Say hello to... Jamaica
Incredible beaches and a feel-good vibe are just a couple of things you can look forward to on a holiday to Jamaica.
All the Caribbean stereotypes are present and correct in Jamaica. Along the coast, you’ve got white sands fringed by palms, and ramshackle beach bars serving up jerk chicken to Bob Marley beats. Inland, meanwhile, hidden waterfalls, banana plantations and soaring mountains vie for your attention. Best of all, the scenery is served up alongside Jamaica’s famous take-it-easy vibe.
- Beach fanatics – pristine white sand beaches lined with palm trees, grab your towel and take your spot and soak up some stunning Jamaican sunshine.
- Rum lovers – Rum and reggae are the two staples of Trelawny’s nightlife – and that gives Falmouth’s evenings a laidback vibe. You’ll find bars and pubs dotted all over, but the ones down by the port have the sea view, too. If reggae’s not your thing, there are also places playing calypso, jazz and soca, a cool musical style from Trinidad and Tobago.
- History lovers –The island has got its fair share of history, too, thanks to age-old mansions and 18th-century plantations. Rose Hall in Montego Bay is case in point. According to legend, this grand mansion is haunted by the ghost of a white witch. Then there’s Kingston, the island’s capital. The streets here are packed with colonial buildings, and museums that tell the story of its past.

Holidays to Montego Bay are a perfect introduction to Jamaica. Tropical white sands, pristine coral reefs, and vibrant Caribbean culture – you’d expect nothing less from Jamaica’s second city.
With holidays to Negril you’ll get to enjoy the very best of what Jamaica has to offer – tropical white sands, coral reefs, and beach bars that swing to a reggae beat.
Holidays to Ocho Rios are a bona fide Jamaican blockbuster. The star is the Dunn River Falls, but there’s a knock-out supporting cast of tropical beaches, craft markets and reggae nightspots.
