Beaches

Long, white sandy beaches, crystal-clear water and secret caves: the beaches of Jamaica are unprecedented. Whether you stay in a luxurious resort connected to the beach or go beach hopping and visit every day another beach, you will always enjoy them! 
The truly tropical beaches are located close to Negril and Drapers, but there are plenty more opportunities. Close to the popular cities Ocho Rios and Montego Bay are beautiful beaches that you might have to pay for. The bigger resorts generally have their own private beach for hotel guests. 

 

Dining

With regard to meals there are some wonderful choices for everybody, such as haute cuisine, fusion or traditional Jamaican dishes. Not seeking dinner in a restaurant? Then you might want to buy some so-called ‘streetfood’ which will be available in little stands on every streetcorner. 
No matter where you go for food, the chefs will make sure your dish is a real delicacy. Don’t forget to try the traditional and typical Jamaican dish; jerk chicken or jerk pork. Furthermore, the Jamaicans are proud of their beer and rum!

 

Local culture

Jamaicans truly have music and dancing in their blood. Everywhere you go you hear music and see people dancing, clapping or singing. If you dare, dance along and experience the ‘groove’ of the island yourself! A great place to show your dance skills or improve them will be on a night out in one of the clubs in Montego Bay, Kingston, Ocho Rios or Negril. 
Rather unavoidable is the reggae music, Jamaica’s trademark., Bob Marley is still proudly presented as the icon of the music style.

Golf course

In Montego Bay you find 4 very nicely maintained golf courses, out of which The White Witch Golf Course at Rose Hall is the most recommended. The challenging golf course, which provides courses for golfers of every level, is named after Annie Palmer, the so-called White Witch of Rose Hall. She became famous because of her horrific treatment of slaves on the Rose Hall plantation and alleged voodoo practice. The story goes that her spirit still wanders around the old plantations, the current golf course. The south coast of the island, close to Kingston, also knows a couple of golf courses. The oldest golf club of the island, the Manchester Golf Club, is located close to Mandeville.
