Tour Details
Day 1
Somerset Falls

Somerset Falls is an ideal getaway for a memorable picnic in paradise. The breath-taking waterfall is hidden in the rainforest, where the Daniels River plunges down a narrow gorge. Here, you can settle in for a lovely day of sunning, relaxing and bathing in picture-perfect deep rock pools.

If you like waterfalls, this is definately the place to go. Waterfall after waterfall and a great place to swim. This property was occupied by Spanish settlers over 400 years ago and many of the original aqueducts and dams built by them are still visible today. 

The Daniels River cascades down through a lush garden of ferns, heliconias, lilies, and crotons into glistening teardrop black pools. Visitors have to negotiate some steep, twisty steps to get here.

The entrance fee includes a too-short guided tour through a grotto by boat to the Hidden Fall, which tumbles 10m into a jade-colored grotto. Bring a swimsuit to enjoy the large swimming area.

Frenchmans Cove

The beach at Frenchman’s Cove is one of Jamaica’s most beautiful places. Surrounded on both sides by vegetated rocky cliffs, the stunning contrast between the green forests and cerulean sky and ocean make this place truly special. The filmsLord Of The Flies and Knight And Day was filmed on the beach, showcasing both the beauty and wildness of the area. It is located on the eastern side of the island in Portland parish, far from the busy tourist towns like Ocho Rios and Montego Bay. While you’re nearby, make sure to check out Blue Lagoon, another of Jamaica’s most beautiful spots.

The legendary Frenchman’s Cove Resort has been entertaining celebrities for decades. Guests can enjoy the villas and facilities which are set amidst lush gardens and mere steps away from the beach.

Travelers spend time relaxing on the soft, sandy, golden beach, swimming in the calm azure blue waters, or catching the sea salt spray on one of the swings set along the riverbank, lined with wild mango trees.

During the 1960s, Port Antonio became the mecca of the jet set. Garfield Weston built a sumptuous hotel with 18 luxury villas shrouded by discreet shrubbery and scattered over the headlands on both sides of the river, beach and bay. This is a beautiful beach where the river flows right into the ocean. There are swings all along the riverbank that look just like a postcard. The beach really is gorgeous, there are all amenities on site, a small restaurant as well as wild mango trees.

Important Details
  • For guests who are not staying on the resort a fee is payable for access to the private beach.
  • The beach is open from 9:00 til 17:00.
  • For adults beach entry is $12 USD and for children under 12 $6 USD. 
  • It is not permitted for guests to bring food and drink to Frenchman’s Cove beach.

• Swimming is not permitted beyond the demarcation rope
• No swimming before 8:30 and after 18:00

Day 2
Blue Lagoon

The waters that launched Brooke Shields’ movie career are by any measure one of the most beautiful spots in Jamaica. The lagoon was once called “The Blue Hole,” but with the popularity of the movie, the lagoon’s name was permanently changed to “The Blue Lagoon.”

The water seems to have a bit of magic to it, as the color changes throughout the day, depending upon the way the sun shines upon the surface. When you first arrive, the water can look turquoise but you may notice that during your boat ride, the water changes to a deeper sapphire or even royal blue.

Note that if it’s been raining heavily, runoff water from the hills turns the lagoon a disappointing murky green.

It is the most famous place in Portland. They say that the lagoon is bottomless and that a sort of dragon is hidden there.

In the reality Blue Lagoon is an enchanting spot with blue deep water, a spring of fresh water and a well known restaurant where you can dine eating food served on banana leaves.

Chicken, fish, lobster, spicy and grilled with a special taste and flavour. You must try the Blue Lagoon cocktail and you won’t forget it!! In the day it is possible to take a dip from its platform or snorkel and get a boat ride. 

The water in Blue Lagoon is a mix of fresh water and salt water, as the lagoon is open to the sea and fed by freshwater springs. If you decide to take a dip in the lagoon, you’ll notice the alternating temperatures (the warmth of the Caribbean Sea and the icy cold waters of the underground streams), which is quite an experience.

Most people who visit Blue Lagoon say that it is an extremely interesting and beautiful place to visit. The boat tours are well worth the cost, which is around $30US. 

What to Bring:

While visiting the Blue Lagoon, you want to bring as little as possible. If you decide to swim, you’ll need to stash your stuff somewhere and wouldn’t want to risk losing valuable items.

  • Camera
  • Towels
  • Pocket Money
  • Always travel with insect repellent.

 

Distance:

From Montego Bay, it will take approximately 4 hours.

Reach Falls

Reach Falls was discovered by runaway slaves from plantations in the neighboring parish of St Thomas who sought refuge in the hills of the John Crow mountains. Reach Falls is a luxurious eco attraction hidden in the Montane Forrest on the John Crow Mountain Range.  

The attraction offers a unique blend of comfort, relaxation, and adventure. Reach Falls is centered on an exotic waterfall cascading down a rock face into an emerald river pool. The lush greenery from the Montane Forrest and the refreshing pool beneath the cascading waterfall promises a memorable experience. Reach Falls offers the opportunity to enjoy the cascading waterfall, a picnic area, and a guided tour upstream of the Driver’s River (which feeds the waterfall) featuring a visit inside our legendary underwater cave.
 
Reach Falls has over 23 species of ferns and it is nestled in the Montane Forrest of the John Crow Mountains which is home to a variety of birds, including the black, and yellow-billed parrots.
 
Reach Falls has been featured in Hollywood films including Tom Cruise’s Cocktails and the remake of Lord of the Flies.
 
If visitors are lucky they may catch a glimpse of a wild pig trotting across the mountain. Reach Falls features a natural heart-shaped jacuzzi which invigorates the body with every stroke from the water rushing through the channel.

What to bring:
swimwear, water shoes, towel, camera, and credit card/cash
