What to do and see in Jamaica

Head to the gorgeous white sands, boutique hotels and lively clubs of Negril – especially popular with couples and honeymooners.

Or visit family friendly Ocho Rios, with its all-inclusive resorts and array of holiday activities from water sports to eco-tourism adventures.

Spend time at Montego Bay, a party town also known for its great shopping and excellent range of accommodation.

Discover the ‘real Jamaica’ in the charming fishing villages of Treasure Beach, Port Antonio and Oracabessa, where you can find quaint markets with friendly vendors hawking kulu-kulu rum, ackee, yam and breadfruit.

In the island’s historic capital of Kingston – the largest English-speaking city in the Caribbean – visit the Bob Marley Museum, discover local flora at the Hope Botanical Gardens and glimpse colonial life in Port Royal, which was once the hideout of notorious pirate Henry Morgan, until a third of the town was destroyed by an earthquake in 1692.

Paddle a bamboo raft down the lush Rio Grande Valley and take a rejuvenating dip in the hot therapeutic mineral waters of the Milk River Spa, where the spring-fed water temperature often reaches 33°C.

At Ocho Rios (‘eight rivers’), visit Dunn’s River Falls, one of Jamaica’s most famous attractions, a picturesque series of waterfalls that cascade over limestone terraces and form natural rock pools before flowing into the Caribbean Sea below.

Climb the 183m-high tiers for panoramic views, or sunbathe and swim from the gorgeous beaches at the base of the magnificent falls – famous for featuring in the first James Bond film, Dr No.

Surrounded by tropical rainforest, spot bottlenose dolphins in Dolphin Cove and examine the colourful collection of exotic Caribbean flora at Shaw Park Botanical Gardens, a 10ha garden set on a hilltop overlooking the Caribbean Sea.

Admire a huge array of stalactites, stalagmites, overhead crags, tunnels and a subterranean lake among the spectacular limestone caves of Jamaica's north coast. For impressive sea views, visit Lover's Leap, a sheer 518m cliff just east of Treasure Beach.

Scuba dive among sponges, corals and sunken wrecks and see colourful tropical fish as well as nurse sharks, eagle rays, upside-down jellyfish and tobacco fish.

Come to Montego Bay in January for the famous Jamaica Jazz & Blues Festival held at the Rose Hall Aqueduct.
