Visited this beach by taxi from Kingston, maybe 30 - 40 minutes. There was a small entrance fee to the beach, approx J$400 per adult. It had a great feel, very relaxing, not too many people hassling you trying to sell you something. Mostly locals playing soccer on the beach, lots of kids swimming and playing. Fantastic fish hut selling Red Stripe beer and delicious whole fish and other local foods. Will definitely be visiting this beach again next time I am in town!

With the type of security arrangement at Fort Clarence, it make the way for relaxation and a quiet day at the beach

So if you've been to Hellshire and hated it, Fort Clarence might be the place to go. It is relaxing, and the water doesn't reach the foot of the restaurants, and there is A lot more sand! It is definitely not your 7 mile White Sand Beach, however its nice for a day out with family or friends. No one there to harass you, its just cool! The food was OK, however Hellshire has a much larger variety in that department and it is cheaper. Its perfect if your not in the mood for the long drive to Ochi, Negril etc from Kingston. Overall its pretty cool. The entrance fee was not jaw dropping and you can feel safe whether your in a group or riding solo!

Its a great experience that far surpasses that of Hellshire

There is much more calm as the hagglers are there to bother you and hassle you to buy seafood from them.
The beach ambiance is soothing as there is more beach to walk on and relax as there are not as many stall and shop set up on the beach. You get the opportunity to relax and enjoy the scenic views and the lovely sea breeze

We hired a taxi for the afternoon ( really man named Mr Kelly) and went to Hellshire just for a look. Too many businesses close to the water, not much beach, and lots of people soliciting. So drove over to Fort Clarence. Lovely and quiet, clean beach, nobody hassles you. Also had a wonderful taste of Jamaican food at the fish hut (although it did take quite long for the food to come) when the food finally arrived, it was great.
