There was one particular place on the beach front called The Morea with live salsa music and calypso.
I understand that "beach front" simply means that it was situated on the beach, right?
Not actually on the beach.
'beachfront' refers to the part of a coastal town next to and directly facing the sea, and any property similarly located.
Are you sure it wasn't The Moorea ( one of the Marquessa Islands, pronounced Mo'or-rea)
I think The Morea was a kind of club/joint located on the beach front
Yes - a beachfront club named after the tropical island of Moorea.
