Holidays to Trelawny take you to a region of Jamaica that packs in white sand beaches, verdant rainforests and sugar estates all over. And the capital, Falmouth, has everything you’d want from a modern town.
Thanks to its sugar plantations, tropical rainforests and sublime beaches, a Cruise & Stay holiday to the Jamaican region of Trelawny gives you the chance to discover unique and breathtaking Caribbean island landscapes.
The whole of Jamaica has a chilled-out vibe, but Trelawny, in the north of the island, takes it to a new level. This region has 10 beaches, many of which are quieter than those you'll find near the big cruise resorts of Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. They have all the facilities you'd expect, though: at Burwood Beach, there’s a kite-surfing school to learn an exhilarating new sport and a BBQ shack for snacks afterwards.
The region of Trelawny is home to Cockpit Country, a sprawling expanse of hilly terrain and rainforest. Here you’ll find Jamaica’s richest variety of animal and plant life. To see this rugged scenery of inland Jamaica at its best, drive the little-used road from Clark's Town to Albert Town that winds through tiny Jamaican communities like Kinloss and Barbecue Bottom. You’ll be able to take in some incredible views and see hundreds of wild orchids on the sides of the hills.
The town of Falmouth
Falmouth was once one of the busiest towns of Jamaica, thanks to the booming sugar trade in the 18th century. Today, life in this industrially historic town is more peaceful, but the magnificent Georgian buildings remain and a walking tour of Falmouth will give you a glimpse into its heritage. You can learn how Jamaica’s history has shaped the country over the years.
Natural beauty and wildlife
Why not add some big screen scenery to your Cruise & Stay break? Jamaica's backdrops are stunning enough for Hollywood movies, with some of its famous locations featuring in James Bond films, such as Trelawny's own Falmouth Swamp Safari that featured in 'Live and Let Die'. Thankfully, you don't have to get as close to the local crocodiles as Roger Moore's 007, but you can see them and a whole range of fascinating creatures, including owls and snakes.
