Pastel-colored houses line cobblestone streets and a white-sand beach at Braco Village Hotel & Spa, which was modeled after an old-fashioned Jamaican village. Gingerbread architecture, noted for its decorative verandas, conveys the island spirit—as do the slew of palm-shaded hammocks found along the shoreline. At night the plaza glows under string lights while street musicians serenade diners. And the activity doesn’t stop at sundown—the resort's disco pulsates with island rhythms well into the night.
Much of Braco’s activity centers on the town square, which is lined with boutiques, restaurants, and a sidewalk café. The sprawling facilities include a pair of pools with swim-up bars, and courts for tennis, beach volleyball, and basketball. Nonmotorized land and watersports come with this all-inclusive package, but for an additional fee you can go scuba diving or rent golf equipment to play on the nearby 18-hole course.
Among the five gourmet restaurants, your best bet for local flavor will come at One Love, which serves jerk chicken and other Jamaican staples. Other cuisines range from teppanyaki-style dishes and sushi at Akai to fresh Italian pastas at Mezzaluna.
Rooms face either the ocean or the tropical gardens, and all include a terrace or balcony for enjoying the views or serenading a star-crossed lover.
Trelawny, Jamaica: White-Sand Beaches and Tropical Forests Close to Montego Bay
Thanks to its position on Jamaica’s northwest coast, Trelawny is less than an hour away from many of the island’s top attractions. The waters near Montego Bay are famous for their dive sites and deep caves that are frequented by barracudas and nurse sharks. Montego Bay, the heart of Jamaica's tourism industry, features a lively entertainment district packed with reggae clubs and beach bars.
But Trelawny has all the staples of an island getaway for those with a more relaxed itinerary. The beaches are pristine and calm, with crystal-clear waters ideal for kayaking and snorkeling. Heading a bit inland, you'll find ambling hiking trails that wend over hills and into the tropical forests of the Cockpit Country, one of the largest remaining Jamaican wildernesses.
