Jamaica abounds with colorful sites for weddings, proposals and other romantic adventures. East of Treasure Beach, Lovers Leap is a sheer 1,700-foot cliff overhanging the sea. Legend has it that during the days of enslavement two young lovers would meet secretly on the adjoining Yardley Chase Plantation. The owner wanted the woman for himself and arranged to have her lover sold. Not wanting to be separated, the two plunged together to their death.
Port Antonio’s “Blue Lagoon” is a small, secluded lagoon renowned for its vivid blue color. This makes for a “tropical paradise” setting for an intimate ceremony and can only be accessed via a narrow lane off the coast road or by boat.
Jamaica is also home to many gardens with colorful tropical flowers and lush greenery providing a beautiful wedding backdrop. A top pick is Shaw Park Gardens, high in the hills overlooking Ocho Rios with a panoramic view of the seaside town below.
