As laid back as a reggae rhythm in some ways, and as spicy as jerk chicken in others, holiday deals to Jamaica promise something for everyone. There’s mile upon mile
of picture-postcard beaches plus fantastic resorts like buzzing Montego Bay and relaxed Negril to enjoy. There’s mist-shrouded mountains and dense tropical rainforest, where tumbling waterfalls and tropical birds form the only soundtrack. There’s tipping your hat to homeboy Bob Marley and dancing the night away to the Jamaican beat. And everywhere, there’s sun, sun, sun.
If you come to Jamaica for the beaches, you won’t be disappointed. Doctor’s Cave Beach at Montego Bay has silky white sand and swaying palm trees, plus a strip of shops and restaurants for good off-beach action. Negril Beach is a Caribbean classic with seven miles of talcum-powder sand shelving gently into turquoise water, as well as some of the most jaw-dropping sunsets you’ll ever see. (You can even take your clothes off on certain stretches for that all-over tan!) And explore the south coast, and you’ll discover secluded coves where pirates once hid.
Staying stretched out on the sand is certainly an enticing option on holiday deals to Jamaica. But the island has so much more to offer, and whether you take a hike up into the Blue Mountains for glorious views, spot crocodiles among the mangrove swamps of the Black River, or explore the Green Grotto Caves, there’s plenty to tempt you away from the beach. There’s also history to discover, including imposing plantation houses like Rose Hall Great House, while a visit to the capital Kingston, with its colonial architecture and reggae clubs, helps you get right under the island’s skin.
All this, plus ocean-fresh seafood, spicy creole cooking, Captain Morgan’s rum and Red Stripe beer…plus a party waiting to happen round every corner. As the locals would say, ‘Ya mon!’
