Halfway between the famed Dunn’s River Falls of Ocho Rios and the historic town of Falmouth you’ll find Runaway Bay, Jamaica, a lush tropical paradise. Whether you are planning a quiet and romantic getaway, or just fun, sun, and adventure, you’ll love the gorgeous views, white sand beaches, sunny weather, and easy, laid-back attitude. Enjoy an intimate trip for two in a beautiful rental home, or a quality family holiday in a beachfront house. There are many activities from water sports, to golf, to spas, restaurants, and more. A Runaway Bay holiday rental is a beautiful, quiet, and exotic Caribbean getaway.
Snorkeling is really fun and colorful off the coast of Runaway Bay, as the reefs are close to shore and the waters are full of tropical fish. Canyon Wall is a must-see spot for divers, as well as a number of other protected dive sites with sunken boats. Awesome beach and snorkel is just a few sandy footsteps from your villa rental.
Explore the Green Grotto Cave Complex, play a great round of golf at the Breezes Runaway Bay Golf Club, or go horseback riding at Chukka Caribbean Adventures.
In neighboring Ocho Rios, climb the guided Dunn’s River Falls waterfall walk. The falls are a slow climb and lots of fun, but you should be in good walking shape as you’ll be covering some slippery stones under the water. Be sure to bring sneakers or good water shoes, and your swimsuit.
Take a day trip to nearby, historic Falmouth for a unique and relaxing way to spend the afternoon. Take a bamboo raft down the river and sail by the unique, local river and fishing life. When in town, enjoy shopping for local crafts and the colonial architecture. On your way back to your holiday rental stop off at a local jerk chicken vendor so that you can enjoy the flavor and aroma all the way home. From your Runaway Bay holiday rental, relax in the Caribbean sun with quiet coves, endless peaceful sun-kissed beaches and shady hammocks. The combination of white sands and sapphire waters will make you want to stay in Jamaica forever.
