Runaway Bay, Jamaica
Experience Runaway Bay, Jamaica
Runaway Bay, located on the north coast of Jamaica and east of Montego Bay, is certainly one of the most scenic areas in Jamaica, which is probably why it was the first place in Jamaica to be developed almost completely as a resort area. Since the early 1960's, when the old Cardiff Hall Estate was converted to a combination of luxury hotels, golf courses and private villas, the town has developed its own character and persona as an elegant yet lively getaway for those who truly need to relax, enjoy a bit of luxury and rejuvenate themselves completely.
Indeed, much of the beauty of Runaway Bay lies in the fact that while the town itself is not a vibrant bustling center, it is conveniently located within easy reach of Ocho Rios in the east, Montego Bay in the west, and with Brown’s Town inland to the south. Also as well as having some of the most spectacular beaches in the Caribbean, Runaway Bay is endowed with captivating natural features such as the Pear Tree River and the Green Grotto Caves.
Distance from Runaway Bay to Airport in Montego Bay: Approximately 45 miles (73 kms) & about 50-55 minutes by car.
