The west section of Jamaica is home to the international airport at Montego Bay. Many tourists don't make it out of the Cornwall County region, and with all there is on offer here it's easy to see why. Doctors Cove in Montego Bay and Seven Mile Beach in Negril are two of the most popular beaches on the island. A large part of western Jamaica comprises of a nature reserve, which is great for getting to know the local animals. To get a sense of the history and Jamaica's connection with the UK head to Fort Charlotte at Lucea or the Rose Hall Great House. The house is infamous for the White Witch of Rose Hall, a legend of the lady of the manor who killed three husbands in succession!
Large swathes of the centre of Jamaica island are used for agriculture but there's still plenty to see, not least touring some of the factories that make coffee and chocolate! On the north shore there's plenty of outdoor fun to be had at Dunn's River Falls, Dolphin Cove and the Ochos Rios Marine Park. Reggae fans may also want to make a detour to Bob Marley's Mausoleum at Nine Mile. To the south you'll find Jamaica's most famous race track, the Caymanas Track, and Emancipation Square. Portland Point and its lighthouse and Jackson Bay Beach are worth a visit too.
Jamaica's capital Kingston is located in the south east of the island, with Norman Manley International Airport nearby. Just around the natural harbour lies Port Royal and its sunken ruins, and the Blue Mountains rise up behind the capital - a great landscape for hiking enthusiasts. There are plenty of beautiful beaches here too; Frenchman's Cove, Boston and Dragon Bay number among the most famous. For more active pursuits why not try white water rafting on the Rio Grande or head to the mystical Blue Lagoon for a dip in its phosphorescent water.
