Runaway Bay

Once a resting point for escaped slaves, Runaway Bay makes up for a lack of cultural attractions with an abundance of natural beauty.
For shopping fun, head to Island Village or Harmony Hall Jamaica. Explore hidden gems such as Scuba & Snorkeling and KDK LoFt Jamaica. Get out of town with these interesting Runaway Bay side-trips: Ocho Rios (Jamaica Grande Beach, Sandals Golf & Country Club, & more). There's more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Sharkies Beach and view the masterpieces at Joe James Gallery.

To see other places to visit, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, read Runaway Bay road trip planning website .

Johannesburg, South Africa to Runaway Bay is an approximately 28-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 7 hours traveling from Johannesburg to Runaway Bay. Traveling from Johannesburg in February, plan for somewhat warmer nights in Runaway Bay, with lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) to allow time to drive to Montego Bay.

Montego Bay

The second largest city in Jamaica, Montego Bay boasts an international airport and a major cruise-line terminal, so it regularly receives a big influx of visitors to the island.
Explore hidden gems such as Black River and River Rafting & Tubing. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at White Witch Golf Course and Jewels In Paradise. When in Montego Bay, make a side trip to see Good Hope Plantation in Clarendon Parish, approximately 50 minutes away. There's still lots to do: stroll through Doctor's Cave Beach, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, enjoy the sand and surf at Cornwall Beach, and steep yourself in history at Rose Hall Great House.

For traveler tips, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Montego Bay trip planner .

You can drive from Runaway Bay to Montego Bay in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of taxi and bus. In February in Montego Bay, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 26°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Thu) so you can go by car to Negril.

Once Jamaica's hidden gem, Negril has significantly expanded its infrastructure without losing its casual way of life.
Do your shopping at Irie Art and Junior Bruce, Woodcarver. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Half Moon Beach and Negril Cliffs. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Seven Mile Beach, stroll through Bloody Bay, take in the natural beauty of Blue Hole Mineral Spring, and savor the flavors at Food & Drink.

Make your Negril itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Traveling by car from Montego Bay to Negril takes 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus. In February, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 19th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
