The name “Runaway Bay” was not just pulled out of a hat, and there are interesting reasons of how the town got its name! One theory says the name came about because it was the fleeing point for Spanish soldiers who were escaping the English troops in the 1600s.
Another explanation, and the most accepted, is that the name came about because this was the escape route for runaway slaves, who wanted to leave the Island and depart to Cuba.
Whichever the reason, people are hardly in a hurry to actually run away from Runaway Bay nowadays!
If you are looking for a relaxing, quiet and peaceful beach vacation, where water sports and golf is an option, look no further than this beautiful town!
This town is half an hour away from Ocho Rios, the mecca of Jamaica’s tours and excursions, but you don't have to leave Runaway Bay to have a good time, there are things you can do right there! Runway Bay is home to some.
