Located just a short 10 minute drive from the centre of Montego Bay and on the north side of the island of Jamaica, landing here and arranging to hire a car is the perfect way to explore this bustling resort area.
Things to See and Do in Montego Bay
Ironshore is the city’s fancy suburb and where you’ll find most of the biggest and best holiday resorts.
For those looking to experience a more Jamaican rhythm of life, head to the Hip Strip located on Gloucester Avenue. Home to smaller boutique hotels, souvenir shops, and smoky, jerk restaurants, the fun-loving atmosphere on the strip is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
On Church Street you’ll find most of Montego Bay’s interesting buildings, making it the most picturesque street in the city. However, far from being a quiet historic district, this thoroughfare is just as lively as any street you would find downtown.
Visit Doctor’s Cave, the most famous beach in Montego Bay. A pretty arc of sugar white sand fronts a deep-blue sea studded with floating dive platforms. The perfect spot for a relaxing afternoon.

Or, let your hair down after fuelling up on a delicious meal and Jamaica’s famous Red Stripe beer.

At Dunn’s River Falls and Park you can enjoy an adventurous day out. The falls are a beautiful natural phenomenon and will provide visitors with an exhilarating day out.
