Ocho Rios Shore Excursions

Ocho Rios Beach

Ocho Rios Beach

Ocho Rios Beach (also called Turtle beach or UDC beach) is to your left as you walk off the cruise pier. It’s a lovely sweep of golden sand, which shelves gently into crystal clear waters. Nearby is Margaritaville, a popular stop after a couple of hours lounging about on the beach.


Crafts Market

Crafts Market

Just behind Ocho Rios Beach you’ll find the Crafts Market, a jumble of colorful stalls selling everything Jamaican, including wood carvings, straw hats, jewelry, Blue Mountain coffee, rasta beanie hats and items decorated with shells.


Mahogany Beach

Mahogany Beach

Mahogany Beach is a smaller and quieter alternative to the main Ocho Rios beach. There’s a small beach bar behind the sand, perfect for a light lunch. Mahogany Beach is situated at the eastern end of Mallards Bay, about a mile from the cruise port. Walk east along Main street, and turn left after Bibibip’s Bar & Grill.


Dunn's River Falls

Dunn's River Falls

Dunn’s River Falls is Jamaica’s number one tourist attraction, so expect large noisy crowds and lots of insistent hawkers and vendors. But it’s great fun climbing up through pools, rapids, and waterfalls of cold clear mountain river water. Be sure to wear a pair of old sneakers to protect your feet and stop you from slipping. The falls are located by the coast just two miles north west of Ocho Rios.


Mystic Mountain Rainforest Park

Mystic Mountain Rainforest Park

Mystic Mountain Rainforest Park is set in verdant tropical jungle on the hill overlooking Ocho Rios. From the parking lot you are whisked 700ft upwards on a ski-style chairlift through the tree canopy to the top of Mystic Moutain. Here you can plunge down the hill on Bobsled Jamaica, a 3000ft long white-knuckle ride with a difference.
