Discover an island of white-sand beaches, rum and reggae

Soft white sand beaches, glistening waters and the ultimate take-it-easy vibe, Jamaica makes a great choice for those seeking great company, delicious food and picture-perfect backdrops. From breathtaking sunrises and sunsets in Negril to world-famous waterfalls in Ocho Rios, you can do as much or as little as you want on this care-free island.

  • The beaches and lagoons – particularly the island’s legendary Seven-Mile Beach on Negril, where warm waters and pristine sands await. Perfect for swimming and snorkelling as well as an array of diving trips further out
  • Jamaica’s laid-back culture and captivating history – rum, reggae and spooky tales of pirates. Visiting Bob Marley’s tomb, birth place and family home in Nine Mile is a must
  • Breathtaking sunsets on the beach resort of Negril, where hues of pink, orange, cobalt and periwinkle dance and collide before dipping beneath the horizon
  • Astounding natural landscapes such as the cool peaks of the Blue Mountains; the world-famous Dunn’s River Falls and mile after mile of lush cane fields
  • Explore the abundance of exotic wildlife such as tropical birds in the jungle; dolphins, turtles, whales in the ocean and manatees in the ocean.
