 250 years. You’ll be able to tour the factory to see how they process rum—and be able to sample from a host of different rums and rum-based liquors.

YS Falls

YS Falls

YS Falls

To us, these are the most exquisite falls in Jamaica. And, unlike Dunn’s River Falls on the north coast, the number of visitors is kept low to assure your enjoyment. You can venture into the cascading falls, swim in a pool, and picnic; there’s also a small restaurant on the grounds. The more adventurous will be thrilled with an exhilarating zip line ride, gliding from the top of the seven falls to the base. In conjunction with a tour of the Appleton Rum Factory, a trip to YS Falls makes for a full, wonderful day.

Lover’s Leap

Lover’s Leap

Legend says that two slave lovers jumped from here to prevent being separated. Today, there is a restaurant and a small museum on the premises; plus, you can enjoy panoramic views of the entire coastline from the 1,700-foot cliff.

Little Ochi's

This on-the-beach restaurant is a true Jamaican experience. You select exactly the fish, lobster, crab, or conch you want—and tell their cooks how you’d like it prepared. Delicious!
