Whether you’re a couple looking for a getaway or you’re single and just looking to mingle, there’s one place you should definitely consider: Jamaica. Luxury hotel accommodation just a stroll from the beach, golden shores and azure waters – this is just the beginning of a dreamy holiday adventure!
When it comes to romance, there’s nothing quite like Jamaica. Luxury hotel brochures with images of cocktails shot against sunsets, and silhouettes of happy couples in the distance holding hands are actually true to life here. Here are a few ways to have a romantic time on the island, at any hour of the day.
The phrase “Jamaica Sunrise” is famous, and you can see why for yourself on the beaches of Jamaica. Luxury hotel accommodations with their own private beaches are not uncommon, but even if yours doesn’t stretch to this, it’s always easy to get to a beach. Relax on the pure white sands as you watch the sun rise and cast a golden glow over the island – it’s a perfect setting for romance.
Being up with the sun has other advantages too. Fancy a romantic swim with dolphins? It’s best done in the early morning, although it can be an all-day affair in places like Ocho Rios’ Dolphin Cove. Resort tours often include this must-see attraction, but you can set out on your own as well to enjoy the amazing features of this great site.
You can also embark on a sailing adventure from cove to cove early in the morning and, in fact, this is the ideal time. Stop off for some diving and snorkelling in the amazingly crystal-clear waters as the day goes on, and explore deserted beaches at your leisure.
Lunch is the perfect time to enjoy the island’s colourful culture on a plate. Standard fare is jerk chicken, Jamaican patties, escovitch and much, much more. Jamaica luxury hotel fare can include many of the island’s authentic flavours, but if you set out on your own, you’ll discover more – and you’ll get to meet the locals as well. Scotchie’s in Mo’ Bay is one of the places you must experience, with its mouth-wateringly aromatic foil-wrapped bundles of pork, chicken or sausage.
Just as sunrises are beautiful here, so, too, are the sunsets. It may sound like a clich?, but if you’ve ever spent time gazing at the fiery Jamaican sky as the sun goes down with a special someone, you’ll know why it’s become the visual synonym for romance. A veranda overlooking the beach is the perfect setting for sunset gazing, but if you feel like mingling, try popular hangouts like Rick’s Caf?, where both locals and visitors enjoy great food and drink from what is arguably the best vantage on the island.
Of course, if we’re talking romance, we can’t forget the evenings. The island’s many fine restaurants are perfect for intimate dinners for two, while for those looking to hang out with friends or meet new ones, the local clubs and pubs are great places to chill, enjoy music and dance the night away.
