Top Attractions in St Thomas


The eastern end of the Jamaica is just as exciting as the southern and northern end of the island and boasts many attractions for tourists and nationals alike.

Let us take a tour of St. Thomas in the east and discover its offerings.

The 10-miles bridge in Bull Bay connects the parish to its neighboring parishes of Kingston and St Andrew. Journeying along one will find the Sun Coast Adventure Park located in Twelve Miles area, just east of Bull Bay.

Driving deeper where the road, a straight drive that takes us deeper into the parish, transcends highlands and lowlands making our first stop in Yallahs where one can enjoy great night life and by day take a hike through the green hills of the Yallahs River Valley or visit the twin salt ponds which used to serve as one of Jamaica’s source of table salt just outside of the town of Yallahs.

Next stop is Morant Bay, a major town in St. Thomas known for its vibrancy almost twenty-four hours of the day, with the road way lined with pan-cooking filled with jerk pork and jerk chicken. Soup cooked up Jamaican style is also ranked high on the list.

The market is a lively one boasting all the fruits and other products fit for a king.

Top on the list of places to visit is the Morant Bay Courthouse which is one of the island’s historical buildings and bears the statue of one of our National Heroes, Paul Bogle in front of it.

To the back of the court yard is
the grave holding Paul Bogle’s remains and also the fort which was built in the late 1700’s. One can also visit the oldest lighthouse in the island which was built in 1841 overlooking a small group of islands on a coral reef off the coast of Jamaica known as the Morant Keys.

The Lyssons Beach is also a place to get a relaxing swim as one travels into the parish. Along the road way travelling further into the parish along the Rozelle main road is a natural waterfall where both tourists and natural can be seen enjoying a bath under the fountain which gushes from the rocks above.

Across from the waterfall is a lovely spread of Rozelle Beach fit for surfing. Notably also are the other beaches found in the parish, namely Prospect Beach, Holland Bay Beach and Rocky Point Beach.

Needing a place to relax, overnight and enjoy nature? Bath Fountain and Spa with its natural healing concepts and nature at its best is a must experience for visitors to the parish.

The Bath Botanical Garden is also a place to regain ones composure and enjoy the ambiance. Other must experience places in St. Thomas are Mezzgar’s Run Beach, South Haven Beach, Retreat Beach, and linking the parish with it neighbor, Portland, are Maroon Trail Cunha Cunha Pass and the guided tours of The Blue Mountains.

Make your next stop a St. Thomas excursion as it is guaranteed a rewarding and breathtaking stop for both nationals and tourists alike

New Establishment in Bath - "ITEENS"
by: Anonymous

Also a new establishment opposite the Botanical Gardens - "Iteens" a lovely bar and restaurant run by the exhuberant English woman Iteen is where you'll get great service and a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of those wanting to give you a 'rub down' at the Fountain - lol

by: Courtney

This is one of Jamaica's first Botanical Garden very original and not too far from the natural hot spa, the Bath Fountain where you can relax and chill out.

Let's say cool runnings.
