It doesn’t matter where you’re staying, there are so many things to do on the beautiful island of Jamaica! Below are some of our favorites.
– YS Falls –
YS Falls is located on a working cattle and horse farm called YS Estate located in St. Elizabeth. YS Falls has seven beautiful waterfalls surrounded by lush gardens and gorgeous trees. There is also a refreshing natural spring pool and they offer canopy rides from the top of the springs to the bottom! One of Jamaica’s finest natural attractions!
– Martha Brae River Bamboo Rafting –
If you’re looking for a relaxing float on a bamboo raft in a magnificent place, Martha Brae is for you! The raft is about three miles long and lasts approximately one hour. As you can see, it’s a beautiful place, but please wear your bug spray!
– Catamaran Sunset Cruise –
Negril or Anywhere!
The best way to see a sunset! Sippin’ on some rum, jammin’ to some reggae music, enjoying the nice relaxing ride. A stop to snorkel in the caves along the shore and watch the locals do diving tricks for tips (Negril).
– Irie Blue Hole –
Ochos Rios’ hidden gem, Blue Hole is simply breathtaking. Off the beaten path with few tourists, it’s a great way to take in Jamaica’s natural island beauty. Jump off waterfalls, climb in caves and swing from the vines into the refreshing blue waters.
– Luminous Lagoon or Glistening Waters –
When the fresh water of the Martha Brae River combines with the sea water these tiny microorganisms called dinoflagellates thrive. They emit a glow when they are disturbed. It’s such a cool phenomenon! Glistening Waters offers daily tours starting at sunset.
– Seven Mile Beach –
Seven Mile Beach is longest continuous stretch of powdery white sand in Jamaica. There are a variety of water activities, cliffs and a lighthouse at one end. Or, it’s just a beautiful place to watch an amazing Jamaican sunset!
– Dunn’s River Falls –
Jamaica’s national treasure, Dunn’s River Falls, attracts thousands of visitors each year. Hand in hand, make the 600 feet climb from the bottom of the falls to the top. If a beach is your thing, there is one located at the base of the falls where the river meets the ocean. A must do if you’re visiting Jamaica!
– Rick’s Cafe –
Rick’s Cafe, voted one of the sexiest bars in the Caribbean. Resting at the top of a cliff on the very west end of Jamaica, it boasts some of the best sunsets in the world! During the day, cliff jumping is a favorite among the locals and tourists.
– Black River –
The Black River is one of Jamaica’s longest rivers. The name derives from it’s dark riverbed, which comes from the decomposing vegetation that has built up over the years beneath the water. Filled with mangroves and crocodiles, it’s quite a fun boat ride!
– Rose Hall Great House –
St. Bran’s Burg
Rose Hall is the most well-known great house in all of Jamaica. Take a tour through the home and learn about the story of Annie Palmer, aka the White Witch of Rose Hall.
With so many beautiful places and so much to do in Jamaica, this is just a fraction of them. We love the island so much, we will be back again to explore even more! Bob Marley birthplace, Mayfield Falls, Frenchman’s Cove, the other Blue Hole in Negril. I can go on and on, this island is jam packed with both beauty and adventure!
