Return to Jake's Welcome Page Choices & Amenities

Jake's is located in a small fishing village, Treasure Beach in St. Elizabeth, on the serene south coast of Jamaica.

Jake's is for the artist, the writer, the discriminating traveler who values peace and unstructured holidays, far from crowded tourist areas. This Outpost is family owned, operated, conceived, and constructed.



The restaurant at Jake's serves the best of Jamaica's spicy cuisine including Saltfish 'n Ackee, Rice & Peas, Escovitch Fish, Stewed Guavas and Banana Flambe. And for after-hours fun, the thatched roof bars and dance halls that are the real Jamaica are just down the road.

Continental breakfast is available for guests.
