The land of reggae and rum, Jamaica is brimming with palm-lined golden sands, thriving plantations and a rugged interior. The warm, clear waters and sun-soaked beaches host an array of exciting water sports and activities, from volleyball to deep-sea fishing. Montego Bay is home to exquisite resorts and beautiful bays, while Negril is set on famous Seven Mile Beach. Among Jamaica’s national treasures is Dunn’s River Falls, near Ochos Rios. Don’t miss the chance to cool off in the pure waters of this natural wonder.

Our range of beach holidays called Escapes will help you get under the skin of it though. Including hand-picked hotels, flights and some exclusive extras, these trips have been lovingly created by our Travel Experts.
