About Hellshire Beach
Hellshire Beach is the largest and most popular of a series of narrow beaches located along the southern coast of Jamaica. The major characteristics of this beach are its black sands and cool, clean waters. It is just a little over five miles from Fort Charles and close to Portmore, making a day trip to explore the town a definite possibility. Hellshire Beach is the home of legendary entertainments, including beauty contests, reggae concerts and other activities that contribute to the large crowds gathering there on weekends.
The beach attracts many local visitors who come to enjoy Jamaican cuisine cooked by vendors in stands along the shore. The crowds are especially large on weekends, as Hellshire Beach is a major location for Jamaicans who visit on their days of leisure.
Hellshire Beach is also close to some of Jamaica's scenic natural attractions, including the Royal Botanic Gardens, which are about fourteen miles northeast of the beach. Historical sites providing a glimpse into island history are close by as well, including Fort Charles, a little over five miles northeast of Hellshire Beach. Other nearby attractions that are worth a visit include Georgian Antique Square (8.2 miles NW for shopping, the National Gallery of Art (8.6 miles NE), Gordon House historical site (9.6 miles NE), the Tourist Board (10.7 miles NE), Devon House (11.3 miles NE) historical site, National Stadium (11.4 miles NE), the Bob Marley Museum (11.9 miles NE), and the historical sites of Mona Great House (12.5 miles NE) and Hope Great House (13.6 miles NE).
Dining choices for visitors include the Jamaican fare available at stands along the shore from local vendors, picnic lunches prepared by many hotels for their guests, or for those willing to travel a short distance, the French cuisine features at the Blue Mountain Inn, 15.3 miles to the northeast of Hellshire Beach.
Fort Clarence Beach is an excellent place to meet and hang out with ordinary Jamaicans. Named for the fort, which once stood as part of the ring of forts and batteries that protected Kingston Harbour from potential invaders, Fort Clarence Beach is the premier beach accessible to residents of Kingston and Portmore, and a popular venue for Reggae and Dancehall concerts. Farther along the coast, the fishing beach at Hellshire has become one of the most popular bathing beaches on the South Coast because of the spirit of community and the generally mellow vibe of the beach. Spend a day there and you will see fishing boats coming ashore intermittently, intercepted on the beach by hagglers who either cook on the beach or take the fish to be sold inland.
The fishmongers on the beach here first created "festival", a sort of sweet bread usually served with fish, or so they claim. The seemingly simple recipe is often imitated, but rarely duplicated successfully. Kingstonians have many theories about this - some claim that a sprinkling of sand is the secret ingredient; others claim that a dash of seawater mixed into the batter is the trick. Either way, it is a tasty and filling complement to a meal of fresh escoviched fish that is practically synonymous with Hellshire.
The Hellshire Hills are one of the last remaining habitats of the iguana, a large reptile that once roamed the entire island. Take a short hike to meet one of these colourful and stately creatures, but do not attempt to catch or even touch one - the iguana is a protected species under Jamaican law.
