Fort Clarence/Boardwalk Beach in Kingston

I’ve been to Kingston several times but have never gone to the beach there. That’s right – not to Hellshire for food or swimming, not to Lime Key. Out to Port Royal, but to eat only…I don’t think anyone swims there anyway.

And not to Boardwalk Beach or Fort Clarence, two beaches on the same general strip of Portmore sand (the ones at the top in this image)

Now that I’ve seen this article about Boardwalk, I’m curious. There’s a lovely peaceful looking beach, a restaurant with seafood and facilities….not bad for a short drive from town! $200J entry and you need to buy their food and drink.  Lots of pics and tips here.

Fort Clarence is popular too, as a quieter alternative to Hellshire.  Check these photos and tips about it.

Do you have a favorite beach in the Kingston area? Which, why? I’m not missing one next time I’m “in town”.
