Jamaica Holidays

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.

Why we like Jamaica

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.

What to expect on your Jamaica holiday

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.

Some ideas for a Jamaica holiday

  • Visit the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston and Reggae Xplosion in Ocho Rios.
  • Take a walk through the Blue Mountains and visit working coffee and banana plantations.
  • Explore fabulous secluded beaches and coves around laid-back Port Antonio.
  • Hand-feed hummingbirds at the Rocklands Estate.
  • Try the African influenced food and Blackwell Rum to immerse yourself into the Jamaican culture.
  • Pamper yourself in some of the Caribbean’s best small boutique hotels.
  • Lie on a beach!

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…
