The golden hues of the setting sun form the perfect backdrop for a romantic evening at the Negril Cliffs. Though not recommended or endorsed by local businesses, this is a great place to dive into the pristine waters of the Caribbean Sea but only if you are both expert divers. You will be joined by several local youths who perform incredible acrobatic stunts to the amusement of those around them. Please note that you engage in this activity at your own risk.

2. Swim with Dolphins

Arguably the most romantic activity of all, rafting on the Martha Brae takes you on a nice, easy trip down the most peaceful river in Jamaica.

Located just outside of Montego Bay in the town of Falmouth, the luminous lagoon is so called for the millions of microscopic organisms that glow to light up the water at night. Take a romantic boat ride and observe the natural beauty or jump into the waters and take a swim to observe the spectacle up close.

5. Go hiking or biking in the Blue Mountains

For one of the most breathtaking sceneries in Jamaica, take a hike or bike up the Blue Mountains and explore the home of the world’s best coffee. The trek along the narrow path is usually done in the early morning to catch the magnificent sunrise peeking over the mountain top. The seven-hour journey is a rich ecological diversity of indigenous plants and spectacular views of the city of Kingston and the St. Thomas’ coastline.
