‘Don’t Worry About a Thing’ this summer with a family getaway to Jamaica

Soak up fabulous fun for all ages this summer on the sun-kissed Caribbean island

by Adam & Megan

The stunning island of Jamaica is the number-one destination for Brits heading to the Caribbean. From beautiful beaches and breathtaking scenery to diverse activities including soft adventure to fast-paced experiences, Jamaica has it all. The vibrant culture, delicious food, warm and welcoming people and a whole lot of sunshine make it an ideal destination for all the family.


Jamaica is a haven for sand lovers, with options ranging from small idyllic coves to the famous white sand Seven Mile Beach in Negril. With several shallow beaches on the island, even little ones can have a safe paddle. If you’re not staying on the coast, no problem – plan a day trip to a popular public beach such as Doctor’s Cave Beach in Montego Bay, Ocho Rios Bay Beach or the Long Bay Beach Park in Negril. They have lifeguards, beach chairs, showers and authentic Jamaican food. 

Dunns River Falls


With an abundance of activities to choose from, you’re bound to find plenty of things the whole family can do together. The unforgettable Dunns River Falls is a must-see and do – climb this iconic 185-metre-high waterfall and experience its lush surroundings. How about a family catamaran cruise,maybe with a bit of snorkelling included, or a swim at Glistening Waters, a magical fluorescent lagoon that begins to glow at night due to microorganisms in it? Or wouldn’t you like to see some crocodiles in the wild on a sensational J. Charles Swaby’s Black River Safari on the south coast? Don’t forget your camera.

Make awesome memories together during an activity with an adrenaline-pumping wow factor. Visit Mystic Mountain and take in the stunning coastal views from the chairlift; take an exhilarating zipline trip through the forest canopy; or zoom through the jungle on a Jamaican bobsled experience. Alternatively, burn up some energy riding an ATV or dune-buggy along the shoreline or close to a river to get muddy. There are plenty of options available all over the island. In Port Antonio, adventurers can go river rafting on bamboo rafts on the Rio Grande or visit tropical jungle-lined Somerset Falls. 


Imbibe on moreish cuisine that is tasty and appealing to even the fussiest tastebuds. Resorts of course offer a wide variety of cuisines to satisfy most palettes, but for sure cookshops provide plenty of choices, such as the hearty national dish, Ackee and Saltfish, or a succulent beef patty. Jamaica is the birthplace of the Jerk cuisine, so dive into delicious Jerk chicken or Jerk pork at one of the many Jerk spots across the island. Seafood is freshly caught and done to order. There are local fruits aplenty such as bananas, mangos, jackfruit, melon, naseberry, coconuts and much more. Of course everyone will want an ice cream or three – Devon House in, Kingston, is the home of Jamaica’s first black millionaireThe property is home to Devon House I-Scream which serves yummy flavours such as chocolate and mango – and even stout for the grown-ups!


If you need easy budgeting, Jamaica is home to a number of all-inclusive family resorts with prices that include food, extensive kids clubs and a range of activities. Some even have their own waterparks with waterslides and cannons, or include land sports such as beach volleyball, tennis and even rock climbing.
