Visit Harmony Beach Park in Montego Bay, Jamaica [2021]

Visit Harmony Beach Park in Montego Bay, Jamaica in 2021.

The newest addition to Montego Bay’s beach scene, is Harmony Beach Park.



Brand new in 2021, the Harmony Beach Park complex is rejuvenating the South end of Montego Bay’s Hip Strip along Howard Cooke Boulevard.

Harmony Beach Park is a free, public access facility in Montego Bay, Jamaica. At Harmony Beach, you can find your adventure and immerse yourself in all things Jamaican – sun, sea and sand!

HOURS

The park is open each day from 6am-6pm, and 6am-4pm on Sundays, although each activities has it’s own set of hours, see below.

PARKING

Entrance is free, parking is affordable at $200 JMD per hour or $700 JMD for a whole day.

BEACH

Currently, the beach is open 9am-5pm on Wednesday to Saturday and from 9am-4pm on Sundays. Our visit was on a Tuesday, so we weren’t able to swim unfortunately. The park has modern bathroom facilities with showers and changing rooms. However, there is not much shade on the beach, so an umbrella would be handy for those looking to escape the Montego Bay sun.

Pair this park with any Chukka excursion, for a fun-filled adventure!


ACTIVITIES

There is also a large basketball court, running trail and a kid’s play area. Unfortunately, neither of these features were available during our visit, but the playground space is available through a booking system for private events only. To book a birthday parties or other special occasion, email the park at harmonybeachpark@udcja.com to schedule. Kid’s play area hours are 8am-6pm and 8am-4pm on Sundays.

Plenty of grass space is available on the sprawling, shady green lawn. It is the perfect spot to lay out a blanket and enjoy picnic in the park. I saw families enjoying KFC buckets, which is conveniently located right across the street. Or find a shady gazebo to hang out and relax.

FOOD & DRINK

We brought our own refillable water bottles, as we try to do our part to consume less one-use plastics. There weren’t any vendors on the property with drinks for sale, but there is space available. However, there were many buildings on the property, that were not open on our visit.

The park is looking to fill 3 anchor shops to be maintained and operated at Harmony Beach Park, interested tenants must be able to provide innovative, affordable, safe, and reliable services to park patrons.
