rocklands bird sanctuary


Sheree said, "Never before had I experienced such a peaceful and serene environment like that of the Rockland’s Bird Sanctuary! Just to be surrounded by birds and trees, looking out on the most breathtaking view of the city of Montego Bay, there really is nothing like it!

For me, this is therapy! And if you love birds and nature, this is the perfect place for you. 

The tour starts with a history of the attraction but before the guides get into it, chances are there will be a few doctor birds roaming over your head ready to sit on your fingers to have their nectar!

New! You may also watch the video of our first trip to the beautiful Rocklands Bird Sanctuary (below).



Nine Miles is the birth place of our late great reggae superstar, Bob Marley and is also his final resting place.
