Scattered on the cliffs overlooking Boston Bay, Portland (on the North east point of Jamaica), Great Huts is an oceanfront ecotourism resort described by many as “the perfect place to see the real Jamaica”. The uniquely built huts on the property create an African styled beach-jungle-cliff habitat village that presents a pleasant hideaway for the back-packing ecotourist as well as the easy-going romantic.
Energetic, stunning and exciting, Montego Bay summons the hedonist, gourmet and golfer in all of us to come out and play. Sun-splashed shores awash with crystal-clear water beckon. Just 20 minutes east of Montego Bay near the Rose Hall Great House is where you’ll find the exclusive Rose Hall Beach Club, filled with amenities to make your visit comfortable and convenient.

One of the north coast’s most popular beaches, this spot lures you with its soft sand, clear water and an atmosphere of fun in the sun. If the packed public beaches of Jamaica are not your style, then Rose Hall Beach Club will give you a relatively secluded option. Billed as one of the top four beaches in Montego Bay, Rose Hall is located a bit off the beaten path but the amenities are worth the trouble to get to there. The white-sand beaches and crystal waters are as good as any on the island, and beach-goers have access to a restaurant, two bars, a covered pavilion, and a variety of rental equipment and activities. Whether you want to sunbathe, snorkel, sail a catamaran, wind surf, or join in a beach-volleyball match, Rose Hall ensures that the crowds won’t spoil your beach experience.
Located on the border of St. Ann and St. Mary, about 10 minutes east of the vibrant Ocho Rios, nestled in lush tropical greenery is the 1/4 mile stretch of white sand known as Reggae Beach. A famous Jamaican landmark, this breathtaking picture-perfect spot is a tiny slice of heaven. Lounge chairs are lined along the seashore, some grouped amongst shady random clusters of hundred year old almond and palm trees, while others are arranged closer to the waters edge. If you’re looking for a beach that doesn’t get crowded then this is the place to be.

Enjoy soft reggae music and great Jamaican hospitality as you cool out under a palm tree with a fresh fruit cocktail from the “Village Beach Bar”. Or try some succulent Jamaican-style fish, lobster, conch or spicy jerk chicken from the grill. Capture a golden tan while drifting peacefully across turquoise waters on a lie-low float. From waving fan coral to colorful clownfish and graceful rays, you’ll find plenty to look at while snorkeling the bay’s reefs. Kayak the coastline or hike the natural trails or experience a seaside massage. Try the seasonally fresh native fruits like Mangos, guineps, guava, ortanique, sugar cane, pineapple, papaya or naseberry. Challenge a friend to backgammon, checkers, or join a domino game. Reggae Beach has it all.
Port Antonio in Portland, Jamaica is one of the most celebrated vacation spots on the island. Whether you’re looking for ‘off the beaten path’ waterfalls, secluded beaches with undercurrents of freshwater, historical sites, snorkeling, surfing, delicious food or just some time to experience the authentic local charm, you’ll find it in Port Antonio. A place where you can truly escape from the stress of daily life, it is as if time slows down once you’re there. The sheer beauty and serenity of the environment will have you dreaming of waking up there everyday.
Located just outside of Port Antonio, San San Beach is one of the most famous stretches of pure white sand in all of Jamaica. With approximately 1½ miles of sand this is a private beach with offshore reefs and warm, shallow waters (which are ideal for snorkelling and windsurfing in winter) a small daily entrance fee allows you to swim, relax and chill out on the shore while enjoying the beauty of the turquoise water before you. Vacationers who are hoping for a taste of seclusion in Jamaica will definitely love this spot since it is rarely ever crowded.
