The Lion House

Further Afield

our island


Jamaica has a vast array of places to explore from swimming in turquoise blue rivers and sandy coves to taking an exhilarating bicycle tour in the Blue Mountains.

There is something to suit everyone here yet many of our guests are content to relax at the Lion House for days at a time. 


A few of our local favourites


Spanish Bridge

A delightful deep swimming hole frequented by locals and visitors. Has an irie vibe and is a restorative experience not to be missed. Jump from the old bridge, float in the cool water where the sun sparkles through the tall bamboo.


Little Dunn's River

A couple of kilometres from Ocho Rios is a delightful local spot where you can swim in the sea, have an invigorating massage under cool waterfalls and climb up the falls. Great to start the day.


Sugar Pot Beach

Another local spot where you can swim in the sea, have the beach practically to yourself and eat local cuisine at reasonable prices.


Once you are here we can let you know of other great places to visit that will suit both your budget and your style of travel.
