Travel and Leisure Lists Jamaica as One of 17 Most Beautiful … – Jamaicans.com

The Travel and Leisure website has ranked the 17 Most Beautiful Caribbean Islands, and according to the list, Jamaica ranks Number 6. There are over 7,000 islands in the Caribbean, and all of them enjoy almost perfect weather, beaches of white sand, and turquoise waters. Some 100 of them are inhabited and are well-known as vacation destinations for travelers from around the world. However, in spite of their commonalities, every island offers its unique blend of history, natural wonders, and fascinating cultures.
Jamaica is located about 600 miles from Miami, Florida, within easy reach of tourists from the United States seeking tropical sun, sand, and ocean breezes. There is a wide variety of activities to enjoy along with the obvious natural beauty of its landscape. There are rivers that flow from mountains to the sea, and the famous Dunn’s River Falls is a major attraction for hikers and beachgoers who enjoy swimming in the waters at the base of the Falls and relaxing on the nearby white sand beach.
