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.
White sand beaches, a lush tropical interior, a whole range of hotels and villas catering to every level of budget and a never ending supply of rum. Frequent flights and some really gorgeous places to stay. It is time to take another look.
Travelling around Jamaica is fun and well worth the odd pothole, common on the bone-rattling roads. Jamaica's somewhat turbulent colonial past is evident in Spanish and English place names, as well as in the architecture of the plantation houses built by their British owners, and whose continued production links past and present. Modern Jamaica is a proud independent nation that marches to a fantastic soundtrack of reggae, ska and dancehall washed down by Jamaican rum.
John is our Jamaica expert, and has had the arduous task of deciding if he liked his martini stirred or shaken while staying at Ian Fleming’s classic villa, GoldenEye. We are told he did explore the rest of the island too…
