Make a holiday rental home or villa in Runaway Bay, Jamaica your home away from home

Jamaica is one of the world’s most desired holiday destinations, and the picturesque North Coast is where many of the top tourist accommodation and attractions lie. Ideally positioned in the centre of the north coast within touching distance of both Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, Runaway Bay is a town in the Saint Ann Parish which offers plenty for any visitor, with its excellent beaches and activities in the blue of the Caribbean Sea framed to a stunning mountain backdrop.

Things to do in Runaway Bay, Jamaica

Once a satellite town of nearby Ocho Rios, Runaway Bay is now a popular destination in its own right, with many of the same attractions but less of the crowds of its more famous neighbour. This includes a big white sandy public beach, as well as several private stretches. Ocean View Beach is an example of such a private beach, and offers excellent sunbathing and swimming, as well as showering facilities and bar/snack shops. A small entry fee is charged.

Plenty of bars and restaurants can all be found in and around the area, with the main difference being that Runaway Bay nightlife is more laid-back and less hectic than some of the other nearby resorts, making for a laid-back but fun atmosphere in the evenings. At the other end of the scale, the open-minded may wish to consider the famous Hedonism III nudist resort, an adults-only resort which is built on 10 acres and has a liberal attitude to almost every vice going.

Breezes Championship Golf Course, Bamboo river rafting, catamaran cruises and helicopter tours are just some of the various other options than can be pursued in and arund Runaway Bay.

A great range of tourist facilities make Ocho Rios the second most visited destination in the country and a must-see for any holidaymaker.

Beautiful home with a top notch staff. The layout of the home was very spacious for a large family with a lovely cabana and additional private areas. Our meals were delicious and beautifully served.
