Travel up the coastline east of Port Antonio, where legendary beaches include Frenchmans Cove, Dragon Bay and the Blue Lagoon.

Try the smaller, more bohemian area of Treasure Beach with its old fishing villages and abundant wildlife.
Explore Montego Bay Marine Park in a semi-submarine on an underwater tour or visit the Royal Palm Reserve, Negril's number one eco-tourism attraction, a natural habitat for 114 plant species and more than 300 animal species.
Introduce your children to reggae at any number of outdoor venues in Kingston. Visit the Bob Marley Museum to pay homage to the Hon.

Go to Hellshire beach, a quiet spot most of the week, with horse-riding and watersports, but the place to come party with Jamaican families at weekends.
