Montego Bay & the Northwest Highlights

Richmond Hill: With the best view over Mobay -- and a hotel, bar, and restaurant rich in history and ambience -- this is a choice spot for a sunset cocktail.

Gallery of West Indian Art: Not only does it have an excellent collection of Jamaican work, but there are Cuban and Haitian paintings as well.

Rose Hall Great House: There's perhaps no great house as ominous and grand, and the spirit of White Witch Annie Palmer can still be felt.

Greenwood Great House: One of the most beautiful and true-to-its-day estate houses in Jamaica, it played a central role in the island's sugar history.

Doctors Cave Beach: Center stage on Mobay's Hip Strip, this is the best spot to see and be seen on weekends. It's also the site of monthly full-moon parties.

Falmouth: Considered one of the world's best examples of a Georgian town, it's changed little from its boom years at the height of the island's sugar trade.

Queen of Spain Valley: Home to a 810-hectare citrus plantation, ceramics studio, and luxury retreat, it's worth every bit of bad road covered on the way.
