In about 1900 Dr. Alexander James McCatty found a beach in Montego Bay, Jamaica, that was accessible only by descending through a cave. In 1906 he made over this private beach for the use of a bathing club. In the 1940s groins were built on either side of the beach to prevent sand erosion, and they have added considerably to the size of the beach.
In about the year 2000, shops, restaurants and palm trees were added at the back of the beach.
From the beach one can see across the water to Round Hill, and in the distance the Lucea area of Hanover.
