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.

Wonderful time inspite fo the rain,

5 of 5
We stayed Jan.6-16/10. Once again Monika and Axel welcomed us with open arms, just like family. They help us with everything from transport to and from the airport and with grocery shopping close by. The trip to the Swiss butcher is an adventure in itself. Sylvie,the housekeeper always puts the final touches on things, like extra pillows for me. Courtney is such a gentleman and checked in with us daily to see if we needed anything, He always stocks the fridge with Red Stripe, you just have to ask. Our tour this time was to Falmouth and Wakefield, I always feel so safe and pampered on the tours they offer. They are personalized, stop when you want and I know they all take such care when driving with us in the vehicle. All I need to do is relax and enjoy. The beach remains as beautiful as I remember and just a close walk away for that little bit of exercise. I love talking to the locals as we walk back and forth, occasionally stopping to bye some fresh produce. I did introduce friends to Axel this time as I would highly recommend you stay at the Rainbow apartment or villa, both are excellent value for the money if you aren't the AI type.
