Don’t just take our word for it, this is what Wander Wisdom says:

If you gasped at the heavenly beach in the Knight and Day scene where Cameron Diaz asks: “How did I get into this bathing suit?” as Tom Cruise emerges from an ocean framed on both sides by green peninsulas, you wouldn’t be the only one. The breathtakingly beautiful Frenchman’s Cove has been eliciting gasps for decades. From the 1970s, when it was a playground, to the likes of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton to its popularity today, the beach is a tropical paradise incarnate. Due to its classical paradise vibe, Frenchman’s Cove has also been the site of many other movies filmed in Jamaica, including The Mighty Quinn, Club Paradise and Treasure Island.

Paradise is often used loosely when describing beaches. In this case, it is an absolutely spot-on description. A turquoise river gently meanders through a small jungle, complete with Tarzan-like ropes hanging from trees. The river eagerly makes its way to meet a small bluish-green ocean where forested peninsulas dramatically jut into the ocean on both sides of the beach to form a view straight from heaven. Those looking for quiet laze on the beach, which is known for being secluded and quiet. Swimmers frequent the river for the experience of swimming with the tiny fishes that are perpetually present.
