Nice beach with WARM water

Our last beach day was at Fort Clarence. Great beach with shade, nice benches and a couple of restaurants. I was sorry to see so much garbage washed up on shore though.

Hidden away in Kingston, a good cultural experience, just caught fish cooked before your eyes served with delicious bammy bread. Kick off your shoes, lay back and soak up the sun. TIP: Bring some change to hire beach chair.

I have been to Fort Clarence many times to get away from the tourist spots. Unlike the neighboring Hellshire Beach which is free, Fort Clarence requires a small fee to park and for the upkeep. Fort Clarence is better maintained than Hellshire and is also popular if you want to meet or submerge yourself with the locals. The food was... More

Spent a chilling 3-4 hours here in June. Waves Bar is friendly and has good fried fish caught right off the beach here.

This was by far the nicest and biggest beach in Kingston. Unlike Hellshire Beach which doesn't really have much beach, Fort Clarence is huge and a great place for family and friends to enjoy the day both in and out of the water. There's plenty of room to picnic and play games as well.

Went here with friends on a day out of the city. Clean, secure, fun place with a great beach in the Kingston area. It costs to go here but not much to pay for a secure clean beach. You don't have to worry about getting hit up by every person trying to sell you something.

I visited the attraction with a group of about 20 people. It was a wonderful day!! The visit was prearranged and the female representative at the gate was very pleasant and most professional! Arm bands were organized and put on promptly and the group was escorted to the reserved covred/shaded area which was adequate. We took our own food but... More
