Adventures & Activities:

Monday & Friday: Shuttle to Reggae Beach, an incredibly beautiful, secluded, and generally quiet beach. Snacks, drinks, chairs and snorkeling equipment available for rent. Reggae Beach is not a tourist beach. It's popular with Jamaicans, making for a more “authentic” Jamaican atmosphere.

Wednesday: A trip to the neighboring estate and artist residence Mt. Plenty. Enjoy a property tour, traditional Jamaica afternoon tea and a cool dip at the stunning source of the White River, so named because the limestone rocks give the water a white, milky color.
