With lulling turquoise waves lapping powdery white beaches, some of the Caribbean’s finest duty-free shopping and a raucous “Hip Strip,” Montego Bay, Jamaica, leaves little to be desired from this island paradise city. MoBay, as the locals call it, hosts Jamaica’s largest airport and cruise port, which allows for a constant influx of leisure visitors and business travelers. As the tourism capital of Jamaica, this city is a pleasant balance of laid-back and breezy island atmosphere and a pumped-up nightlife and reggae music scene.
Running parallel to the beach and the driving force behind Montego Bay’s popularity is Gloucester Avenue – the “Hip Strip.” The strip is home to some of the best waterfront dining spots in Jamaica, serving Caribbean and international cuisine and boasting dazzling views of the bay. The bay not only provides for pristine beaches, but miles of coral reef and a vast marine park that can be explored and admired while snorkeling or partaking in the many available water sports. In addition to checking out the natural beauty of this port city, Montego Bay offers a plethora of attractions and entertainment options from reggae clubs and Rastafarian art galleries, to gaming lounges and endless tax-free shopping.
