Jaunts to Jamaica

With its unique culture, diverse landscape and vibrant cities, Jamaica holidays are in a class of their own.

As one of the world’s most sought after exotic destinations, Jamaica’s wealth of white sandy beaches and clear blue waters are sure to fulfil your fantasies of paradise. Coupled with a fantastic choice of luxury hotels with a laid-back lifestyle and lively spirit, it won’t be too long before you fall in love with this Caribbean delight. One thing’s for sure, whether you’re soaking up sunshine at the beach, delving into its glimmering blue waters or taking advantage of the numerous things to do on the island; holidays to Jamaica will linger in your memory long after your tan has faded.

Adventure on the Island

Those who crave variety won’t be disappointed, especially those more akin to donning their walking boots than a pair of flip-flops. With some of the most dramatically beautiful landscapes of all the Caribbean islands, it’s no surprise that Jamaica is a haven for lovers of the outdoors. Countless beaches offer a wealth of golden sand and clear waters, ideal for snorkelling, diving or sunbathing. Head to Seven Mile Beach in Negril – situated alongside a scuba centre, it makes for the ideal place to explore beneath the water’s surface. If you want to keep your feet firmly on dry land, head to the majestic mountains on Jamaica holidays, providing opportunities for keen hikers, mountain bikers and general explorers.

An island getaway isn’t just an opportunity to take part in action-packed activities – holidays to Jamaica also offer the chance to catch a glimpse of some of the most stunning natural beauty spots in the world. Home to glorious valleys, the breath-taking Blue Mountains and the impressive Dunn’s River falls, this island is a photographer’s dream, landing you in your very own paradise. Indulge your sense of adventure in the surroundings of Ocho Rios, while elsewhere, you’ll find plenty of adrenaline-fuelled activities – from horse-riding in the sea to zip-lining through forests.

If your idea of an escape is to lay back with a good book as you dip your toes into the sand, there’s plenty of that to be found too. Runaway Bay exudes luxury, with even its name suggesting something exclusive. A tiny resort on the north coast, the beaches are some of the quietest on the island, while those that have packed their golf clubs can practice their swing on one of the island’s best golf courses.

Caribbean Escapes

Dig a little deeper on your holidays in Jamaica and you’ll uncover a fascinating past and culture heritage that sets it apart from other destinations. With its own unique rhythm, Kingston has been described as the beating heart of the country, brimming with attractions, including the famed Liberty Hall and Emancipation Square. Getting to know the city is important on your island getaway – from wandering its charming streets and sampling the local dishes to browsing the fascinating Bob Marley Museum.

If it’s a laid-back beach vibe you’re looking for, there is nowhere more suited to your tastes than Montego Bay. A hub of reggae-infused culture and rum in the sunshine, the lazy lagoons and blissed-out beaches of this region are suitably enticing, giving sun-seekers the opportunity to laze on sugar-white sands.

Great for Couples

If you’ve been searching for that perfect honeymoon destination or extra special trip with a loved one, Jamaica’s hard to beat. With its white sands, sparkling blue water and punchy rum cocktails, you may find yourself falling in love all over again!

With a number of resorts designed exclusively for couples, perfect for those wanting to explore an exotic paradise together or just soak up the sun on some of the finest beaches in the world.

Beach Paradise

When you first arrive on the island, it can be hard to choose a beach from the miles of picturesque coastline on offer, so where do you start?

Negril beach, one of Jamaica’s most lusted after stretch of coast, provides an excellent starting point for your holiday to Jamaica. However, half the fun is venturing out until you find that perfect beach for the two of you. You certainly won’t be short on choice!

Adventurous Couples

Feeling brave? A candlelit tour of Rose Hall, the former home of Jamaica’s White Witch Annie Palmer, is bound to get goose bumps out of even the hardiest of travellers.

The creepy tales of love, murder and mystery are expertly relayed by the tour guides and the visit ends with a trip to the dungeon, now a tavern, where you can try the potent “Witches Brew” cocktail. If you weren’t feeling brave before this potent potion, you will be after!

Where to Stay

If you want to make your holiday perfect, you won’t do much better than the exclusive and luxurious Couples Sans Souci Hotel in Ocho Rios. This adults only resort is perfect for couples and all of its 150 suites face the ocean with the majority including private terraces or balconies.

Great food, spa treatments, water skiing, golf and a host of other activities are available should you want them. This is one hotel guaranteed to make your holiday here a magical trip to remember.
