Public/private beaches during Christmas time


I am planning to go to Montego Bay during Christmas. I will most likely be renting a house/apartment, I am starting to look now.

How difficult is it to find parking at the public beaches and which public beaches do you recommend in/near Montego Bay?

Do all beaches have admission fees and what are the approximate prices? Also, is it usually a full day price, or do I have to pay again if I go for lunch and come back?

I am also looking at Negril/Ocho Rios areas, not sure where we'll end up.

Thank You in advance!

Most beaches do not charge a fee at all and all beaches in Jamaica are public.

I can't recall what the parking situation at Doctor's Cave beach is - it is in Montego Bay and does charge about $5US for the day, mainly because there are bathrooms and changing rooms and all that.

I know a couple of beaches in Portland that charge a fee, similar price.
