Seven Mile Beach
star-5

46 Tours en activiteiten

Seven Mile beach is 11 km (6.75 mi) of golden sandy loveliness. It's a paradise setting of azure waters, soft, warm sand and palm trees swaying in the tropical breeze, things you take in all before you see the resorts, the hustlers and the (gasp!) nudity.

Seven Mile beach maybe one the best beaches in the Caribbean (as voted by several travel publications) but it is also one of the most hedonistic. Topless sun baking is a given along its entire stretch and there is even a section (and several hotel-specific beach sections) for those chasing an all over tan.

Resorts line the beach and everything is on tap to indulge your every whim. If you can tune out (or embrace) the hawkers, constant reggae and exhibitionists, then this may just be your idea of paradise. More conservative-minded folk and families seeking a little more solitude and a tad less nudity may wish to park their beach towel elsewhere.

The Martha Brae River is the tranquil home of river rafting in Jamaica, the best way to discover the country's tropical interior.

While you're here, pay a visit to the port of Falmouth on the river estuary, known for its seafaring heritage.

Negril Lighthouse
7 Tours en activiteiten

Lighting up the westernmost point of Jamaica, Negril's Lighthouse stands at 20 meters (65 feet) tall and is one of the earliest concrete lighthouses, having warned ships away from the promontory since 1894.

Originally powered by kerosene, the Lighthouse switched to solar power in 1985 and flashes every two seconds.

You can still climb its 103 steps today for unparalleled views over the Caribbean. It's a popular spot at sunset.

Dunn's River Falls
star-4.5

227 Tours en activiteiten
Dunn's River Falls is a spectacular waterfall near Ocho Rios, where cold mountain water cascades 1,000 feet (300 meters) down naturally terraced steps. Visitors can climb the falls alone or in a guided "human chain," but there's also plenty of swimming, sunbathing and sightseeing to do as well. Those interested in geology will be fascinated with the way the falls renew themselves via regular deposits of calcium carbonate and sodium, and movie buffs will recognize them from films such as Dr. No and Cocktail. Families will enjoy the swim; the water is mountain runoff and fairly cold, which is perfect on particularly hot days. It's also close to Ocho Rios' land-and-sea attractions and restaurants - spend the day swimming and exploring Dunn's River Falls and finish up relaxing in town.

Montego Bay Cruise Port
star-4

266 Tours en activiteiten

Montego Bay is de hoofdstad van de regio Saint James en de tweede stad van Jamaica. Als u belastingvrij wilt winkelen is dit daarvoor de juiste plek. Maar ook voor de liefhebber van buitensport heeft Montego Bay alles te bieden wat u maar kunt bedenken.

De officiële taal van Jamaica is Engels (met dat herkenbare accent) en er wordt betaald met de Jamaicaanse dollar of de Amerikaanse dollar. Kooplieden rond Montego Bay zijn berucht vanwege hun agressieve verkooptechnieken, dus wees duidelijk als het om afwijzen gaat. Jamaica heeft ook de hoogste criminaliteitscijfers ten opzichte van de andere eilanden in de buurt, dus neem niet te veel waardevolle spullen mee en let op uw omgeving.

Rose Hall Great House
star-4

70 Tours en activiteiten

Rose Hall, gebouwd in het laatste deel van de 18de eeuw, is het bekendste landgoed van heel Jamaica. Het enorme Georgiaanse huis is het centrale bouwwerk op een plantage van meer dan 26 km2. Het is het meest bekend door de beroemde inwoonster, Annie Palmer, beter bekend als de “witte heks van Rose Hall”.

Ze zou een liefhebber zijn van toverkracht en naar men zegt heeft ze haar drie echtgenoten vergiftigd. Ook zou ze regelmatig slaven als geliefden uitkiezen en ze vermoorden als ze genoeg van ze had. Ze is in 1830 waarschijnlijk gesmoord met een kussen in haar bed door een wraakzuchtige slaaf.

Daarom is het huis gedompeld in fabels en bovennatuurlijke krachten. Dat zijn natuurlijk slechts verhalen, maar het gebouw is zeker een bewijs van de welvaart en grandeur van de plantagetijd in Jamaica.

Glistening Waters Luminous Lagoon

Glistening Waters Luminous Lagoon

star-3.5

5 Tours en activiteiten

The name says it all—located off the bay of Falmouth, the site of Luminous Lagoon becomes illuminated every night seemingly by magic. But there’s no sorcery involved when it comes to this glowing turquoise hue; it’s instead millions of microorganisms called dinoflagellates.

These special creatures flock to the Luminous Lagoon for its combination of both salt and freshwater, and they emit a phosphorescent light when disturbed. The Luminous Lagoon is one of only three places in the world you can see this type of phenomenon. And don’t worry—you won’t see any tiny organisms floating around. All you’ll see is iridescent blue. The warm, shallow water of the lagoon makes it an ideal spot for swimming, and a boat ride through wouldn’t be complete without a stop for just that. Swimming here is often a highlight of an excursion, as you get to paddle around in water that is shimmering in shades of bright blue all around you.

Green Grotto Caves

Time and tide have etched the limestone Green Grotto Caves, lined with the green algae that gives them their name. The caverns are home to bats and marine life, and over the centuries they’ve been a hideout for fugitives and runaway slaves.

Hidden away in an inner cavern is the crystal-clear Grotto Lake. Overhead, pockets in the limestone provide filtered light through the caverns’ forest of stalactites and stalagmites.
