Guide to Jamaica

An island filled with hidden waterways and tropical treasures.

Situated in the Caribbean Sea, Jamaica lies in close proximity to Haiti and Cuba and has attracted the yachting elite for decades thanks to the islands diverse mix of Caribbean flair, luxury appeal and stunning natural backdrops.

A Jamaican yacht charter will ensure you have direct access to the island’s pristine beaches, striking mountains and tropical rainforests, as well as its diverse rocky coastlines. Jamaica is the third-largest island in the Caribbean and is renowned for its warm hospitality, vivacious culture, local cuisine and rustic charm. 

As one of the most thrilling and exciting destinations to visit in the Greater Antilles region, the island offers several different activities, from water sports to hiking, scuba diving, snorkeling and sightseeing. If adventure is what you’re looking for, visit the Blue and John Crow Mountains, home to 100,000 acres of tropical rainforest, the national park is a designated UNESCO World Heritage site. Boasting an array of endemic species of plants and animals, this area is perfect for nature lovers and hiking enthusiasts.

One of the greatest advantages to a luxury superyacht charter is the freedom to be able to explore above and below the waterline. Visiting Negril Beach and Marine Park is a highlight when traveling around the Caribbean island. The 7-mile white sanded beach is primed for an afternoon of snorkeling and scuba diving, discovering Jamaica’s exotic marine life, beautiful coral reefs and stunning wrecks. For sun-worshippers, there is no better place to lay back and relax, listening to the waves lulling beside you as you soak in the Caribbean sunshine. The sunsets that can be seen from Negril’s beach and cliffs are unforgettable and once darkness prevails the town and beach come alive with the nation’s reggae rhythms.

Jamaica is also celebrated for its nonchalant lifestyle and recognised as an idyllic paradise for relaxation and leisure activities. Head down to Montego Bay which is affectionately called MoBay by its happy residents. Once a port where ships bound for Britain were loaded with supplies of sugar, the bay is now a bustling area fringed with glorious bays with white sandy beaches. The bay is home to many luxury resorts, beachside restaurants, and an array of opportunities for visitors to indulge in land-based activities such as golf, horse-riding, tennis and spa treatments. 

Alternatively, Orchos Rios is another bustling resort with a stunning harbor and bay beach. This beautiful landmark is a popular spot, attracting visitors who come to climb up the terraced stone steps as the water descends and swim in the refreshing pools that sit in dappled shade. Explore the nearby waterfalls and lagoons as you discover more of the island’s natural beauty or head further inland where you can visit the resting place of Bob Marley, the godfather of reggae. 

With so much to see and do in Jamaica, a yacht charter around this region gives you the opportunity to enjoy everything this exciting island offers.
