“Boston Bay: Jamaica’s Premiere Surfing Spot”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

Come on, yu done know Jamaica has it all…beautiful beaches, rum, women…lol, alright mek mi behave myself. As I was saying, if it’s surfing you want to make you feel irie while frolicking in Jam Rock, then Boston Beach is the best spot for that. Boston Bay is just down the road from Great Huts and Boston Jerk, and it’s where locals hang out to watch surfers catch a wave. A small, laid-back, and happening community tucked away in lush Portland. See more at: http://wondersofjamaica.com/2011/11/16/boston-bay-jamaicas-premiere-surfing-spot/

“Great Surfing”
Reviewed 21 March 2012

Expect $10 - $15 to rent a beat-up by decent condition surfboard. Nice spot, good break on the left hand side of bay. You will get hassled some, but worth the trip. Don't eat at the shacks unless you negotiate prices first. We got ripped off pretty good.

“Rocky”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

Lots of waves for surfing, but almost impossible to get to from Great Huts. Rocky bottom with debris. People hasseling you on the beach. Best for surfing, not swimming

“fun public beach”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

Jamaicans hang out here, which makes it more fun in a way than Frenchman's cove. You'll be hassled by lots of people selling you stuff on the way in, but we went all the way to the far side and barely anyone came over after that. The waves were decent, which made for some fun surfer-watching. There was some undertow and current pulling you towards the rocks, but the lifeguard said that's only because we went to the far side. I loved this beach!
