Hellshire, situated on the southern coast of Jamaica at a distance of approximately 20 kilometers from Kingston, offers a serene and peaceful beach experience. This beach, though not as well-known as its counterparts on the island, owes its relative obscurity to its location, which is quite far from most resorts and hotels. Previously named as Healthshire, it was once a popular health retreat, and also served as a hiding place for fugitive slaves for several years before being discovered. The beach is ideal for water activities, and swimming; however, the food available there is the real attraction. Numerous food vendors offer delicious and fresh seafood and poultry. It must be noted though that locals may approach visitors to earn a quick buck, hence visitors looking for an unbothered experience might choose to avoid the beach.
