Fun Things to Do When You’re in Jamaica

While you can recharge your mind and body by just lying down and staying in all day at any of the luxury villa rentals in Jamaica (which I’ve done for a couple of days myself), there are so many fun and adventurous experiences to be had out there. If you are looking for your perfect summer adventure, then here are just a few of the many ideas on how to make your Jamaica trip as exciting as you can!


Visit the Waterfalls

Of course, going to an island always has you thinking of waterfalls. And there is nothing wrong with visiting the waterfalls of Jamaica. This is one of the most popular destinations on the island, and that’s not without reason. They are beautiful and refreshing to swim and just sit under the waterfalls to escape the hot sun. You can also have a little more fun by doing rope swings!

Go Biking in the Blue Mountains

There is nothing more adventurous than going on a downhill bicycle tour down the 7,000-feet high Blue Mountains. While you’re up there, you can really see the beauty of the villages and observe the scenery across the island. You can also stop by the many waterfalls that you will see on your way down the mountains.

Go Zip Lining at Montpelier

For those who are always on the lookout for their next adrenaline rush, go and get your fun by zip lining in Montpelier. See the beautiful canopies of trees in the jungle below as you glide down the slope.

Go Bamboo Rafting

If you want a fun yet relaxing activity, go bamboo rafting down the Martha Brae River. You will not just appreciate the scenery around the river, but you will also learn about the history of the place.

Spot Crocodiles on Black River

Go down the Black River mangrove swamps and look for birds and crocodiles on this 90-minute tour. Watch as the crocodiles slowly swim towards your boat and stretch out their jaws.

Enjoy a Cold Beer in Pelican Bar

Pelican Bar is a floating bar in the middle of the Caribbean Sea. You will have to get there by boat, and it’s the perfect place for enjoying a cold drink while watching the sunset in the beautiful ocean.


Sunbathe on the Catamaran

Go on a catamaran tour and enjoy sunbathing right above the blue waters. If you don’t know what a catamaran is, it’s just like a yacht but with two parallel hulls. You and other people on the tour can lie down on it or sit up and relax until you arrive at the spot where you can go snorkeling.

Sunbathe on Seven Mile Beach

Seven Mile beach offers plenty of space for lots of people who want to swim or sunbathe, so you don’t have to worry about finding a spot for you to chill. The beach is also nice for people who do not mind seeing other people who like to walk around completely naked. So if you’re going with kids, you might want to take that into consideration.

Play Golf at White Witch Golf Course

The White Witch Golf Course occupies over 200 acres of land across the Rose Hall Estate and is admired for its landscape and their staff. The golf course offers quite the challenge, so this is good for old time golfers who love to be competitive.

Surf at Boston Beach

Boston Beach is popular among surfers because of its clear waters and waves made for surfing. It also offers authentic Jamaican food, so if you would like to try their amazing cuisine, this is the place to spend your last days on the island.
