What to do in Runaway Bay

Runaway Bay is a small coastal town in Jamaica, famous for the Green Grotto Caves, the largest and most accessible caves on the island. Moreover. It also boasts some of the best beaches in the Caribbean.

If you are visiting this side of Jamaica, here are some of the best excursions to do in Runaway Bay. Firstly, we recommend you venture on a Blue Mountain bike tour that allows you to explore a part of the island in a unique way.

If you prefer a tour with a calm pace, you can visit the Bob Marley International Museum, where you will get a fantastic insight into the life and music of the King of Reggae. There are tours in Runaway Bay that, in addition to visiting Nine Mile, the birthplace of this famous artist, include a visit to Dunn's River Falls, where you can climb the most spectacular waterfalls in Jamaica.

Other famous activities in Runaway Bay include swimming with dolphins, diving in the luminous lagoon, driving ATVs, horseback riding, and much more. One of the favorites is sailing into the Caribbean Sea aboard a catamaran, followed by snorkeling to discover the reef’s array of sea life. You will dance during a party cruise to end the day!

Although Runaway Bay may not be as well-known as other places in Jamaica, it is a beautiful area that is worth visiting to experience great adventures, whether with family or friends. Here is a list of the top Runaway Bay excursions selected by Amstar experts:
