The Fan Villa
Best for a Honeymoon in the Jungle
About one mile up the hills from the beaches of Port Antonio is one of the best honeymoon destinations in Jamaica. Surrounded by the lush jungle landscape of the Blue Mountains, The F.an Villa is everything you can dream of.

Jamaica Honeymoon Tips: What You Need to Know
How to Get to Jamaica
The best way to travel to Jamaica is by plane; however, there are ports for cruise lines throughout Jamaica.
The three main airports in Jamaica are Norman Manley International Airport (KIN), Ian Fleming International Airport (O.C.J.), and Sangster International Airport (M.B.J.). These airports will get you close to most Jamaican honeymoon resorts.
It’s a long drive to some more secluded parts of Jamaica, but your driver’s license from most countries is valid for up to three months if you choose to rent a car.
The Best Jamaica Honeymoon Destinations
Many Jamaica honeymoon resorts are only minutes from some of the most incredible destinations on the island. Let’s look at some of our favorite locations and experiences in Jamaica.
Head to Ocho Rios for a fun day to help you remember your honeymoon in Jamaica as truly special. The lively town sits adjacent to the Caribbean Sea and has no shortage of exciting options for ways to spend the day.
While we love to dine and drink at one of many great restaurants here, Ocho Rios offers some of the best nature on the island just steps away.
Blue Hole is an unforgettable mineral spring with brilliant colors you’ll dream about later. Hike up the nearby Dunn’s River Falls & Park and see one of the most memorable waterfalls in Jamaica.
Bob Marley Museum
You can’t honeymoon in Jamaica without listening to the island’s legendary music.
Want a lesson about Jamaica’s most famous musician? Head to the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston to see the reggae icon’s property, where he lived a few years before his all-too-early death.
If you or your spouse are music lovers, you’ll love the history and memorabilia here. Purchase classic records, marvel at old photos, and see Bob Marley’s room exactly how he left it.
It’s the perfect opportunity to spend the afternoon learning about one of Jamaica’s most influential figures.
Doctor’s Cave Beach
This far into a guide to Jamaica honeymoons and no beaches? Don’t worry; we know some great locations for water activities around the island.
Doctor’s Cave Beach is one of the best spots in Jamaica to snorkel, sunbathe, or swim.
You’ll find a gorgeous coral reef only steps from the shores, where you can catch glimpses of dozens of tropical fish and rays.
The waves are gentle, the water is comfortably warm, and the sand is soft. Entrance is $6 per person.
Seven Mile Beach
Ok, some things are still free. And one of the best honeymoon destinations in Jamaica, Seven Mile Beach, offers you some top-notch snorkeling and fun in the sun – and it’s gratis.
You’ll see locals and tourists, especially on the weekends, as this is one of the best beaches in Jamaica.
There are plenty of great locations to scuba dive or snorkel, but if you want to do something thrilling on your Jamaica honeymoon, Seven Mile Beach offers plenty.
Try parasailing, kayaking, or going on a party cruise and see why Seven Mile Beach is one of the best honeymoon destinations in Jamaica.
Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park
If you want to climb some of the tallest mountains in the Caribbean (or look at them from below), visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site on your Jamaica honeymoon.
The hike is kind of epic (it will take you and your spouse over four hours to get to the top), but isn’t your honeymoon supposed to turn you into legends for a week?
There are also several nature walks along the trails where you can bird-watch, see waterfalls, and try a cup of the famous Blue Mountain coffee not far from the national park.
Jamaica’s beaches are known for their beautiful clear blue waters, golden sands, and warm temperatures. But if you want to discover one of the best honeymoon spots in Jamaica that offers a different beach experience, try Boston Beach.
This is the place to go if you and your life partner like to surf. The waves here are suitable for surfing nearly year-round, but there are other reasons you’ll want to visit.
Boston Beach is also the home of jerk cooking. Tuck into the flavorful bbq that is one of the island’s culinary Jamaica’s claims to fame – the spicier the better.
When’s The Best Time to Visit Jamaica?
Jamaica is beautiful year-round, but the weather from December through April is particularly appealing as it’s outside of hurricane season and the weather is at its warmest.
How Long to Spend on Your Jamaica Honeymoon?
A honeymoon in Jamaica will most likely feel too short, no matter how much time you spend here. We recommend spending 5-10 days on your Jamaica honeymoon, but even longer if you can afford to.
How Much Does a Jamaica Honeymoon Cost?
Jamaican honeymoons range in price depending on where you’re staying. Peak season is more expensive but gives you the best chance of experiencing great weather.
Basic accommodations in Jamaica can run as low as $50 a night. Jamaica honeymoon packages at all-inclusive resorts typically average around $350- $600 a night.
