Renowned for its old world charm, secluded beaches and off-the-beaten-path allure, Jamaica’s South Coast is a veritable treasure trove of quintessential Caribbean culture. It is a region teeming with quaint fishing villages and elaborate Georgian architecture, a place known as much for its friendly people as for its pristine, untainted natural beauty. Complete with a rich biodiversity, delicious food and historical plantations, Jamaica’s South Coast is a not-to-be-missed destination getaway.
“With a rugged coastline, rambling hills, jungle wetlands, and colonial architecture, Jamaica’s South Coast is intriguingly diverse,” said Paul Pennicook, Jamaica’s Director of Tourism. “Its unspoiled beauty, warm people and lush vegetation has made it one of Jamaica’s heritage and ecotourism locations. Relatively untouched and all natural, the area is truly Jamaica’s best-kept secret, an ideal location for visitors who desire a laid-back and easy ambience.”
Jamaica’s South Coast is a treasure chest of coves and bays. A mixture of dark and white-sand stretches, rocky inlets, fishermen’s enclaves and secluded swimming spots, the region’s shores promise a range of possibilities.
