and offers beaches, nightlife, water sports, golf, fine dining and great duty free shopping.
Swinging with sports and hot spots, Mo Bay is the islands playground capital.
A favourite with visitors since the turn of the century, Montego Bays beaches (Doctor's Cave Beach,
Walter Fletcher Beach, Tropical Beach, Rose Hall Beach) are just a short hop from the airport.
The bay is famous for clear waters and coral reef just off the coast. The Marine Park comprised of 10 sq.
miles of coral reefs offers excellent scuba diving and snorkeling. Take a glass bottom boat trip to view the
underwater spectacle or enjoy the reef (without getting wet) aboard MoBay Underseas Tours.
