This iconic Caribbean island has been a favourite for British travellers since the early 1900s. What might surprise you is the size of Jamaica.
The third-largest island in the Caribbean, it measures 146 miles long and rises to a height of 2,200m in the Blue Mountains of the interior. From here, rivers tumble down the island’s famous waterfalls emerging on palm-fringed shorelines with white sand beaches and turquoise water. Jerk chicken, reggae, rum and Bob Marley, where else could you be but Jamaica. Rocky coves, stunning white beaches, a vibrant capital and the outstanding scenery of the Blue Mountains makes Jamaica one of the most interesting Caribbean islands to visit. Excellent boutique hotels such as GoldenEye, Strawberry Hill or The Caves ensure a very comfortable stay.
