Winnifred Beach Is Open Again!

At last, some good news! I just received a petition update on Winnifred Beach in Portland – see below. I am so happy for the Benevolent Society members, and urge them and all beach users to keep it safe and clean and to OBSERVE ALL COVID-19 PROTOCOLS!

DEC 21, 2020 — 

Dear friends of Winnifred Beach,

We are pleased to announce that today we received an official letter from the office of the Hon. Desmond McKenzie, Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, authorizing the reopening of the beach until January 15, 2021!

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your spontaneous and sincere support. We will keep you updated if the situation evolves.

The beach will be open from 6 am until 6 pm daily and all health and safety protocols of the Enforcement Measures Order #16 will be implemented for the safety of all our visitors and beach members.

We thank Minister McKenzie for granting our request and invite all of our friends and supporters to visit us for the coming holidays.

Happy Winnifred Beach to all!

Nino Sciuto

  1. Hi Emma, I hope all is well with you. I was saddened to read your earlier blog on the environmental destruction caused by mining in the Cockpit country. I am however glad to see Winnifred Beach opening – my mother was born In Port Antonio and is named Winifred:). I hope people take the proper precautions while there.

    Best regards, Joe
