Surf-and-turf joints line every inch of the A1A along the beach, while white tablecloths drape the majority of Las Olas pavement restaurants.

Local Cuisine

When it comes to jerk cooking, nowhere does it better than Jamaica. The same goes for their world-famous Jamaican patties – savoury pastries usually stuffed with beef and spices. Be sure to pair your lunch with Jamaica’s Red Stripe lager, brewed locally since 1939. If you’re craving caffeine, have a cup of Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee – it’s rated amongst the best in the world.

Falmouth port plaza with restaurants and merchants

Shopping

The Shoppes at Rose Hall offer the best duty-free shopping in Jamaica. Here you’ll find plenty of luxury goods, fine watches, designer jewellery and locally made island crafts and souvenirs.
