Experience Montego Bay, Jamaica
Travelers have always been lured to Montego Bay: the quintessential Caribbean destination, surrounded by white sand beaches, grand hotels, all-inclusive resorts, charming small hotels as well as villas and apartment accommodations.
Renowned for its beauty and range of activities, Montego ay is a place where history and legend come together to offer the most intriguing attractions. Visit Rose Hall Great House and hear the shivering tale of the white witch, Annie Palmer. Tour historical plantation houses like Greenwood and Belfield. Take a river rafting trip down the Great River of the Martha Brae for an experience of serenity. The Montego Bay Marine Park covers ten square miles of protected waters alive with coral reefs and exotic fish. Swim at legendary Doctors Cave Beach, known for its therapeutic powers. Gloucester Avenue’s “Hip Strip” is the pulse of the town and boasts restaurants, art galleries, nightclubs, bars, and duty-free shopping to rival any port. Shopping is sensational all over town. And don’t miss the local crafts markets.
Montego Bay plays host to a roster of music festivals, including the largest reggae show on earth, Reggae Sumfest. Jazz and Blues lovers can catch the annual Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival.
A few miles east of Montego Bay is the town of Falmouth, where the Parish Church was built in 1795 and the courthouse built around 1815 complement the well-preserved Georgian architecture. As night falls, the phosphorescence at the nearby Oyster Bay lagoon is so thick, it glows like fire in the dark.
Montego Bay – the complete resort that has it all.
