Things to do in  Montego Bay

Welcome to Montego Bay

Perched on Jamaica’s northeast coast on the shores of the Caribbean Sea, Montego Bay is a magnet for travelers seeking rest and relaxation near the water. All-inclusive resorts abut the rough and tumble downtown of ‘Mo’Bay,’ filled with jerk joints, souvenir shops, and British colonial architecture. The white sand beaches and turquoise waters are the main draws, offering boundless opportunities for snorkeling, parasailing, and cruising on a catamaran. And Jamaica’s scenic North Coast Highway runs through Montego Bay, providing an artery for striking out on popular day tours to Dunn’s River Falls, Ocho Rios, or Negril.
