A long beautiful beach lies on the East side of Jamaica, Long Bay. The contentious ocean pounds ashore onto a wide, palm shaded sandy beach. The beach is dotted with Tiki Hut bars, restaurants and cabins. The vibe is laid back and European.
Visit one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Jamaica. Reach Falls can be found in Portland Parish. Just South of Manchioneal, three miles inland off the A4, the Drivers River plunges 30’ into a wide aqua pool.
Trekking to the top of the Blue Mountain begins well before dawn. Start with a fire roasted cup of Blue Mountain organic coffee, one of the most famous flavors of coffee. The trek is six miles long. Walk slow and pace yourself. The goal is to walk at night so you can reach the peak at sunrise.
Public beaches are getting rare in Jamaica. Much of the prime coastline has been privatized, leaving little for locals to enjoy. But Lyssons Beach has enjoyed a comeback and rejuvination in the hands of locals for locals!
