Around the charming harbour town of Port Antonio, you will find jewels like Frenchman's Cove and Winnifred Beach. These and many more dream beaches make for unforgettable beach holidays in Jamaica.;;;;;; Jamaica's underwater world is colourful and has a lot to offer for divers as well as snorkellers. Those looking for action on the water, on the other hand, will find good conditions for water sports activities in Mammee Bay near Ocho Rios.

Experience untouched nature up close

The island enchants nature lovers with unique impressions in varied landscapes. Hikers head for Blue Mountain Peak. The national park below the 2’256-metre peak is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
