Doctor's Cave Beach Club, located in Montego Bay, Jamaica, is a beach. It is part of the protected Montego Bay Marine Park.

History[edit]

Alexander James McCatty founded a sanatorium in Montego Bay in 1880. He allowed his friends to bathe at his small beach, which was entered through a cave. In 1906, he donated the property, and the private members club was formed, which still exists.[1] In the 1920s, Herbert Barker, an English osteopath, visited the beach and wrote an article which helped the beach become well-known.
