Gold sun, green valleys & black coffee

You can tell Jamaica is unique from its national flag. Its bold coloured symbols represent the sun, the land and its resilient people. Venture on a Jamaica holiday and immerse yourself in the wonders of a real-life Fern Gully rainforest, indulge in refreshing dips in waterfall-fed pools, and be captivated by the infectious rhythms of spirited music. Lose yourself in the island's melodic beats at the Reggae Sunsplash Festival, Ocho Rios Jazz Festival, and Carnival.

Sun and sand are ‘musts’ on the Jamaican agenda. Unwind on the idyllic shores of the abundant Seven Mile Beach in Negril or the charming Doctor's Cave Beach. For adventure seekers, delve into thrilling water sports or embark on an underwater exploration of vibrant reefs and diverse marine life with a mask and snorkel. The azure wonders of Jamaica extend beyond the ocean, with enticing blue holes beckoning as popular swimming spots. A trek up the majestic Blue Mountains rewards you with breathtaking vistas of both the north and south coasts.

You may not pass for a local on the streets, since most Jamaicans are native-born, but you can still immerse yourself in the rich culture. Nip to the National Gallery of Jamaica and the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston. For a more laidback induction, savor delectable dishes like ackee and saltfish or curried goat, accompanied by the smooth flavours of local rums. Book your flights to Jamaica and savour the country's iconic exports of Blue Mountain coffee and Red Stripe beer on their home turf.

Jamaica holiday FAQs

Some Jamaica hotels host a surplus of activities. However, some of the best holiday experiences are awaiting just outside of the resort. Grab suggestions from our Jamaica ‘things to do’ list to enjoy a dash of the local lifestyle.

What are the best things to do in Jamaica?

1. Shake up your swimming routine by visiting one of Jamaica's enchanting blue holes, located near Ocho Rios. Begin your day by embarking on an adventure to the Irie Blue Hole, ensuring you go before the rain arrives. After your trek, treat yourself to a revitalizing dip in the mesmerizing teal pool. While some visitors opt to jump in from a rocky ledge or swing on a rope, you can choose a gentler descent. It's advisable to have cash on hand for purchasing water shoes, enjoying food from vendors, or hiring a knowledgeable local guide.

2. Bob Marley’s wife converted the musician’s former home into a museum – and it's unsurprisingly the most frequented site in Kingston. Fans of the world-famous icon can cram in knowledge about his life and career during an hour-long Bob Marley Home tour, which will take you past his gold and platinum records and media clippings. You’ll also get to see his bedroom, left as he kept it, and his personal effects. Before you go, stop in the museum’s gift shop, record shop and One Love Café.

3. Discover the world of rum at Jamaica's Appleton Rum Estate, the nation's largest and oldest distillery. Explore sugar cane fields, aging barrels, and enjoy a tasting session. Savor cocktails at the lounge or grab a limited-edition rum from the gift shop.

4. Yes, you can bobsled in tropical climes, a la ‘Cool Runnings’. The Jamaican Mystic Mountain Adventure Park gives you a chance to careen down a thrilling 1000-metre track amidst the treetops. Race full-throttle or hit the handbrake to slow your speed.To reach this thrilling attraction, embark on a breathtaking 15-minute chairlift ride offering panoramic views of the lush forest and sparkling Caribbean Sea. After your adrenaline-filled ride, relax and unwind at the infinity pool, immerse yourself in the enchanting hummingbird garden, and explore the cultural centre.

5. Embark on an invigorating adventure and conquer Blue Mountain Peak, Jamaica's highest point that goes beyond its renowned coffee brand. Standing tall at 2256 meters, this prominent geological feature offers breathtaking views and an unforgettable experience. If witnessing the captivating sunrise is your goal, an early start is essential, as the seven-mile ascent typically takes around four hours. However, you can embark on the hike at any time of the day. The reward awaits as you feast your eyes on the stunning vistas of Buff Bay and Kingston on clear days, with a glimpse of Cuba's silhouette adding to the allure.
