The History of Doctor’s Cave Beach

Doctor’s Cave Beach got its name from Dr Alexander James McCatty, who once owned the beachfront clubhouse here. In 1906, he donated his property to be turned into a beach club and spent much of his time here with his friends, many of whom were also doctors. At that time, the beach was only accessible through a cave which it was destroyed by a hurricane in 1932.

Doctor’s Cave Beach really only became internationally famous in the 1920s when a well-known British osteopath named Sir Herbert Barker visited the beach and published an article about it, declaring that its waters had healing properties and numerous health benefits. From that point on people came from all over the world to try the waters at Doctor’s Cave Beach, and hotels popped up all around it to accommodate the visitors.
