ABOUT MONTEGO BAY
Affectionately called Mobay. Montego Bay is the second largest city in Jamaica by area and the fourth by population (after Kingston, Spanish Town and Portmore). It is a tourist destination with hotels, restaurants, tourist attractions, duty free shopping, a cruise line terminal and several beaches. The city is backed by picturesque low mountains.
Its population is largely descended from African slaves brought here to work sugar cane fields. Pirates loved Jamaica’s protected anchorages. But the Royal Navy ultimately did away with buccaneers, and in the 20th century, tourism and mining surpassed sugar, rum and coffee production in the economy. But even a visitor is likely to notice Jamaica is an island of haves and have-nots.
Lush, green and hilly, Jamaica is the third-largest Caribbean island, after Cuba and Hispaniola.
First, call it by the commonly used “Mo Bay”. On the northwestern edge of Jamaica, Mo Bay is a vacation destination, with hotels and resorts catering especially to Americans. Decades before they arrived, Ian Fleming chose Montego Bay for his holiday home, and here he wrote his early James Bond novels. He put Bond at Doctor’s Cave, one of the acclaimed local white sand beaches. Most famous - or infamous - of the remaining sugar plantation great houses is the18th-century Rose Hall. This was the home of Annie Palmer, called the White Witch of Rose Hall because she practiced voodoo, frightening her 2,000 slaves.
Also open for tours is Greenwood Great House. Greenwood has no ghost stories but does have a pub. Other tourist activities include visiting the Appleton Rum Estate, golfing on championship courses and river rafting.
