The tropical, enduring appeal of Montego Bay



Served by its own very nearby airport (the Caribbean's biggest and busiest), the third largest city in Jamaica (as well as the English-speaking Caribbean, with a population of around 110,000), MoBay has since the 1960s been an anchor of Jamaica's tourism industry, and one of the island's most visited spots, as well as a very popular cruise port of call. Located in the island's northwest, the city's main draw remains the gorgeous, white-sand beaches with tranquil, aquamarine waters fringed by lush palm trees and lined with various hotels and resorts from modest to ultra-luxe. Top strands include Doctor's Cave Beach (below) along Gloucester Avenue (the name coming from a cave once used by a physician to treat respiratory ailments); Dump Up Beach, downtown and especially popular with locals; and Montego Beach, about a mile from downtown.
