Runaway Bay sits 10 miles west of Ocho Rios and about an hour east of Montego Bay. With quiet coves, infinite beaches and serene waters, this seaside town truly lives up to its name. While it is gradually developing into a popular tourist area, the beaches remain relatively uncrowded and well maintained -- perfect for picnics and outdoor activities. Runaway Bay also offers some of the best snorkeling in Jamaica, with reefs close to the shore and a diverse mix of marine life and tropical fish. Protected dive sites also offer visitors glimpses of a large underwater canyon and sunken ships. Just south of town, guided tours explore the expansive limestone Runaway Cave -- a highlight is the boat ride across Green Grotto, a subterranean lake that lies 120 feet below the surface. Other popular activities in Runaway Bay include golf, horseback riding at Chukka Caribbean Adventures or visiting the 18th-century Seville Great House, which hosts a collection of artifacts detailing five centuries of Jamaican history.
