Carnival celebrations in Jamaica
Every year an explosion of celebrations take place across the island, from boozy spring break parties to Rastafarian revelries and electrifying music festivals – there’s always something happening here! We recommend checking out Jamaica Carnival – which kicks off in April 2020 – for a week of huge street parties, extravagant costumes and bongo drum beats.
The legendary Luminous Lagoon
Discover the enchanting luminescent waters of the Luminous Lagoon, one of Jamaica’s most beautiful secluded spots. This mystical phenomenon can only be found in certain parts of the world, thanks to the magical bioluminescent seawaters below. Watch in wonder as the sea glows and glistens in beautiful shades of neon blues – it truly is a special sight. We’d recommend taking a dip at dusk as this is when the waters look their most mystical!

At this world-famous sunset bar you can plunge into the Caribbean waters from the coastal cliffs, whilst knocking back a can of Red Stripe and getting into the groove with some live reggae tunes.
