Nine Mile

We start at the Nine Mile, the birthplace and final resting place of Robert Nesta Marley, more commonly known as Bob Marley. Bob Marley was born in a small cottage in the rural village of Nine Mile and lived here until he was 13 years old. His house and community gave Bob the inspiration for many of his well-known songs.  A visit to Bob Marley’s home at Nine Mile includes a tour of the property from Rastafarian guides, which usually includes a rendition of one of Bob’s songs, memorabilia, his famous “rock pillow” where he rested his head for inspiration and the Marley mausoleum.

Runaway Bay

Runaway Bay has a rich history where the slaves of Jamaica uses the caves to hide and escape from their masters and the plantations. The Green Grotto Cave was the most famous and a safe house and escape to the sea.

The first Jamaicans were known as the Tainos who came from South America who used these caves to hide from the Spanish invasion in 1655. During the World War 2, the Jamaican government used these caves to store barrels of rum and sugar cane. Rum was our staple product and during both world wars, the smugglers who were running arms to Cuba also used these caves.

Discovery Bay

Discovery Bay is where Christopher Columbus first discovered Jamaica in 1494. The bay currently has the largest Alumina Plant. Jamaica exports bauxite/alumina at this commercial shipping port. It is a very historic visit to see the panoramic view of this northern coastline facing USA.
