Mad Montego Bay

In the heart of Jamaica, the geographical King of Cool, lies its hip-and-happening offspring, Montego Bay. If the beaches laden with tanned beauties don’t seduce you, the ever-growing crowds of American college kids enjoying Spring Break on gaudy Gloucester Avenue (known, slightly embarrassingly, by the party crowd as ‘the hip strip’) will probably try to. ...

But don’t think drunken debauchery is the be all and end all of a Montego Bay holiday. More organic attractions include Doctor’s Cave Beach, Cornwall Beach and Walter Fletcher Beach, all boasting views you thought only existed on a postcard. Choose from diving, snorkelling, swimming or surfing, or just chill out on the sand with a drink and a pair of perve-enabling dark sunglasses.

Montego Bay's Top 10

10. Museum of St James Exhibitions, relics and a 200-seat theatre are housed in this civic centre museum.

5. Burchell Memorial Baptist Church Slave leader Sam Sharpe was a deacon at this church, which now houses his remains.

9. Dead End Beach It’s not the most appealing of names, but the sunsets will blow your mind.

4. Town House This quaint little house is currently a clothes store, providing the perfect excuse to shop in the name of sightseeing!

8. Creek Dome This hexagonal building is known as the ‘keeper of the creek’, although it merely houses a spring rather than any sort of troll-like creature.

3. Sam Sharpe Square Three statuesque admirers stare at the National Heroes in the centre of this cobbled square.

7. Bellfield Great House See how people lived back in the very refined day.

2. Greenwood Great House The court jester’s chair is an original from the 17th century. Resist the urge to sit on it…

6. Barnett Estate Get some sweet lovin’ in the daylight hours by visiting this huge expanse of sugarcane.

1. Rose Hall Great House A great house indeed – this massive mansion gives equally great views from the hilltop.

Christmas Day is huge in Jamaica. Spice up the usual roast and gravy with traditional specialties like rum cake and gungo peas.

  • Even during the rainy season, overcast weather only puts a dampener on part of the day.
  • Montego Bay can be extremely busy from mid-December to mid-April, and prices increase accordingly.

Getting Around

  • Walkingis easy between Gloucester Avenue and Downtown. And let’s face it, you’re going to be having a few drinks…
  • Busesdon’t run in town, but they can take you to the surrounding suburbs.
  • Taxisare widely available but can be pretty pricey at around US$8 per ride.
