Easy breezy Jamaica honeymoons

After all the stress of wedding planning, you deserve a relaxing getaway. And where better to spend your honeymoon than Jamaica? Surrounded by the clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, this sun-soaked island is the perfect place to kick things off as a newly married couple. 

You certainly won’t have any trouble finding somewhere magical to stay on your Jamaica honeymoon. The place is packed with luxurious, oceanfront hotels – many of which are all-inclusive and adults only. When you’re not busy sipping handcrafted cocktails around the pool, you’ll be able to enjoy couple’s massages in the spa, sunset strolls along the shore and even private dinners under the stars.

A honeymoon in Jamaica can be incredibly tranquil, but if you and your partner are the active kind, it’ll tick a lot of boxes for you too. While the beaches here are certainly stunning, Jamaica’s got a lot more going for it than just good looks. You can take to the water on a kayak or surfboard, or don a snorkel and explore the colourful coral reefs. Nature-loving couples should tackle the trails at Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park, which is renowned for its incredible array of flora and fauna, while cultural types might want to spend some time in Kingston.

In addition to all this, you’ll experience the warm and friendly hospitality that Jamaica’s famous for. And, of course, there’s the mouth-watering cuisine – which you’ll appreciate all the more if you embarked on any kind of pre-wedding diet!

So what are you waiting for? Give our experts a call and they can help you plan the perfect Jamaica honeymoon.

Honeymoon hotels in Jamaica

If ever there’s a time to treat yourself to a really swanky hotel, it’s on your honeymoon. And Jamaica has tonnes of options. Secrets St. James Montego Bay is one of our top choices. A five-star resort set amongst lush, tropical gardens, just steps from the beach, it raises the bar when it comes to luxury. Some suites offer direct swim-out access to a private pool, while the Unlimited-Luxury® experience goes beyond a standard all-inclusive package and includes everything you could possibly need on your Jamaica honeymoon.

Another favourite is Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios. Located on a 700-foot stretch of private beach, this intimate retreat goes heavy on old-school elegance but without being old-fashioned. It’s been open for over 60 years and has played host to heaps of celebrities including Noel Coward, Katherine Hepburn, Ian Fleming and Winston Churchill. Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller even spent their honeymoon here.

However, if you’d prefer somewhere more modern, consider staying at Excellence Oyster Bay. An adults-only, all-inclusive resort on a private peninsula, it really nails the whole away-from-it-all thing. Besides nine dining options and an indulgent spa, the resort offers an array of activities to keep you busy.

Things to do in Jamaica

Your Jamaica honeymoon can be as active or laidback as you like. If you’ve gone all-out on your accommodation then you’re going to want to make the most of the resort’s incredible facilities and spend some time enjoying the pool, the spa – maybe even the gym. And then of course plenty of time will be spent at the beach – after all, that’s probably the reason you picked Jamaica as your honeymoon destination in the first place. If you can bear to peel yourself up off the sun lounger, it’s worth getting out and exploring the ocean. The corals here are home to all kinds of tropical fish as well as two different types of sea turtle, so snorkelling or diving should certainly feature somewhere on your Jamaica honeymoon agenda.

Away from the coast, there are opportunities for hiking and mountain biking at Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park, or you could go river tubing along Ocho Rios’ White River. If you and your other half are into arts and culture, you might want to spend a day exploring Jamaica’s capital, Kingston. The beating heart of the island, it’s home to attractions like the National Gallery of Jamaica, the Bob Marley Museum, and Usain Bolt’s restaurant-come-sports bar, Tracks & Records.

Beaches

All clear blue waters and sugary white sands, Jamaica’s beaches are nothing short of spectacular – and with more than 1,000 kilometres of coastline, there are plenty of them to choose from. Doctor’s Cave Beach in Montego Bay is one of the country’s finest, and most popular, while Seven Mile Beach in Negril is the biggest of the bunch. For somewhere a little more tranquil, though, you might want to check out Treasure Beach on the quieter southern coast.

You can swim or snorkel at most beaches here, but if you’re keen to do some surfing at some point during your Jamaica honeymoon, you’ll want to head to Boston Bay, on the northeast coast. An exposed reef break, it gets consistent surf throughout the year but with waves that are gentle enough for novices. Or if you fancy taking on some bigger swells, Makka Beach in Yallahs is another great option.

Best time to go to Jamaica

The best time to go on a Jamaica honeymoon is between December and March. During these months, things are sunny and dry, with daytime highs hovering around 30°C – perfect for lazing by the pool. And evenings remain warm so you’ll be able to enjoy plenty of al fresco dinners on the beach.

However, such glorious weather does tend to draw the crowds. If you’re not keen on encountering loads of other people on your honeymoon, you might want to travel at the very beginning of winter, before things really pick up – so sometime between mid-November and mid-December – or else wait until spring. We wouldn’t advise booking your Jamaica honeymoon any time between June and early November, though, as this is the island’s wet season. Although showers rarely last all day, downpours do tend to be heavy and will certainly cut into your beach time.
