Jamaica's south coast is just as beautiful as the north and east coasts and boasts many serene vacation spots and stop over destinations for not only the person seeking rest and relaxation, but also those needing a place to host your business meetings, weddings and honeymoons, or just to show the employees that they mean a lot to you.
If it’s a St. Elizabeth vacation that you crave then you could always book a tour of the parish through any one of the many excursion packages offered by different tour facilities in the parish.
The attractions of the south coast are many, ranging from a guided tour of Black River to see the crocodiles or High Street, to tour the house which was the first to get electricity in the island in St. Elizabeth or even to visit the YS Falls for some real fun in the water.
Steal away with your special someone and stay at one of their all-inclusive accommodations, each with its own unique taste of the island.
Be sure to get a taste of the bammy and fried fish at border as well as the piping hot peppered shrimp at Middle quarters in the parish. Be sure to ask about Holland Bamboo avenue.
Westmoreland, another south coast beauty, tantalizes all those who visit the parish and tranquilizes you with its white sand beaches in Negril, in and of itself, boasts many other attractions, both for the young and the young at heart.
The attractions, each with its own unique taste of the parish, leave you with an aura of Jamaica and cause you to want to come again. Be sure to stop at the Bluefield’s Beach and the monument for the late great Peter Tosh in Belmont in the parish.
Journeying along the south coast, one must experience Manchester, known for its many great houses, in all its glory! Another beauty, Manchester is famous for its ortanique fruit and pic-a-pepper sauce among other crops.
Its capital, Mandeville, boasts many of the parish’s attractions that keep you coming back year after year.
Clarendon, another south coast parish, has many tourist attractions, ranging from a visit to the Milk River Bath and Spa, a tour of the Halse Hall Great House, a peek into the Jackson Bay Cave, to relaxing at the Seacrest Beach and Hotel.
Whether leaving the hustle and bustle of Kingston, or planning a Jamaican vacation, Jamaica's south coast is where you will experience paradise.
