Jamaican Farewell

“Down the way where the nights are gay and the sun shines daily on the mountain top.  I took a trip on a sailing ship and when I reached Jamaica I made a stop.” Why not make a stop.

1)Negril Beach and the Negril Cliffs

Also called as Seven Mile Beach, Negril Beach is  Jamaica’s most beautiful beach consisting  of  crystal white sand and aquamarine. It  aces the list of the Caribbean’s top listed beaches. This locale spreads  from Bloody Bay to Long Bay and the Negril Cliffs towards the southern end of the  town. Situated  within acres of  coconut trees,  resorts line  the seacoast  here. All types. Ranging from  large all-inclusive resorts to compact boutiques. Water sports are ample, and people  will find schools of fish swimming in the clear waters.


2) Martha Brae River

Rafting the Martha Brae is acclaimed as  the most popular thing in Jamaica. At Martha Brae Rafter’s Village, one can slide down a splendid stretch of the river on bamboo rafts poled by local guides. This relaxation giving journey  is a good method so as to take in  some of the tropical scenery, and some prized information about the land via the tourist guides along the way, who are sharing information regarding the flora and fauna.


3)Dunn’s River Falls

Crossing the 180 meters of aptly  flowing waterfalls, Dunn’s River Falls is known as  Jamaica’s most famous nature gifted attraction. The falls flow over rocks and limestone ledges as they dwelve towards the sea. One could  climb the natural tiers to the top of the falls with the aid of a guide and cool off in the refreshing pools at the base. It makes one heck of a good idea to put on water shoes and clothing, that is if one minds getting wet.


4) Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park

Recently, the splendid Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park was initiated upon the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Why? For the sake of  its rich natural and cultural heritage. Once  upon a time it acted as a refuge for  slaves and the indigenous Taino, who had often fled there so as to escape slavery. This unmolested  preserve offers breathtaking scenery.


5)Port Antonio

Tucked within mountains and boasted with a  double harbor, Port Antonio exuberates a  calming charm typical of a fantasy coastal village. In historical times, it was a center for banana export. But nowadays the area is distinctly less commercial than the other resort towns. Celebrated things to do here are inclusive of hiking jungle trails, rafting the Rio Grande, taking a tour to Reach Falls, and snorkeling and diving the coral reefs. A nice  swimming area  is the beautiful 60-meter-deep Blue Lagoon, which is drawn  by hot water and fresh springs.


6)Doctor’s Cave Beach, Montego Bay

Some  of the best beaches are in Montego Bay. And  Doctor’s Cave Beach  is the bes. For it is an intricate strip of white sand fringed by clear waters that helped shape the destiny of such a celebrated holiday spot. During the 1920s, a famous British osteopath had declared that this water found here was possessing curative and medicative powers. Thus many fled for swimming here. Then it became popular and  began to lure visitors from across the globe. Hotels rose up, and the locale developed as a very popular tourist spot.
