Nine Mile is synonymous with one of Jamaica’s most famous sons, the late great master of reggae Bob Marley.
Thanks to guided tours led by Rastafarian guides, you can visit the former home of Bob Marley, as well as the musician’s beloved Mt. Zion Rock and his mausoleum. Many of the guides are Bob’s fellow musicians, relatives, and friends.
You can admire Bob’s gold and platinum records on display, along with musical instruments, his favorite chair and other personal effects.
Another highlight of a visit to Nine Mile is the Jamaican scenery you’ll see on the drive from the coast.
The village of Nine Mile is in St. Ann Parish, south of Brown’s Town. Hire a driver for the day or take an organized tour from Ocho Rios. From the coast it’s a bumpy two or so hours.
If you hire a guide at Nine Mile, be prepared to tip; don’t feel obliged to sample the (reputedly strong) goods on offer, a firm no should suffice.
