Ocho Rios Jamaica

Ocho Ríos is one of many Jamaican tourist hot spots. It is centered in the Saint Ann Parish near the northern shore. Those visiting Ocho Rios can ride jet skis, windsurf, and scuba dive. More than 90,000 people live in this city with more people constantly moving in.

Formerly a popular area for fishing, Ocho Rios is now known as a great place to vacation. It is also a popular port for cruise liners, and a very important region for Jamaican tourism.

Dunn’s River Falls are located on Ocho Ríos. This fall drops nearly 700 feet into the Caribbean. Tourists can hike to the top of the falls for a breathtaking view.

Many famous resorts can be found in Ocho Rios, such as Sandals, Sunset Grande Jamaica, Royal Plantation, and RIU Hotels. Ocho Ríos is now more accessible since roads leading into the city from major airports have been renovated. Ocho Rios is loaded with great bars and restaurants. Among the more famous attractions, especially among children, is the Dolphin Cove, a place where people and dolphins swim together.

The following are few of the top attraction in Ocho Rios Jamaica.

Dunn’s River Beach
Dunn’s River Falls is visible from this famous beach. This beach is especially popular when it is hot since the fall’s mist provides relief from the heat. The beach’s surroundings are among the most beautiful on the island.

Dolphin Cove
For an opportunity to interact with tame dolphins, visitors to Dolphin Cove should schedule an appointment. If it is too crowded, there are other fun activities, and a great beach to enjoy.

Mallards Beach
Mallards Beach is conveniently situated near the city center. Many people on cruises spend day trips on Mallards Beach, as well as guests from adjacent hotels. People who enjoy partying with large groups will love Mallards Beach.

Puerto Seco Beach
Puerto Seco Beach is a great place to enjoy traditional Jamaican culture. Reggae bands frequently perform in this area, and many restaurants serve traditional Jamaican food. In addition to enjoying culture, visitors to Puerto Seco Beach can visit the historic Columbus Park.

Turtle Beach
Unlike Mallards Beach, Turtle Beach affords visitors more privacy. Beach goers will have more space and be able to enjoy Jamaica away from large crowds.

James Bond Beach
Like Turtle Beach, fewer people congregate on James Bond Beach. It received its name since it is near Ian Fleming’s personal residence. Numerous reggae concerts are held hear annually.
