I am writing this on the island of Oahu where I am visiting my son. We kite together here, and the Hawaiian waters are beautiful. But I've never experienced anything like that emerald color outside the reef at Burwood Beach at White Bay, just a few miles West of Silver Sands.

For the windsurfing enthusiast traveling with friends and family, Silver Sands is a dream vacation come true. As not everyone in the party may be into windsurfing, one has to consider what the non-windsurfers will do other than spend lazy days on the beach.

Bodyboarding On Your Jamaica Villa Vacation
fun bodyboarding at silver sands jamaica
This sport is a dream as the learning curve to have fun is very short. Anyone can stand in the sea, hold the foam board in front of his body and move forward on it when a wave approaches, allowing the force of the water to propel him to the beach. With practice, those rides to the beach become smoother, longer, and faster.

Dine At A Cook Shop On The Beach (now closed down)
On most beaches in Jamaica, you will find the locals with their basic cook shops, serving up some of the best local food you could wish for. A truly amazing one is the "Taste A Yaad Restaurant" on White Bay in Trelawny. Check it out here:

Jamaica Craft Vendors
Meet and shop with a Jamaican Craft Vendor. These men and women can be found all over the island, especially near the tourist resorts and attractions. In the craft markets, they tend to be aggressive, hustling for business as there is a lot of competition among themselves. In more remote areas and when found on their own or in small groups, you can get to know them and enjoy their company with no pressure to buy anything. Follow this link to meet Ringo, craftsman who plies his trade at Blue Lagoon, near San San villas in Port Antonio.
