Attractions In Jamaica

Dunn's River Falls, Ocho Rios

Dunn’s River Falls is one of the top attractions in Ocho Rios. These gently terraced waterfalls tumble over rocks and limestone ledges into the sea.

You can climb the natural tiers to the top of the falls with the aid of a guide and cool off in the refreshing pools at the base. It’s a good idea to wear water shoes and clothing that you don’t mind getting wet. Also, try to plan your visit around the cruise ship crowds — this is one of Jamaica’s most famous waterfalls, and it’s a popular place to visit for tourists.

Seven Mile Beach, Negril

Seven Mile Beach, also known as Negril Beach, is one of Jamaica’s most beautiful stretches of white sand and aqua sea. Backed by the famous Negril Cliffs, it’s also one of the best beaches in Jamaica and a top place to visit for families.

Although it’s actually closer to four miles long, the beach extends from Bloody Bay to Long Bay. Tucked within groves of coconut palms, resorts fringe the shore here, from large all-inclusive resorts to smaller boutique properties.

Blue Hole, Ocho Rios

High in the rainforest-cloaked mountains outside Ocho Rios, the Blue Hole is a series of picturesque waterholes fed by gushing cascades. It’s also called Island Gully Falls or the Irie Blue Hole.

Guides lead you around the area, where you can explore the falls and jump off cliffs into the refreshing pools below. The higher up the falls you climb, the less people you will probably encounter, but negotiating the trail can be tricky. The adventure involves clambering over slippery rocks, so appropriate water shoes are recommended.

Rainforest Adventures Mystic Mountain

Ready for an adrenaline fix? Head to Rainforest Adventures Mystic Mountain in Ocho Rios. Here, you can zoom down the mountain on Bobsled Jamaica, a single-person roller coaster ride through the forest, or glide through the treetops on ziplines.

You can also enjoy panoramic views of the town and sea on the Sky Explorer, a chairlift ascending the mountain.

Rose Hall Great House, Montego Bay

Built-in 1770, Rose Hall is a restored plantation house with beautiful ocean views. Legendary Annie Palmer (the White Witch) ruled here with cruelty and met a violent death. Today, her home is adorned with period furniture.

If you’re a fan of ghost stories, opt for the spooky evening tour by candlelight. Guides dressed in character share plenty of spine-chilling tales of ghost sightings, and they’ll definitely keep you on your toes. Who knows, you might even see the White Witch herself!

Doctor's Cave Beach, Montego Bay

One of the best beaches in Montego Bay, Doctor’s Cave Beach is an alluring strip of white sand fringed by clear waters. Changerooms, restaurants, and shops are all available nearby, and you can rent beach equipment here, too. Note that there’s a fee to access the beach.

This famous beach actually helped shape the fate of this popular tourist town. Hotels sprouted up, and the area became a thriving tourist destination.

Rafting the Martha Brae River

Rafting the Martha Brae is one of the most popular things to do in Jamaica for couples. At Martha Brae Rafter’s Village, you can glide down a picturesque stretch of the river on bamboo rafts poled by local guides.

This relaxing trip is a great way to soak up some of the tropical scenery, and you can even stop at local vendors along the way to purchase souvenirs or refreshments. Best of all, some of the guides will entertain you during the trip, singing reggae songs or sharing interesting information about the flora and fauna.

Negril Cliffs, Negril

The spectacular Negril Cliffs stand high above the coral-fringed coast on Jamaica’s western shore. Rugged and beautiful, these cliffs a great place to visit for a sunset and a popular place for couples.

This stunning locale boasts unimpeded vistas of the crystal-clear water below. Be sure to pack a camera and a swimsuit, as jumping off Negril Cliffs is one of the top things to do in Negril.

The Bob Marley Museum, Kingston

For reggae lovers, visiting Jamaica without touring the Bob Marley Museum is akin to traveling to Paris and skipping the Eiffel Tower. You won’t need much time to visit the famous musician’s former home — an hour or two will do it. Here, you’ll see his guitar and other treasured possessions donated by his wife, Rita, as well as his favorite rooms as they were set up during his life.

Mayfield Falls, Pennycooke

Nestled in the mountains, about an hour’s drive from Negril through rainforest villages, Mayfield Falls & Mineral Springs is a haven for nature lovers.

Here, you’ll find two beautiful waterfalls; 21 natural pools; and a profusion of ferns, tropical flowers, and other rainforest flora. Butterflies and birds flit through the lush foliage, and thatched riverside gazebos beckon for pit stops.
