Rockhouse, Negril, Jamaica

Rockhouse, Negril, Jamaica

The Rockhouse resort sits far from the bustle of Montego Bay on the rocky shores of Negril. Each bungalow is just steps from the water that laps languidly at the base of the cliffs. Being here is like diving into your personal aquarium populated by species usually found only on offshore reefs.

On-site secret: Book a bungalow close to the restaurant for the most direct access to the best snorkeling. The grottos are absolutely magical. Keep an eye out for: huge schools of silversides and such wonders as the snake eel―a nonthreatening beauty.

When to go: anytime year-round for usually calm, protected waters; 876/957-4373 or
