Montego Bay Things To Do For A Jamaican Adventure

Montego Bay Things To Do

Montego Bay is so beautiful! I wish I had more time to explore the area. I wasn’t able to really roam like I wanted to because I was there for such a short amount of time. You can visit by cruise, as I did, but you only get a few hours to explore the area. Or you can fly in and stay at an all-inclusive resort.

Montego Bay is such a fun area! Filled with local restaurants and shops, all lining the beach. The landscape is truly unique to the area, I feel like Jamaica in general has its own look, that’s different from other Caribbean areas. In my opinion, Montego Bay is quite small compared to Ochos Rios. Since I was only in Montego for a few hours, I just walked around. Enjoying the little shops, beachfront views, and of course the food. It was a very nice day trip!

Jamacian Food

Jerk Style

Try some local Jamaican food! Jerk chicken is a super popular dish of Jamacia, and SO TASTY! But they had other jerk meats as well. If you are not familiar with the “jerk style” it’s essentially meat covered in spices and then slow-cooked over the fire.

Tropical and Local Fruits

Another thing I would suggest is trying their fruits. There were some that I never even heard of before. Of course, I loved their coconuts were my favorite. I loved sipping on a fresh coconut while walking around. It was super refreshing and totally completed that tropical vibe.

Montego Bay is perfect for those who just want to relax on the sand and take a dip into the water. There’s a beach everywhere you look! I thought that the beaches were super fun. The waves were quite calm, nothing crazy intense. So you could enjoy floating and just playing in the water. There is enough space to sprawl out and just tan.

Luminous Lagoon

Something that I wanted to do, but we did not have enough time for was the Luminous Lagoon. This seems like a fun thing to see and would definitely be memorable. Other travelers really loved this lagoon. I wish I had more time to spend there! The water has a nice bright blue glow due to the plankton.

Explore the Boardwalk

I loved spending my time in Montego Bay just wandering around. I followed the beach and walked through all their little shops. Taking a day trip to the boardwalk is a great way to relax and still see the beauty and more touristy side of this bay. They had some cute shops with handmade items. It was very cool seeing all the art and how the style is so different from what I see in SoCal. The vibrant colors all over the boardwalk created a festive and tropical environment.
