Jamaica Holidays 

Of all of the islands of the Caribbean, Jamaica is surely the one with the most widely recognised cultural cues. Our Jamaica holidays allow inspired travellers to experience it all first hand. The sounds of Jamaica have graced the world not only through the iconic Bob Marley, but through reggae, ska, rocksteady, dub and the dancehall music of countless chart-topping artists. The island is also famous for its jerk spice and of course the fastest man in the world: pretty impressive for a small island in the middle of the Caribbean sea.

Bob Marley fans can take a trip to the village of Nine Mile in Middlesex county, where his story began and where he was later laid to rest. But the sounds, tastes and smells of modern Jamaica are alive and waiting to be experienced too, in cities like Kingston and Montego Bay and smaller towns like Port Antonio. If you’re looking to delve into Jamaica’s colonial past, a visit to the historic centre, Spanish Town, will be a delightful day trip. Jamaica has it all - sun, sea, music and culture.

Luxury Holidays to Jamaica

Many of our Jamaica resorts contain everything you need for an all-inclusive holiday experience, with fantastic pools, spas, golf courses and more. The island of Jamaica is also known and loved for its passionate people, white beaches and the outstanding reefs which await at Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios. Inland, you’ll find dramatic waterfalls, the stunning peaks of the Blue Mountains and plenty of flora and fauna to spot and study around the wetlands and mountain sides. In short, it’s difficult to focus on any one reason to take a holiday to Jamaica: there are just too many! And don’t miss the special-offer prices and direct savings our experts have arranged with our preferred hotel partners in Jamaica, such as our popular Sandals Resorts.

Jamaica Weather

Things to do

Bob Marley Museum

Bob Marley Museum

The Bob Marley Museum is located in Kingston at 56 Hope Road - the legendary Jamaican singer's former home. The house, featuring 19th-century architecture was Marley's home until his passing in 1981. Six years later, the building was converted into a museum by the musician's wife, Rita Marley, to display his personal treasures and achievements.

Don't miss out on a tour of this historic residence, which also features a theatre, a photographic gallery, a record shop and a gift shop. Visitors are also encouraged to stop at the One Love Café for some fresh ital cuisine and juice.

Dunn's River Falls

Dunn's River Falls

Dunn's River Falls is one of Jamaica's most popular national treasures and tourist attractions. The waterfall is based in Ochos Rios and is spread across almost 600 feet. Naturally terraced, the falls are great for climbing and, of course, splashing and swimming in natural pools.

A hiking lasting roughly 1 hour 30 minutes will take you through lush vegetation to the summit with plenty of swimming opportunities along the way. At the bottom of the waterfall, you'll also find the attraction's most defining feature. The falls empty into the sea at Little Dunn’s River Beach, making this one of the few travertine waterfalls in the whole world.

 
Luminous Lagoon

Luminous Lagoon

Jamaica's enchanting Luminous Lagoon stretches from the small village of Rock to the town of Falmouth. The lagoon gets its name due to the bioluminescent microorganisms in the water, which give off a bright glow  at night, reflecting the movements of fish and other objects in the water.

See this awe-inspiring natural phenomenon for yourself on your holiday to Jamaica. Every night, there are tour boats departing from the Glistening Waters Marina, ferrying visitors around the lagoon so that they can take in the lights. Jump out and take a swim, watching as your body is enveloped by the water's celestial glow.
