Jamaica biggest attractions are its beaches. The north of the island, which is where most of the country’s beaches are, is the centre of the island’s tourism industry. You can be guaranteed white sand and turquoise which will undoubtedly ensure a relaxing stay. Some of the most popular beaches include Doctors Cave Beach, which can get a bit crowded, and James Bond Beach which got its name as his creator, Ian Fleming, lived quite close to it at one stage.
While Jamaica does have its tranquil beaches, there are also scenic mountain regions to visit on the island. The Blue Mountains in the east of the island reach a peak of 2,256 metres (7,402 feet). The John Crow Mountains also offer breathtaking walks, which are around the Rio Grande Valley.
Two particular waterfalls attract thousands of the island’s visitors each year, in particular Dunn’s River Falls in Ocho Rios. Water flows gently down 600 feet of smooth rocks and is a sight not to be missed on the island. Although it can get crowded it is well worth dealing with them just to visit the spectacle.
If it’s wildlife you are after the best opportunities to see the island’s birds, fish, and possibly crocodiles, is around the Black River. As well as the various animals to study, you can also view some of the island’s fauna and flora as it is one of the island’s most tropical areas.
