Add in golfing, duty-free shopping and easy access to the island's active adventures, and visitors can have as lazy or as action-packed of a day as they choose.

Montego Bay also serves as the gateway to the best Jamaica has to offer. Just east of Montego Bay is Ocho Rios, best known for its spectacular Dunn's River Falls. Or, travel west to reach the beautiful Seven Mile Beach of Negril, just a one and a half hour drive.
