Falmouth Walking Tour

You can pick up a self-guided Falmoouth Walking Tour map at the cruise terminal, or join an organized excursion. Falmouth is the Caribbean’s best preserved Georgian town - popular stops on a walking tour include: the Court House (actually mostly a rebuild), much regarded for its fine architecture, the Post Office, originally a storehouse, Tharp House, home of a wealthy merchant – the house has its own wharf, and St Peters Anglican church, which boasts magnificent stained glass windows. All the major sights feature excellent signage which bring color to the history of the property. It’s an easy stroll from the cruise terminal into the town.


Red Stripe Beach

Red Stripe Beach

White Bay (also known as Bounty Bay), just 3 miles east of the cruise terminal, boasts the best beaches in the area. The most popular with cruisers is Red Stripe Beach, operated as a shore excursion option by Royal Caribbean. The more adventurous can take a taxi to public Burwood beach at the eastern end of the bay.


Good Hope Great House

Good Hope Great House

A visit to Good Hope Great House will give you an insight into the area’s 18th century history as a sugar-cane producing center, dependent on slave labor. The plantation house is furnished in period, and gives you a real sense of traveling back in time. Good Hope is a short 20 minute drive on your excursion coach from the cruise terminal.


Martha Brae River

Martha Brae River

Another popular excursion is rafting down the beautiful Martha Brae River. The embarkation area, ‘Rafter’s Village’ is a short (3 mile) journey inland from the cruise port. Board your bamboo raft, then enjoy the leisurely float downstream, finally disembarking at Martha’s Rest.
