Puerto Seco Beach Club (8:30 a.m.–5 p.m. daily, US20 adults, US$10 children 5–11, children under 5 free) was completely reimagined and renovated in 2017-2018 after Guardsman Hospitality, the recreational arm of Kingston businessman Kenny Benjamin's security group, took a lease on the property. The revamped beach club officially opened on 22 September 2018 and has heralded in a new era for Discovery Bay, transforming its tired town beach into a destination attracting beachgoers from across the island and around the world. Admission includes access to the beautiful white sand beach with its crystal clear waters and use of the 150-foot pool, as well as shade under large beach huts on a first-come, first-serve basis and Wi-Fi. Beach chairs (US$5) and umbrellas (US$5) are availbale for rent if the shade under the thatch is all spoken for. Large groups can opt for private cabanas (US$150), which come with a six pack of beer, juice and water, a fruit plate and personal butler. Watersports on offer include Jamaica's only Wibit floating obstacle course (US$10pp), a challenging load of fun that puts even the best sense of balance to the test. Glass bottom boat tours, snorkeling, paddle boards, kayaks and diving are also offered (from US$10). The restaurant serves burgers, fish and bar food and a Walkerswood jerk pit grills up chicken and pork. Larger groups can pre-book buffet-style meals (US$15-20pp). The service at the Puerto Seco is top notch and lifeguards abound with watchful eyes. Dolphin Discovery opened its fifth location in Jamaica at Puerto Seco Beach Club in 2019. Patrons are not permitted to bring their own food or beverages.
