Pon de Rock – near Treasure Beach
Pon de Rock is located in Fort Charles, a small community near Treasure Beach. This is a very quiet coastal area with spectacular views on to the longest natural beach of the south coast of Jamaica.
Pon de Rock is a property with three Jamaican style studios, each suitable for two with an ocean-front view, brilliantly clear air and an unspoiled atmosphere. The rooms are well furnished and the kitchens fully equipped.
You will find a gazebo with a table and benches in front of each house and shady sitting areas under the trees.
The studios are surrounded by wonderful rock formations with nearby, accessible caves which are ready for you to explore. The higher you climb the better the view of the Caribbean and Jamaica’s south coast. There are great views over the Fort Charles Beach and as likely as not, you will have them to yourself.
The property has many shady areas with trees and agaves, where you can sit and watch the pelicans and dolphins and have a “sundowner”. We have beautiful sunsets. Great snorkelling is available all along the coastline.
The Fort Charles Beach is within walking distance (15 min) or 5 min by bike. There is another small beach with lots of shells and easy access just 5 minutes from us.
