From the warm ocean breezes of Montego Bay to the glitzy shores of Negril, Jamaica remains a favorite destination for sun seekers of all ages and interests. The island is well-known for its all-inclusive resorts that cater to families, couples and singles. From exciting hikes through mysterious landscapes to heart-stopping descents into dark caves and deep waters, Jamaica's adventurous side promises to thrill chary enthusiasts and dare devils alike.
Jamaica's shores are as beautiful below the surface as they are above, especially along the north coast, where conditions are wonderful for scuba diving. Treasures range from shallow reefs, caverns, and trenches, to walls and drop-offs just a few hundred yards off-shore. Most resorts provide small sailboats, and yachts and cruisers can be rented as part of hotel packages or at daily or weekly rates.
Beautiful white beaches characterize every resort and lead straight to the warm turquoise waters of the Caribbean. Negril has possibly the best beach on the island, its uncrowded sands stretching for seven miles. The beach resorts of Montego Bay and Ocho Rios have fine sandy beaches.
Stay at The Ritz-Carlton Golf and Spa Resort which is the only resort to be awarded AAA five diamond status in all of Jamaica. The Ritz-Carlton, Jamaica is not a little beach hideaway but a 5,000 acre full service resort with an 18-hole championship golf course, tennis courts, a pool, full service spa, and a large private beach. A beach vacation the Ritz-Carlton is ideal for vacationers who want not only to sit by the beach or the pool, but want to do other activities as well. The beach chairs at the Ritz are very comfortable and have their own roofs to shield you from the sun and give you some privacy. There are also a variety of beach water sports available.
Stay at Caves resort. With only ten cottages on just two waterfront acres the Caves seems much bigger because of all the hidden romantic nooks that are scattered throughout the resort. Instead of a white sandy beach, the Caves has ladders that are built into the cliff itself and lead down to the water. The fact that the Caves is built into the rock and cliffs around it are what makes it such a great "beach" vacation. You will enjoy exploring the areas around the pool and the water to find your favorite sitting area, or perhaps a new one each day.
Participate in one of the excursions like Montego Bay: Jungle River Tubing- Four-wheel drive through the Jamaican jungle to the hidden rapids of the Great River. Receive a safety briefing before gliding and bobbing over the rapids. A tour guide will accompany you, pointing out the river's tributaries and plant and animal life, while keeping you on course.
