Things to do in Montego Bay
Although Montego Bay is famous for its pristine beaches and clear blue waters, there’s much more to a holiday here than simply lying on the sand. In fact, there are lots of amazing things to do in Montego Bay.
- One unique thing to do in Montego Bay is to visit Rose Hall, a beautiful 18th century Georgian mansion that's become one of Jamaica’s most notorious buildings. Said to be haunted by the ghost of white witch Annie Palmer, it's said that her spirit can sometimes be seen roaming the old hallways.
- Shopaholics will instantly fall in love with Montego Bay, which has many duty free shopping opportunities to help you keep the costs down when picking up souvenirs and gifts. From sprawling malls to local open air markets selling handicrafts, make sure you have room in your suitcase for trinkets!
- In just 90 minutes, you can be at one of Jamaica’s most famous attractions. Dunns River Falls in nearby Ochos Rios is a magnificent natural waterfall, with a drop of 55 metres right down into the Caribbean Sea. It takes about an hour to climb up the falls for breathtaking views.
- Of course, many travellers coming to Jamaica will count Montego Bay’s beaches among the top attractions, and it’s easy to see why. Doctor’s Cave Beach is one of the most famous in the area. A part of the protected Montego Bay Marine Park, this is exactly what you imagine when you think about Jamaica.
Montego Bay beaches really do have to be seen to be believed. The city is home to some of the most stunning Caribbean beaches, with soft, fine white sands that lead all the way down to the blue waters.
- Dead End Beach in Montego Bay, Jamaica, offers one of the most authentic Caribbean beach experiences. It’s stunning and sandy, but if it’s peace and quiet you’re after, you won’t find it here… it’s located right next to the airport! It can be noisy obviously, but the views of the low flying planes are incredible.
- Doctor’s Cave Beach does charge non-members for access, but the small fee is well worth it. Located on Montego Bay’s ‘Hip Strip’, there’s a very energetic, on-the-go vibe here, yet it still manages to retain its relaxed Jamaican culture. It’s also home to one of the very best beach bars in Montego Bay.
