Dump-Up Beach Montego Bay

Yes, this gorgeous vista can be found from a beach named Dump-Up Beach, in Montego Bay, Jamaica. On a recent trip to Jamaica with one of my best friends, Joseph, we rented a car after leaving Sangster International Airport (MBJ) and drove into MoBay (as the locals call it) and parked the car. We walked around for a few hours, and stumbled quite accidentally onto this public beach.

This beach was built in the 1970’s as the city wanted to expand, so the name of the beach is accurate, if not so original. It is a public beach, and free, so it is a popular one among the locals. When Joseph and I were there, there were many kids running around and playing in the park behind the beach of which it is a part, and we even got approached by a hustler that couldn’t have been more than 7 years old.

*Thanks to my faithful travel companion, Joseph, for providing me with these photos to use for this post! His iPhone 5 takes captured some breathtaking photos, as I’m sure you’ll agree.

Christian "Krzysiek" Eilers is a twenty-something who constantly likes to look up the next flight out of JFK. His life goal is to visit every country in the world; as a young adult working full-time, he often settles on visiting the near countries of Central and South America and the Caribbean, knocking these off the list as it is less of a financial strain than Europe or Asia. Caffeine is his vice, and if he doesn't have a coffee in his hands, then it's probably a green tea. A native of New York City, when he is not traveling, he can find an abundance of cultural influences right in his own city, enough to keep him satisfied until the next country's beckon cannot be ignored any longer. He holds a cigarette in one hand while monitoring his Fitbit's heart rate with the other.
