Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Port Maria, Jamaica Your Home Away From Home

 

Port Maria is the capital town of the St. Mary parish on the beautiful island of Jamaica. Once an important port, the town sits inland from a wonderful horse shoe shaped bay with steep hills as its backdrop. The town is quiet compared to other tourist areas of Jamaica which makes it an ideal location for renting an apartment. You still have access to various outdoor activities in Port Maria, but you are guaranteed to be secluded from the crowds and bustle.

Things to Do on Holiday to Port Maria, Jamaica

Going on a Port Maria holiday is one of the best ways to find peace and relaxation alongside fun and adventure. The town has its own beautiful sandy beach where visitors can enjoy a spot of swimming, sunbathing, diving, snorkelling, sailing and fishing. Other activities available in the town include cycling and hiking, thanks to the hilly areas above the bay of Port Maria.

One must-see when on holiday in Port Maria is Firefly, the holiday home on Jamaica of the famous playwright Noel Coward. The house is now a museum and Noel Coward’s final resting place. Firefly was built on a high point above the town which was once the look-out point for the pirate Henry Morgan. Not only is Firefly one of the best places to get stunning views of the town and the sea, it is a perfect subject for those who are keen on painting, drawing or photography.

Places to Visit on Holiday to Port Maria, Jamaica

No trip to the wonderful island of Jamaica would be complete without venturing further a field to the capital city of Kingston. If you can tear yourself away from your wonderful Port Maria accommodation, you will find culture, music and Jamaican history in abundance. Fans of the legendary Bob Marley should make a stop at the museum in the city, which was the star’s former home. There is a lot of information to be found here including a tour of the museum and a film about Marley’s life.

Nature lovers will want to visit the Hope Botanical Gardens which not only provide peace and tranquillity away from the centre of the city, but a collection of immaculately green lawns and sprawling palm trees. Adjoining the gardens is Hope Zoo where you will find many animals including crocodiles, flamingos, zebras, lions, gazelles and the Jamaican Fruit Bat.

Weather in Port Maria, Jamaica

Port Maria lies on the coast but is 1,000 metres above sea level which means that it is slightly cooler than other areas on the island. The warmest months are between May and September.

Visitors should note that Jamaica is within the hurricane and earthquake belts although these incidents rarely occur.

Oceanfront family friendly villa

5 of 5
The villa which had a pool area offering views of the ocean and surrounding lush vegetation. It was set up with an indoor outdoor living feel. It felt casual enough to not worry about children touching things or making a mess at all. The staff was wonderful. I will especially say that the villa chef, Ms. Blossom and her assistant Charnette were the most helpful, amazing and accommodating team. We worked closely with them every day to supply a Gluten free, vegan, and child friendly menu as well as traditional for each of the 22 guests in our party. With every meal being absolutely delicious. The villa had a variety of things to do without leaving the grounds. Most of the bedrooms have ocean views. If you do rent the cottage with the villa you need to know that it is at the very back of the property in a much darker area a distance from the main house. If you are part of a large party it could feel a little disconnected being back there. It does not have ocean views.
