The North Jamaica Coast region
Dunns River Falls; This site is located approximately 8 km from our property on the road to Ocho Rios, it is an exceptionally beautiful place that anyone must see whoever visit the parish off St. Ann. The beach has soft powder sand that is consistantly washed by the the water from the falls. It is at this point of the bay that the Dunn's River empties its clear cool waters over a series of rocky ledges. The falls can be climbed with a tour guide that takes you to the top of the waterfall.
Sevilla Nueva or Sevilla d'Oro; Is situated about 1.6 km west of St. Ann's Bay, Sevilla Nueva the first capital of the island. The Spanish occupied the area for a short period of time it then became unhealthy from the surrounding swamps. However the drainage of the swamps and the construction of concrete drains throughout St. Ann's Bay have vastly improved. The Seville National Park is one of the various historical sites that enrich this parish as it recalls the earliest visitors to the island.
Cashoo Ostrich park; Is worth a visit if you have an interest in animals and their surrounding's. Take the Ostrich tour with the children and visit the zoo or you can even go fishing. There is hammock's for you to relax and a kids play area with a lovely picnic spot. If you are feeling more adventurous, don't worry there is something for everyone. The relaxing garden will definitely appeal to those into holistic medicine and herbal remedies.
Dolphin Cove; Is a place where you can swim and interact with the dolphins. There are different prices increase for the various level's of contatc you choose to have with them. There is also a tropical aquarium and a jungle trail which many visitors love to do just for the whole experiance, however this experiance comes with a costly price tag, but it's worth every penny.
Priory Beach; is west of St Ann Bay heading toward Runaway Bay and they have a popular late Sunday night beach party here with good music and dancing.
Brown's Town; is quite a large community about 8 miles up into the Dry Harbour Mountains above Runaway Bay. The town is named after Hamilton Brown an Irishman and wealthy but character who owned the Minard and Huntley estates here in the 1800s and kept a private militia that he lead against black people. He loathed black people and led a group called the Colonial Church Union, a group of Anglican church goers who terrorised blacks and missionaries by burning down their churches so they would have nowhere to worship. He is buried here in the churchyard of St. Mark's Anglican Church which he built. Have a drive around simply for the scenery, and look at the old great houses, the historic churches and buildings.
If you are on your way to Bob Marley's Nine Mile be sure to go via Runaway Bay,and stop in Brown's Town, particularly on a Monday, Wednesday or Saturday when the market is at its peak with higglers (street vendor's) selling their tantilising fresh produce.
Nine Mile; Bob Marley's Birthplace is locally known as Nine Mile, this is also the burial site of Bob Marley. He was the most legendary reggae artist that ever walked this planet. Nine Mile is a small, poor town in St Ann's beautiful mountains's. The site is run by the Bob Marley Foundation and some of the funds are used to help develop the community at Nine Mile. You can have a tour guide to take you and your guest's through the house and point out the various personal items owned by the man himself and where he wrote aolot of his song's. You get a tour of the very nice mausoleum and the home with walls filled with photographs and messages and mementos left by fans. This is definitely a must for any lover of Reggae music.
Turtle Beach; Jamaica has many beaches but this is one is a short drive away on the road that leads into Ocho Rio's. It is a main public beach, so expect crowds when a cruise ship is in at the port. The beach is over a mile long . This beach draws both the locals and tourists but there is usually plenty of space to kick back and relax.
Reggae Beach; This stunning beach is located just east of Ocho Rios, near the Prospect Plantation. You can relax swim, and get a drink from the bar and have a taste of the Jamaican fare. This is very much a quiet beach where you can lay back and relax. There are bathrooms and outdoor showers. There is also a beach bar and cafe here, the only catch is take your own chair.
