Affectionately referred to as “MoBay,” Montego Bay lies on the northwest coast of Jamaica and pulses with the energy of authentic Jamaican life.
MoBay is home to some of the island’s most scenic beaches. At the popular Doctor’s Cave Beach you’ll find scores of visitors enjoying the warm waters. Another popular seaside retreat is Cornwall Beach.
Animal lovers can head south to Dolphin Cove in Lucea, Hanover, just 40 minutes outside of MoBay. This marine attraction offers close encounters with dolphins and other aquatic creatures.
History and culture buffs should visit the Bellefield Great House and Gardens, one of the oldest sugar plantations in Jamaica. Steeped in history, mystery and magic, Rose Hall Great House offers a slice of colonial life reminiscent of the 1770s. Legend has it that the ghost of Annie Palmer still haunts the mansion today.
St. James Parish Church was built between 1775 and 1782 in the shape of a Greek cross and is regarded as one of Jamaica’s finest churches.
Nearby Good Hope Estate offers tours of the property that can be thrilling — think river tubing and zip lining — or more relaxed affairs, like a high tea service.
If you are looking for a few souvenirs, you can find interesting gifts at The Shoppes at Rose Hall. Half Moon Shopping Village may also be worth visiting, and the downtown Craft Market houses homemade items like straw hats and bags.
