There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Doctor's Cave Beach, experience rural life at Croydon Plantation, look for gifts at Jewels in Paradise, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Rocklands Bird Sanctuary.

Waterfalls · Beaches · Nightlife
The third most populous English-speaking country in the Americas, Jamaica remains a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, with the British monarch its official head of state. Jamaica tourism thrives thanks to the island nation's reputation for natural beauty, outstanding cuisine, and lively music scene. The country's landscape is as diverse as its population, its tropical climate supporting varied ecosystems that include everything from savannahs to rugged mountain slopes. For most visitors, a holiday in Jamaica is a largely outdoor affair, with hiking, fishing, golfing, camping, snorkeling, horseback riding, and kite surfing among the most popular things to do.
