Jamaica is a natural paradise in the middle of the Caribbean. Not only for its dream beaches, with white sand and turquoise water, but also for its mountains, forests, and lakes: authentic wonders of nature.

Seven Mile Beach

Immersed in the Caribbean, it’s no surprise that Jamaica is known for its idyllic white-sand beaches and turquoise waters. In the city of Negril, you will find one of the best beaches in the world: Seven Miles. Here you have coves and cliffs, the best sunsets, and a fascinating underwater environment to explore. You can also enjoy other beautiful beaches, such as Doctor’s Cave and Cornwall Beach in the city of Montego Bay, Turtle Beach in Ocho Rios, Frenchman’s Cove in Port Antonio, or Hellshire Beach in Portmore.

7 Best Jamaica Travel Destinations in 2021

Rick’s Café

With its beautiful cliff setting, plus the best sunset on the island and throughout the Caribbean, and the legendary Rick’s Café bar-restaurant is one of Jamaica’s most popular tourist spots. Located in Negril, resting at the top of a cliff on the far west end of Jamaica, it is worth visiting to enjoy a rastapolitan cocktail, watch some of the best sunsets in the world; the view from the cliff is breathtaking. Enjoy the sea to the rhythm of reggae or do some cliff jumping.

Blue Mountains

Among the places to visit in Jamaica, the Blue Mountains National Park is highly recommended. About two hours from the capital, the mountain range stands in the eastern part of the island and, with its thick forests and 500 species of flowers, it is one of the best natural landscapes in Jamaica. If you get there in the early hours and go for a hike, you can see the most beautiful sunrise. Bamboo rafting down the Rio Grande is also a popular attraction.

Dunn River Waterfalls

Dunn River Waterfalls is also one of the most beautiful natural places to see in Jamaica. They are one of the most impressive waterfalls on the island, along with the YS Falls. Close to Ocho Rios and the sea, you may remember seeing them in the James Bond classic movie Goldfinger. In Dunn’s Falls, water falls down the surfaces that form travertine rocks, as if they were stairs, so it is typical to climb up the slippery stones and swim in the natural pools.

Port Antonio

Located north of the Blue Mountains, Port Antonio blends a stunning natural environment with elegant colonial buildings. This charming port city on the northeastern coast is a quiet and impressive haven. Wander through the lush greens of its jungle trails or take a dip at Frenchman’s Cove Beach. Dive in the Blue Lagoon or take an excursion to the Rio Grande for Jamaican-style rafting.

Appleton Rum Factory

Rum is another commonplace when we think of Jamaica. In the center of the island, the Appleton Estate rum distillery is another tourist site to visit. Through a guided tour, you can discover the process of making this brand known worldwide and with more than 200 years of history. It is one of the oldest sugar estates and distilleries in continuous production in Jamaica.

Museums

The National Gallery of Jamaica in Kingston opened in 1974; it is the largest and oldest public art museum in the English-speaking Caribbean. There you can see works by Jamaican artists, as well as pieces by Caribbean artists. And if you are already in Kingston, visit the Hope Gardens, the largest public gardens in the city, and Devon House, a nineteenth-century Georgian mansion. Bob Marley is one of Jamaica’s most celebrated personalities. The Bob Marley Museum in Kingston brings together objects and memorabilia of the former reggae legend. It is located in what had been the singer’s home in the village of Nine Miles, near Ocho Rios, and is considered a pilgrimage site of the Rastafarian movement. It has been converted into a museum, and you can visit the mausoleum where Marley and his family are buried.

Visiting Jamaica will allow you to witness the true wonders of nature. Packed with diverse tourist attractions, no wonder Jamaica is a favorite Caribbean getaway. Visit these top attractions; it will surely be a trip to remember.

To clarify... the Bob Marley Museum, which is located on Hope Road in Kingston, is different from the mausoleum, which is located in Nine Miles in St. Ann. Ocho Rios is another town in the parish of St. Ann, so Nine Miles isn't in Ocho Rios. A parish is like a state, just much, much smaller. So "Nine Miles, St. Ann" or "Ocho Rios, St. Ann" is like saying "Miami, Fl".

Hope this helps!
