Alligator Pond, Jamaica

<Back to Jamaica Homepage

Alligator Pond is situated on the south-western coast of Jamaica and is a small fishing village which is where the Jamaican fishermen launch their boats to catch some of the delicious fish from the waters around the island, while their womenfolk conduct the business of selling their catch.

Alligator Pond is unlike the tourist resorts of the north but still attracts visitors from far and wide to sample the good food at a local fish restaurant The Little Ochie which is located on the beach and is set under several thatched huts, many of which include the hulls of old fishing boats. There are also weathered cookshops and bars along the sand from where you are able to sample the local curried goat and wash it down with a Red Stripe beer.

Alligator Pond lies at the foot of the Don Figueroa Mountains, around 35km from Mandeville. The name is said by locals to derive from the shape of the mountain range, which viewed from the beach has bumps which suggest an alligator’s back.
