So you’ve just wrapped up your dip in the ocean alongside some sea turtles, or maybe you spent the day teeing off at the luxurious golf resort in George Town. Either way, prepare yourself for another day of adventure because Falmouth, Jamaica has so much to offer travelers. Check out the top things to do when in Falmouth!
From reggae bands to secluded waterfalls, Falmouth is positively “irie” (pleasing). Head to Chukkah Beach for a shoreside horseback ride, or get your culture fix during high tea at Good Hope Estate. And no trip is complete without jerk chicken and rum cake.
CLIMB A WATERFALL
Take an excursion to Ocho Rios to experience the famous Dunn’s River Falls. Follow your guide as you ascend to the top of the iconic waterfall. Be sure to plunge in the many natural pools as you make your way to the top!
“This is such a fantastic attraction and one of the highlights of Jamaica. The falls themselves are so beautiful in tropical setting and with a beautiful exotic beach at the bottom! The climb up the falls is definitely a must it can be hard work but its so fun as you all hold hands and go up together with such amazing guides your always safe the only pain coming from laughing too much! Once at the top it is so rewarding with a truly beautiful view and feeling of accomplishment.”

TUBIN’ & CRUISIN’
Head to one of the many nearby rivers and ride down on an inner tube. As you cruise down the river, enjoy all the natural beauty that Jamaica has to offer.
Just a few miles from Falmouth, Burwood Beach is a quiet and secluded swath of shoreline that’s perfect for some off-the-beaten-path beachcombing.
“If you’re looking for a no-frills, non-touristy, local beach Burwood Beach is as good as it gets. There’s a rustic/rudimentary bar close by you can buy beer and sodas at a reasonable price. There’s no food or fancy anything. Just a very relaxing day at a picture-perfect beach. I would absolutely go there again.”

When it comes to jerk cooking, nowhere does it better than Jamaica. The same goes for their world-famous Jamaican patties— savory pastries usually stuffed with beef and spices. Be sure to pair your lunch with Jamaica’s Red Stripe lager, brewed locally since 1939. If you’re craving caffeine, have a cup of Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee— it’s rated among the best in the world.
The Shoppes at Rose Hall offer the best duty-free shopping in Jamaica. Here you’ll find plenty of luxury goods, fine watches, designer jewelry, and locally made island crafts and souvenirs.
