You can go rafting on the Black River which is the longest river in Jamaica where you can see Manatee and Crocodiles.
You can also visit the YS Falls and the very picturesque Holland Bamboo which is a cove of bamboos stretching for miles along the road.
The locals are very polite and friendly. All this is still some of the virgin attractions, this is the paradise for relaxation which will embalm your mind and captivate your spirit.
You cannot be in St Elizabeth and not visit the best local seafood restaurant Little Ochie in Alligator Pond where your choice of seafood is custom made. The views of Lovers Leap (Mountain Side) are breathtaking.

The best fish restaurant in the whole of Jamaica, although you might not guess to look at it. A rough and ready shack on the beach in a remote fishing village, it serves fish by the pound, in old wooden fishermen’s canoes propped on stilts on the sand. Get Blackie, the owner, to pick out your fish and cook it whichever way you like - but don’t miss the jerk conch or garlic shrimp.
It’s hard to get to by road, but if you catch a boat from Treasure Beach it’ll drop you on the beach at your table. Ask a tour guide called Ted to take you in his boat, the Evil Ting, if you fancy the maddest, loudest boat ride on the south coast.

Ignore the horribly tourist-clogged Dunns River Falls on the north coast, and drive to YS Falls, buried away in lush tropical parkland on an old family stud farm. Guides are there to help you on to vine swings for some Tarzan action, and you can buy a Red Stripe and a beef pattie, but that’s about as commercialised as it gets. Go early in the morning and you may even get the whole place to yourself.
YS Estate, near Black River, St Elizabeth.
The most picturesque bar in the Caribbean, built from driftwood on stilts half a mile out into the ocean. Get a fisherman in Black River to take you out in his boat, and let the owner, Floyde, cook you escovitch snapper with rice and peas. If you go during the daytime, you’ll probably see his tame sting rays idling in the water beneath your feet, hoping for your leftovers.
Any boat from the wharf in Black River, St Elizabeth.
Jake's resort is often featured in round-ups of the best the island has to offer - and for a reason. Book into one of the theatrically-designed seafront cottages, where you can stargaze from the flat roof, shower alfresco or throw open the doors to watch the sea lap
against the cliffs from the comfort of your bed. No wonder it's popular with honeymooners.
Treasure Beach is around 15 miles from Black River.
