Things to do in Montego Bay

Whether sitting poolside at the Riu Reggae Hotel or in one of the fabulous drinking holes along the coastline, Jamaica is the destination for sampling tempting rum-based cocktails, accompanied by fresh, local cuisine. The trendy Gloucester Avenue, otherwise known as The Hip Strip, with its multiple cafes, shops, bars, restaurants and art galleries, is not to be missed. However, if adventure and nature is more your thing, why not book a canopy zip-line tour, take a river raft, hike to the peak of the Blue Mountain, or discover the tropical birds in the jungles of Port Antonio?

Resort Summary

One of the main reasons Jamaica’s second largest city, Montego Bay, is so popular is the dream-worthy Caribbean beaches. Located on the north coast, it has many lovely beaches including the famous Doctor’s Cave Beach – originally owned by a doctor who believed the water here was therapeutic. He eventually gave the beach to the community who built a private member’s club there.

Because of the water’s supposed healing properties and the beach’s natural outstanding beauty – boasting a 200-metre long stretch of white sand – many hotels have sprung up nearby. The beach is part of the Montego Bay Marine Park, which is a protected area with coral reefs. The members club is open to non-members for a fee, so you can speak to them or your hotel about snorkelling gear. Another well-known public beach is Walter Fletcher Beach where you’ll find the Aquasol Theme Park.
