Discovery Bay Travel Tips
Discovery Bay Beach Rentals with Cliff Divers
From cliff diving to secluded beaches, Discovery Bay beach rentals have it all. Planning your next vacation is easy when you choose Discovery Bay villas because you know the warm waters and tropical haven are waiting for you. Jamaica travel is all about the scuba diving, fishing, and surfing. Each day, you can be delighted by the professional cliff divers jumping into the bay or the sea creatures winking below the waves.
Christopher Columbus and Discovery Bay Villas
Discovery Bay is in Saint Ann Parish, Jamaica, though it was originally named Dry Harbour Mountains by Columbus. There is a dispute as to where Christopher Columbus landed in 1494. Some believe he landed east of Discovery Bay at Sevilla la Nueva. He chose the name Dry Harbour because underground cracks in the limestone feed the bay rather than rivers. When you rent Discovery Bay villas, you have the chance to visit the mines of the area that have led to the wealth of Jamaica. Jamaica is also highly dependent on tourism so Discovery Bay beach rentals are often affordable compared to other Caribbean Islands.
Jamaica Travel near the Marine Laboratory
Jamaica travel is mostly about scuba diving and the Discovery Bay Marine Laboratory. The laboratory was founded in 1965 by marine researchers to monitor and study the coral reefs of Jamaica. The reef is home to numerous species of fish, some sea turtles, and a few species of shark. Even if you do not enjoy diving, the snorkeling from the beach of your Discovery Bay villas will be an experience to remember.
Discovery Bay Beach Rentals by Green Grotto Caves
If you prefer land to sea, Jamaica travel can offer you the Green Grotto Caves. Legend says the caves were a hideaway for Spanish settlers trying to escape the British. This adventure, which is minutes from your Discovery Bay beach rentals, will take you into the past as well as offer a geological lesson. The caves are limestone with stalactites and stalagmites running throughout the caverns leading to an underground lake.
