Jamaica is a beautiful, tropical island in the Caribbean surrounded by stunning beaches. The country is known for its reggae music, dance, rich culture, waters and track and field. People often visit the same places repeatedly, so, compiled below, is a list of some hidden gems in Jamaica.

 

James Bond Beach

This is where the James Bond character and films were initially created, hence the name. It is mostly enjoyed by locals and has white sand and blue waters that welcome one and all. This is a party spot for locals located in Oracabessa Bay near Ocho Rios.

 

Blue Hole

Blue Hole is a beautiful spot in Ocho Rios visited by a lot of locals and hardly known by tourists. The waters are aquamarine blue and can be a romantic getaway for you and your partner. For reference, the falls and the river were featured in Like Father with Kristen Bell.

 

Martha Brae

The Martha Brae is a river in Falmouth, Trelawny, a few miles from the airport in Montego Bay. The river is famous among Jamaicans for rafting and swimming. Enjoy Jamaican rum while rafting and listening to reggae music.

 

Lovers’ Leap

Lovers’ Leap is located in St. Elizabeth and comes with a story. It is a tale of two slave lovers from the 18th century. The female was to be bestowed upon a slave master. However, she and her lover chose to jump off the 1,700-foot drop in the name of love, and thus was born the name of the site.
