Where to go in Jamaica

Jamaica is blessed with beautiful and varied beach resorts set in leafy emerald green surroundings, each with their own special charm. In particular, we love and recommend:

Montego Bay is known as ‘Mo Bay'. It's Jamaica's second largest city and first class tourist destination. Come here for the sandy shores of Walter Fletcher Beach, Cornwall Beach and the most famous of them all - Doctor's Cave. The whole region has a genuine Jamaican feel, with colourful city streets, craft markets and bustling Caribbean charm.

The secluded beach town of Negril appeals to those seeking uninterrupted relaxation. Home to Seven Mile Beach and, with no building rising taller than the palm trees, natural beauty abounds here. The offshore reef here is ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving. Negril's bars and discos are some of Jamaica's best.

Exuding charm, Ocho Rios stretches eighteen miles around a beautiful bay flanked by a lush tropical vegetation of palm trees, sugar cane, coconut, and fruit plantations. It offers visitors alluring craft markets and shopping plazas, great restaurants and nightclubs, as well as opportunities to swim with dolphins and go hiking, horseback riding or scuba diving.

The capital city of Kingston is packed with history and is home to the oldest cathedral in the western hemisphere, as well as the unmissable Bob Marley Museum. We particularly love strolling through the Old Harbour and Spanish Town here, stopping at the ruins in Rockfort. Or head to the Georgian town of Falmouth for the island's best streets markets, particularly on a Wednesday.

Other urban areas we recommend:The north coast of Jamaica was used as a film location for Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean film series, but Port Royal is the place to find the authentic remnants of Jamaica's real Spanish pirates.

Of the island's many natural attractions, the series of waterfalls and springs at Dunn's River Falls are one of the best. It's one of the world's most astonishing natural sites, and one of Jamaica's most popular attractions.

Our holidays and itineraries are completely flexible and can be tailored to match just what you're looking for - if you'd like to see more, stay longer, or visit several different places during your time in Jamaica, just speak to our Jamaica specialists and we can create a holiday to suit you and your budget.
