What to do in Jamaica

Come to Jamaica for incredible All Inclusive spa retreats and prepare to be pampered into submission. Come to Jamaica for the Caribbean lifestyle and you’ll find it in spades on day trips to Kingston.

Come for activities and you’ll find so many things to do: from crazy bobsled to waterfall hikes, zip wires, surfing beaches and horseback tours. For family activities, there’s great dining, music and resorts with kids’ clubs and waterparks, or try a trip to the Irie Blue Hole for a dip in a cool tropical pool.

Your guide tells you legends while you float down the Martha Brae river, but you’ll only hear roaring white water rapids if you choose thrilling rafting in the Caliche Rainforest. Take a horse riding tour or clamber on foot upriver to refresh at rainforest waterfalls. Play your best round of golf on a championship course.

Visit the Bob Marley Museum, which was voted one of the Caribbean’s top attractions by USA TODAY, to see the former home and studio of the reggae legend. Take a tour that gives you a glimpse into his life, from Nine Mile to Mount Zion. Be spooked by the legends behind the pretty façade of Rose Hall House in Montego Bay. Or take in the breathtaking scenery high up in the Blue Mountains.

Tuck into delicious fiery jerk pork from one of the stands dotted around Boston Beach and try all kinds of patty- like Cornish pasties but with stronger fillings. Jamaica’s famous rum and rich Blue Mountain coffee are even more delicious at source. Kingston’s renowned restaurant, Norma’s on the Terrace, serves superb Caribbean fusion.

Snorkel in the crystalline waters at Doctor’s Cave Beach in lively Montego Bay. Beaches are famous here; Frenchman’s Bay was Elizabeth Taylor’s choice dip, idyllic James Bond Beach featured in Dr No, and Columbus landed at Discovery Bay. If you prefer sand to celebrity, stretch out on the pristine white beach at Negril, it’s seven miles long.
