It’s winter, so maybe I am trending a bit on the beach photos, no? Nothing like a tiny island in the Caribbean. Lime Cay is a short boat ride from Port Royal, Kingston, and really the best bet for a nice beach in the Kingston area. It’s a wooded strip of sand and coral about 380 meters long and never more than 80 across. If you’ve already done the Bob Marley Museum, this is not a bad place to get away from it all. Sort of — it can be quite popular due to its proximity, and you can find a few makeshift bars serving drinks there as well as fresh oyster vendors (with hot sauce naturally). So depending on when you go, it is either pristine and totally laid-back or even “secluded,” or overrun with boats – both local rides and private yachts – and more of a party setting. I lucked out and was sharing the tiny cay with just a dozen or so. You could rent a jet ski to get here in about 15 minutes or join others on a frequently running shared boat.
If you are into the natural beauty of the Caribbean, then Jamaica river rafting is a must. Also, I once did a round-the-island trip to inspect about 80 hotels. Check out my five favorite hotels in Jamaica.
Go here for holidays to Florida.
