Let yourself relax on the white sandy beach and swim or snorkel in the turquoise water. The beach is also part of the Montego Bay Marine Park where you can admire the marine life in the coral reef. The approximately 15-minute drive from the port is highly recommended. Admission to the beach is $ 6 per person.

After a 45-minute drive you will arrive at Martha Brae River Rafting Village. Here you have the opportunity to experience the special river journey. You will descend the river Martha Brae, which later flows into the Caribbean sea on a 9-foot hand-made bamboo raft.
During the trip, you can enjoy a magical atmosphere with exotic flora and fauna along the banks. The ride with your raft captain takes about an hour. You can also leave the raft and swim in the refreshing river.
Dunn’s River Falls
After a good 1.5-hour drive from Montego Bay you can get to the popular Dunn’s River waterfalls – one of the main attractions of the island. The waterfalls extend over a distance of 200m (656 ft) until they finally flow into the Caribbean Sea.
Enjoy the spectacular scenery from a staircase next to the waterfalls. Step by step, you can climb up the slope. At most part of the route, the rocks are formed as steps in such a way that are easy to walk on. If necessary, other visitors or guides will help you. You can also take a break anytime to relax and swim in the water.
