Runaway Bay



Another of the resort areas lining Jamaica's north coast, Runaway Bay is 65 mi/105 km northwest of Kingston and home to lots of hotels (mostly all-inclusives) and villas, but it does not feel overrun by tourists.

The primary travel attraction is Runaway Caves and Green Grotto. Miles/kilometers of passages in these caves are said to have served as hideouts for pirates, runaway slaves and the Spanish colonists who were being pursued by the English after the British invasion of the island. The caverns have extraordinary stalactites and stalagmites.

There are also excellent golf, polo and horseback-riding facilities nearby.
