Welcome to Sandy Bay

Located in Hanover, Jamaica, this beautiful property sits upon 160 acres of lush forested area and is home to breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and rolling hills. Once a sugar plantation and export hub, due to its close proximity to the sea, this property was known for producing substantially greater amounts of rum and molasses than the land was originally thought to be able to. The pier that the European ships docked at for the exportation of sugar cane, molasses, and rum still stands today along with the remains of the windmill and house that the original owners lived in from the late 1940s. The family built a polo field in the 1950s and horses have resided on the land ever since.

In 1983 Queen Elizabeth and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, visited Jamaica and stayed in the house on that still resides on the side of the hill. Now this property is home to the signature Horseback Ride ‘N’ Swim tour, the culture-filled Reggae, Rum & Jerk, rugged ATV adventure, and rustic Gilly’s Bar & Grill.  Gilly’s Bar & Grill is the perfect place to stop when travelling to Negril with a delicious and extensive menu containing an authentic Caribbean cuisine menu.
