Hear the word Jamaica and you’re likely to picture white beaches, spicy jerk chicken and a certain Bob Marley. And you’d be spot on – the Caribbean clichés come thick and fast on this laid-back island.
Lively or laid-back
On the north coast, there’s Ocho Rios. It’s one of the island’s liveliest hubs, with loads of bars and restaurants. There’s also the 180-metre cascade of Dunn’s River Falls just down the road. If you want to slow things down a bit, you’ve got the quiet sands of Runaway Bay half-an-hour away by car.
Follow the coast west for about 45 miles and you’ll hit Montego Bay, or Mo-Bay as it’s otherwise known. Here, you’ve got fantastic beaches, river rafting and Jeep safaris to get your teeth into. A bit further on is Lucea, which scores brownie points for its historical buildings, chaotic market and half-empty beaches.
Switch to the west coast and you’ll find Negril. With its peachy sunsets, ‘no worries’ attitude and famous seven-mile beach, it’s Jamaica’s original chill-out destination.
