TREASURE BEACH (SOUTH COAST)

This sleepy community of fishermen and farmers is like no other place in Jamaica, having a fruitful but desert-like environment and a six-mile stretch of black and coral-colored beaches called Frenchman’s Bay that is the heart of the Treasure Beach area. There are few big exclusive chain-resorts here – just small intimate communities with comfortable guesthouses, scenic ocean views and lots of fresh produce!

YS Falls is a South Coast attraction rated by many as being the best waterfall in Jamaica, actually featuring seven waterfalls that cascade into natural pools that are ideal for swimming!

St. Elizabeth, Treasure Beach and the entire South Coast are famous for their roadside peppered shrimp vendors at Middle Quarters and you can enjoy Curried Lobster at Little Ochie!

Indulge yourself in a sampling tour of the Appleton Sugar Estate Rum Factory, the largest and oldest distillery in Jamaica, visit the cool, lush Nassau Valley and meet the people who make the world’s finest rum.

The capital town of St. Elizabeth parish is Black River, with other major points of interest in the region being the Black River Safari, Pelican Bar, Milk River Bath & Spa, and Lovers’ Leap – the highest lighthouse in the Western Hemisphere being located at the top of a spectacular vertical cliff!

For Bird Watching, the Black River Great Morass is an Important Bird Area boasting the island’s largest freshwater wetland.

Consisting of low marshland with limestone islands, the Black River Great Morass is a significant breeding ground for the vulnerable West Indian Whistling-Duck, the Near Threatened Caribbean Coot and White-crowned Pigeons.

Destination Profile
& Tourism Highlights

The South Coast’s Treasure Beach is paradise awaiting “Off the Beaten Track”, with community based tourism offering sustainable opportunities to experience Authentic Jamaica and travel responsibly by supporting local business, buying local food, taking local transportation and local tours.

The parish of St. Elizabeth with its flatlands and red-colored soil is well known for farming, and is called the “Bread Basket of Jamaica” due to its status as the island’s leading producer of many fruits, vegetables and livestock.

Home to over 150,000 residents and Jamaica’s second largest parish, St. Elizabeth is also a major producer of bauxite with two sugar factories in the parish.

The Great Morass also supports populations of 15 of Jamaica’s 36 total endemic restricted range bird species, in addition to large numbers of Pied-billed Grebes, gulls and terns are found on the Treasure Beach coast.

The Black River Great Morass is divided into a lower morass and upper morass with freshwater wetland with many tributaries and streams, shallow ponds and a dyke system. The area was once used for rice farming but currently contains a commercial fish farm (tilapia), which is a major attraction to birds.

TOURIST REST, ASSISTANCE & CONVENIENCE (T.R.A.C.) CENTERS

Rasta Routes Walk Good T.R.A.C. Centers can be described as a combination Scenic Reststop & “Safe House” for Jamaican Backpacker Tourists and as RELIEF for their Parents and Friends back at home!

Each Walk Good T.R.A.C. Center is Uniquely Hosted and Operated by well-established, respected Businesses and Community Leaders in the Rasta Routes Walk Good Tourist Support Network (TSN), located in several Jamaican Cities, Towns and Districts.

Each T.R.A.C. Center has it's own available resources and limitations, however all operate with the primary goal of helping stranded Tourists safely along their Irie way AND leaving Visitors with a Lasting Positive Memory of Jamaica & our Hospitality!

In addition, it can only help Yuh' to have a more Perfectly Enjoyable Experience here in Jamaica if you talk with and listen to Travel Advice from well-meaning locals who know what they are talking about. Rasta Routes Walk Good T.R.A.C. Centers are a Tourist Support Network of well-meaning community hosts...

Yuh' can find Rasta Routes Walk Good T.R.A.C. Centers hosted in any Clean & Available space in a variety of Jamaican establishments.

Hostels, Restaurants, Bars, Churches, Community Centers, Neighborhood Watch Offices and even in a few Private Homes of Business Leaders and Community Stakeholders that want to promote Travel Safety with Good-Samaritian Tourism Support made available at their local destination!

Many, if not most T.R.A.C. Centers are open to help Tourists with Valid Passports on an as-needed basis. This means that if Yuh' need Help or Haven and they're available, then they're open. If not, then Yuh' just have to try another T.R.A.C. Center...

Most Everyday Jamaicans that Yuh' meet on the Street are willing to Help Yuh' anyway. Walk Good TRAC Centers just make things a bit more Organized and Efficient for Yuh' - our Valued Baldheaded Guest! ;)
