What's the distance between St. Ann's Bay and Runaway Bay? How far is Runaway Bay from Ocho Rios?
ANSWER: by Wellesley
The distance between St. Ann's Bay and Runaway Bay, both in the parish of St. Ann, is approximately 17.1km.
That's about 21 minutes with normal driving and normal traffic situations.
The distance between Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios is 27km or 35 minutes.
I'm so happy you asked this question though as I can finally respond in writing, so others can benefit.
Can I be honest with you?
I was so upset with many of the information I see proliferating on the internet. Online is a great place, but you have to be careful.
I actually reviewed quite a few websites myself and I tell you many of them are not just inaccurate, but false. I wonder where they got their information from.
How do I know?
OK. I referred to places I know, frequent and even where I live!
I saw for example, where one website has that it takes 17km from Bethel Town to Bluefields in Westmoreland, and that by the way, is a route I frequent, but that is so far off.
It actually takes 32km at minimum!
Use Google Maps
It is by far the most accurate tool I see around now. I use it quite frequently as well.
Not only does it provide GPS tracking for you. You can simply just enter your FROM and To
destinations and it will provide you the distance as well as the approximate time.
It is this technology I use to get around when I go to unfamiliar places here. I've included the Google Map tool below, scroll below
