Location
________________________________________
Nestled between the luscious green mountains and 100 yards from the deep blue Caribbean ocean, Old Fort Bay, is truly a diamond in the rough. Imagine being picked up and driven a leisurely 80 minutes on one of the most serene ocean coastal drives of Jamaica’s beautiful north shoreline. Gaze upon tropical, breathtaking views, and catch the native fauna and flora along the way.
Arrive through the gated community and drive deeper down into the comfort of your private beachfront villa. Open your mind to the idea of performing yoga on soft, powdery beaches or by the luscious gardens. Let yourself be guided through a nature walk of grassy fields tucked up against the picturesque backdrop of the mountains to a private waterfall.
Choose to lie out and catch some sun, sipping fresh coconut water, or go for a refreshing swim. Find a cozy chair or hammock to curl up in and enjoy the fresh sea breeze while being engrossed in a novel and listening to the Jamaican reggae beats playing in the distance from the hillsides.
