Treasure Beach is a relaxing community just 90km south of Montego Bay.

That being said, it’s not in the middle of nowhere. It’s just 90km south of Montego Bay, the second largest city in Jamaica and where you’ll probably be flying into. Getting to Treasure Beach is just a simple taxi ride away from all the hustle and bustle of the rest of the island.

Seaside Villa is in a good spot in Treasure Beach
Seaside Villa is in Calabash Bay. It is just one property off the beach, a short 50 meter walk down the road to the beach.
Calabash Bay is a great place to get into the ocean, enjoy the water and some swimming. It’s also a wide enough beach to layout in the sand and enjoy the sun. There is a small pier, where fishermen come in and out for a day out on the sea. All of these things is the reason why Calabash Bay epitomizes Jamaica.
