Ocho Rios on Jamaica's north coast, stretches 18 miles around a beautiful bay. Its beaches are ideal for swimming and water-sports. The bay is flanked by lush tropical vegetation of palm trees, sugar cane, coconut, and fruit plantations. The town of Ocho Rios has shopping plazas, craft markets and roadside stalls selling local handicrafts and souvenirs. There is also duty free shopping in the plazas in town and the larger hotels have a range of boutiques and shops. With a wide variety of restaurants available you can sample spicy local dishes, enjoy fine contemporary cuisine or eat at one of the major fast food chains. Ocho Rios is also a popular call for cruise ships, where passengers can easily disembark to visit the local attractions.
Just west of Ocho Rios you will find Dunn’s River Falls, one of Jamaica's most famous natural attractions, where you can marvel at the beautiful cascades and swim in the refreshing cool waters. Other popular excursions go to Fern Gully, and Shaw Park Botanical Gardens. Daytime and evening cruises are also popular around the stunning bay. Do as much or as little as you choose in this fabulous area of Jamaica.
