Lyssons (UWI) Beach Review

Lyssons Beach is owned and operated by the University of the West Indies. It is located along the coast of St. Thomas across from St. Marguerite’s Hospital.

The beach stretches about 100 meters with light brown sand and a shore with almost no incline. There is usually a lifeguard on stand by. The water’s depth is not consistent and may get deep quite suddenly. At the time I visited there was even an old tire in the water!

It is okay for a south coast beach, one cannot expect much more in south west Jamaica. But a few additions (volley ball court, barrier or depth indicator in water) can improve the experience.

The cost to use the beach is listed below (subject to change at the discretion of the UWI).

This beach is best used for events such as beach parties or a group retreat.

I give Lyssons Beach a rating of 5/10.
