Negril and Seven Mile Beaches
For those looking to dive in a world class location, Negril is the place for you.

You can also take a boat over to the natural reserve Great Morass and catch glimpses of various exotic birds and crocodiles while sitting up the magnificent palm trees.

You will find plenty of vendors and shops offering you everything from souvenirs, food and water sport equipment.
Dunn’s River Falls
This waterfall is located near to Ocho Rios and is truly spectacular. One of the few waterfalls in the world that flows directly into the sea, the river creates cascades that are over 180 metres in height. The rocks have been worn away over time to create a staircase like effect and ascending to the top of the falls is part of the fun.
Climbing with your group gives you plenty of opportunities to take pictures of the beautiful scenic views although if you feel like staying at the base you can swim in the numerous pools of water there.
These majestic creatures are all over the surrounding sea on the island and a trip to Jamaica would not be complete without seeing some of them. Dolphin Cove in Ocho Rios gives visitors a chance to interact with the friendly creatures although smaller children can only take part in the shallow water encounters and touch sessions.
