What could be more beautiful and relaxing than a Jamaican vacation? The incredible beaches, fabulous food and Caribbean weather don’t begin to describe what a visit to this destination offers. Whether you want to participate in the myriad of outdoor activities or simply relax in the comfort of your Jamaica villa, you will enjoy one of the best vacations you’ve ever had in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
James Bond Beach
This expansive beach was the site of the original James Bond movie Dr. No. It is located at Oracabessa Bay on the north coast of Jamaica. Among the many extraordinary things that make this beach fabulous are the unbelievable St. Mary Mountains that serve as a lush backdrop to the beach.
There are several luxurious Jamaica villas along James Bond Beach. The amazing clear water of this peninsula is also the location for blues, jazz and reggae concerts with artists such as Lauren Hill, Ziggy Marley and Rihanna. The beach features a humongous two story beach bar decorated in a James Bond motif.
Dunn’s River Falls
The internationally popular Dunn’s River Falls is one attraction you simply must see to believe. These falls cascade over a cliff over 600 feet tall over rocky terraces. Visitors can take guided walking tours of the cliff and stand under the falls to enjoy a cool shower. The breathtaking bird’s eye view of the coastline from the top of the falls is enjoyed by tourists from all across the globe. Dunn’s River Falls is also known for the weekly festivals that provide entertainment such as music, dancing and more.
Nothing can be more relaxing than waking up in your Ocho Rios villa fully refreshed and ready to take a day trip to Fern Gully. This three mile stretch of winding road takes you to another world with a lush forest of some of the largest and rare ferns in the world. The gully is home to more than 300 different varieties of ferns; making it a botanist’s delight. Fern Gully is a popular tourist attraction for the vendors along the road that sell sculptures and carvings; including the life sized anatomically correct (and enlarged) male sculptures.
Villas in Jamaica
Part of the opulence of a stay in Ocho Rios is getting pampered at a Jamaica villa. One luxurious holiday home, the Jamaica Ocean View Villa, is a very popular hideaway for fabulous group vacations and events such as weddings, spa trips or themed vacations such as golfing getaways. The villa in Jamaica is located in a secluded cove and offers guests the full treatment with not to be believed sea views and full amenities. It is the premier villa for romantic getaways, group holidays, family vacations or some fantastic solo “me” time.
Dolphin Cove is the world’s largest dolphin lagoon. Guests have the exhilarating experience of swimming with sea creatures which include dolphins, stingrays and sharks in their natural sea environment. Dolphin Cove was the first attraction of its kind that allowed visitors to interact in the sea rather than artificial tanks. The attraction also draws crowds for its various birds, snakes and iguanas along the jungle trail. Children can enjoy games and pirate characters among other activities.
