The prettiest and most charming cove in Jamaica, if not in the Caribbean. Frenchman's Cove consists of a lagoon which meanders around a bar of sand from one direction while the sea barrels in from the other, pinched between two tiny headlands that are overhung with greenery - giving the beach a luminous green light.
