Nestled right between Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, Falmouth is the perfect backdrop for discovery in Jamaica during your cruise— but there’s lots to do right there. For a relaxing ride along the shoreline, hop on horseback in Chukkah Beach. Cruise to Falmouth and head to the Water Square and jam out with the locals to live reggae. Culture cravers can get their fix during high tea at the historical Good Hope Estate overlooking the Queen of Spain Valley. And a trip to Falmouth wouldn’t be complete without chowing down on fiery jerk chicken and rum cake, two local favorites.
CLIMB A WATERFALL
Take an excursion to Ocho Rios to experience the famous Dunn’s River Falls. Follow your guide as you ascend to the top of the iconic waterfall. Be sure to plunge in the many natural pools as you make your way to the top!
TUBIN’ AND CRUISIN’
Head to one of the many nearby rivers and ride down on an inner tube. As you cruise down the river, enjoy all the natural beauty that Jamaica has to offer.
Just a few miles from Falmouth, Burwood Beach is a quiet and secluded swath of shoreline that’s perfect for some off-the-beaten-path beachcombing.
When it comes to jerk cooking, nowhere does it better than Jamaica. The same goes for their world-famous Jamaican patties— savory pastries usually stuffed with beef and spices. Be sure to pair your lunch with Jamaica’s Red Stripe lager, brewed locally since 1939. If you’re craving caffeine, have a cup of Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee— it’s rated among the best in the world.
The Shoppes at Rose Hall offer the best duty-free shopping in Jamaica. Here you’ll find plenty of luxury goods, fine watches, designer jewelry, and locally made island crafts and souvenirs.
