In the jungly mountains above Ocho Rios, you'll find a series of waterfalls and deep swimming holes, including the Blue Hole pictured above, that are popular with tourists looking for an adrenaline rush in the form of cliff diving. Getting to the waterholes is an adventure in itself that involves climbing over slippery rocks. Make sure to wear appropriate shoes.
Seven Mile Beach, Negril
On Jamaica's west coast, Negril Beach, also known as Seven Mile Beach is a dreamy stretch of white sand and emerald sea that runs from Bloody Bay south to the Negril Cliffs. There is decent snorkeling just offshore, and water sports of all varieties can be arranged. Negril is also home to a number of excellent luxury resorts.
Nightclubs and Bars in Unexpected Places
We know it looks rickety, but this low-key, driftwood-and-palm-frond hut—located on a sandbar in Parottee Bay, one mile off Jamaica’s southern coast—has stood strong for more than a decade. Patrons at the Pelican Bar, who arrive and leave by boat, sip cold beers and rum punch as they wade waist deep in the clear Caribbean water. (Pro tip: Bring a token to leave behind; visitors’ tchotchkes festoon the bar’s interior.).
Dunn's River Falls
Dunn's River Falls is one of Jamaica's top natural attractions. The gently terraced waterfalls tumble down rocks and ledges for some 180 meters before finally reaching the sea. Pick up a guide at the entrance to the falls, and you can climb to the top and cool off in one of the natural pools.
Under the Sea in Jamaica
There are a number of good dive and snorkeling spots around Jamaica, where you'll see schools of colorful fish; coral; and if you're lucky, sea turtles or nurse sharks. Some of the best areas for snorkeling are found in the reefs offshore.
At the southern end of Seven Mile Beach are the Negril Cliffs. The rocky outcroppings are extremely popular with cliff jumpers. Here, you'll also find the 3 Dive Restaurant, which serves Jamaican fare by the cliffs and is stunning at sunset. Some of Negril's top resorts are also here.
