Fast facts
  • Stunning beaches and year-round calm waters abundant with marine life
  • Secluded ocean retreat with exclusive excursions and luxurious activities
  • Popular location for snorkeling, diving, and golf

A small resort village hidden just west of Ocho Rios in St. Ann’s Parish, the serene landscape of Runaway Bay offers an intimate and exclusive escape from crowds of tourists.  The dazzling white sands of Paradise Beach, considered the most beautiful in Jamaica, give way to calm, blue waters teeming with coral and colorful fish, and provides world-class snorkeling and scuba diving.  The area also boasts some of the best golf around and a complete equestrian centre with horseback riding tours along backcountry trails and through parts of the Caribbean Sea. Take the day to explore the nearby historic Green Grotto Caves that were once used as shelter by ancient Taino Indians and Spanish colonists. The natural beauty and peaceful atmosphere of Runaway Bay make it the perfect ocean retreat.
