Balmy beach days and rum-fuelled nights
Holidays in Jamaica involve basking in the sun, swaying to reggae, and sampling mouthwatering jerk chicken within a tropical island hideaway. Perfectly blending fascinating history with spectacular architecture, and accompanied by palm fringed beaches and a laid back vibe, it’s ideal for families, couples, and adventurers.
Framed by picture postcard white sand beaches, the island’s interior also offers its own natural beauty including the stunning cascades of Dunns River Falls, majestic Blue Mountains and lush rainforests. Enjoy adrenaline filled cliff diving or indulge in signature rum cocktails as you relish in the mesmerising Jamaican sunset. For a slice of culture head to the 18th Century plantation of Rose Hall or admire the Georgian architecture in Falmouth. Montego Bay offers something for everyone, with activities ranging from white water rafting to golf and browsing the enchanting bric a brac huts. Soak up the year round sunshine by day, and by night you will be spoilt for choice with lively bars and restaurants complemented by a Bob Marley soundtrack.
