Attractions In Ocho Rios

Welcome to Ocho Rios or “OCHIE” as it is affectionately called. Located in the garden Parish of ST. Ann, it is the second largest resort town and the most popular Cruise Ship port on the Island. Ocho Rios – translated “eight rivers”, is a corruption of the Spanish name “chorreros” or “chireiras” referring to the gushing waters of local water falls such as at the Ruins.

The town was not more than a fishing harbour until the early 1900 when interest in tourism began to shape the landscape and transformed Ocho Rios into the beautiful resort town it is today with beautiful beaches, all inclusive resorts, villas, duty free shopping, craft shopping and fishing beaches where you can enjoy seafood dishes(Island style)as well as various water sports activities, attractions and sightseeing tours. How about a visit to Bob Marley’s birthplace?
