Adventure activities in Jamaica

If you are travelling to Jamaica, there is lots that you can do, see, explore and discover on its beaches, mountains, coastline, rainforests and more. Also you can make your trip to the island all the more special by staying in Jamaica rentals such as Silver Sands Villas Jamaica that especially cater to families or groups of friends who wish for some privacy and space to spend quality time together amidst the island’s beautiful surroundings.

If you are an outdoor enthusiast, here are some activities that you can consider.


There are agencies like the Blue Mountain Bicycle Tours Ltd, which offer guided tours to the Blue Mountains, the Caribbean's highest mountain range. These tours give you the perfect opportunities to enjoy the panoramic surroundings and admire the rare flora and fauna. The tranquillity of the surroundings is just what you would look for to detox your mind, body and spirits. Some tours are all-inclusive and also include brunch and a swim in a refreshing waterfall as part of the package.


You can hike up the Blue Mountains and enjoy the views from the peak. The other favourite trails are the ones that lead through the Rio Grande Valley. One of the highlights is the 7-hour White River Falls hike along the banks of the White River. For those who would prefer an easier walk, there is the Scatter Waterfalls that is worth a try.

Horseback riding

Horse back riding is a great way to explore the island’s dramatic and varied landscape. The island’s most well-known equestrian centre is Chukka Caribbean Adventures. The company offers an exciting horseback ride and swim tour that takes you on a guided ride along some scenic routes then finally along a beach where you can ride bareback into the sea.

Scuba diving

Jamaica is also a great destination for those who want to try out water activities. Scuba diving is a great way to explore the underwater world of coral reefs, etched with canyons and grottos with sheer vertical walls. The temperature averages 78-85 degrees with visibility upto 100 feet. The best diving sites on the island can be found in Falmouth, and the marine parks in Montego Bay, Port Antonio and Negril.


Jamaica is a haven for the golf enthusiasts and offers some of the best golf courses in the Caribbean, five of which are to be found in Montego Bay. Montego Bay is at a convenient distance from Silver Sands Villas in Jamaica and so if golf is high on your agenda, you can consider setting base here. These are some of the golf courses you might like to check out: The Cinnamon Hill Ocean Course at Rose Hall Resort & Country Club is ranked among the top-five golf courses in the world. You can also check the North Shore SuperClubs' Runaway Golf Club at Runaway Bay and Sandals Golf & Country Club at Ocho Rios.

Jamaica's varied terrain is its greatest attractions, the beautiful shoreline of the Caribbean, cascading waterfalls, majestic mountain peaks, navigable rivers, caves and grottos leading right into the heart of the mountains. This is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Thanks a lot...
