The Glistening Waters Attraction In Trelawny, Jamaica

Essentially 'what are the top attractions in trelawny', that's what my kingston-based friend Cherryl wanted to find out. And I was excited to share!
Here's her question.


I would like to know the beaches, places of interests and waterfalls in Trelawny - moreso, the beaches :)

RESPONSE: by Wellesley

Hi Cherryl,
Absolutely! Great question, thanks for asking!

For years, Trelawny was a no-name on the tourist agenda schedule, but not anymore!

The new cruise ship port in Falmouth which has been generating a buzz of economic activity, especially on cruise ship days is forcing many to take a second look at this rich treasure.

As a Jamaican, I hope you already know that Falmouth's georgian architecture is one of the most prized, not only in Jamaica, but the Caribbean!

Did you? Oh yes,it is considered the best preserved!
So the entire falmouth town is an attraction in itself!

Outside of that though, there are several other great places to check out, some for exciting adventure and other for education.

Those that comes quickly to mind are...

  1. The newly refurbished Burwood Beach, just outside of Falmouth on the main. Its a beach lovers paradise!

  2. The Hampden Estate's rum tour. The Hampden estate is one of the oldest in Jamaica.

  3. River Tubing at Rio Bueno!

  4. Charles Swaby’s Swamp Crocodile Swamp Safari

  5. The Glistening Waters Attraction

  6. Rafting on the Martha Brae

  7. Great House tours, including the Good Hope Great House

  8. The Heritage Walk, where you explore the rich history of the town.

    Notable stops are the Albert George Market, The Water Square, The Baptist Manse, remains of the Barrett's house and the Vermont house, where the Post Office is now located, and finally...

  9. The new popular Falmouth Food Tour offered by the Janet and Anne Crick.

So no notable waterfalls identified there (yet), but there is more than enough 'edutain' you!

Of course, if not yet done, be sure to explore these, what I consider, the top places to visit in Jamaica.
