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.

Lovely apartment and great views!

4 of 5
This apartment is great! Decorated in cool Caribbean modern colours. Mr William's attention to detail in every room accommodates for everyone's needs; from WiFi, TV's, music, board games. Greeted by the beautiful scenery, where each morning I said 'good morning Jamaica' to the mountains, whilst in the evening we enjoyed a flow of ready-made ice with rum and ginger-beer in the hammock. I travelled with my children 4 and 8, my partner, my mother and I was joined by my sister and my niece, 17. Eunice the housekeeper is a very nice lady. The owner is also great and consensus of client needs, like double checking if transport was needed from the airport before travelling to Jamaica. The apartment is in St Ann’s, outside Ocho Rios which made travelling more expensive since the nearest shop is a 20-25-minute walk. The pool and the playground were nice. Make sure you either have a car or someone to take you places. We felt safe with on-site 24-hour security. We had a wonderful time. Thanks again for your great home comforts Mr Williams!
