Ocho Rios, Jamaica - So Much to See and Do

Ocho Rios is described as the centrepiece of Jamaica given the fact that it boasts a wide array of things to see and do and attracts more visitors annually than any other place on the island. From climbing waterfalls and rocks, to cavorting with friendly dolphins; from lazing away on the beach, to exploring grottos, and rainforest trails; you can do all this and more in Ocho Rios, known by both locals and frequent visitors as "Ochie".

Ocho Rios, the capital of the parish of St. Ann, is the cruise capital of Jamaica, attracting about 350,000 people annually. This ‘see and do’ capital of Jamaica offers more soothing beaches, rivers with dramatic cascades, fine restaurants, fun sports, golf and other activities than any where else in the Caribbean. While Ocho Rios doesn’t really have eight rivers, it definitely has countless beautiful gardens and waterfalls. In fact, Jamaicans call St Ann the Garden Parish where every square foot of ground is covered in rich greenery.

Christopher Columbus described Ocho Rios as ‘more beautiful than the Moorish gardens of Valencia’.  About midway along the island’s North Coast, lush mountain sides join the cobalt blues of the Caribbean Sea. Countless little bays and coves define the winding coast, edged by coral reefs.  From one way to the other, sidewalks are lined with boutiques, duty-free shops and interesting places to eat. Vendors push carts through traffic, selling fresh peanuts, ladies braid the hair of visitors, artists pitch their paintings, carvings and baskets - there is never a dull moment in Ocho Rios.

Explore the attractions in Ocho Rios easily and conveniently from Jamaica apartments, with studios, one bedroom and two bedroom units in Turtle Beach Apartments  and other Ocho Rios Apartments at Carib Ocho Rios and Sandcastles.
