ISLAND INFORMATION

The beaches in Jamaica are truly spectacular, from secluded private coves to Negril’s world-renowned seven-mile stretch of powdery white sand, all looking out onto the ultra-clear, turquoise waters of the Caribbean. So a couple could be forgiven for spending their entire heavenly Sandals vacation basking in the seductive warmth of the ever-present sunshine, while sipping exotic tropical drinks and gazing out at the endless expanse of aquamarine sea. But, truly, Sandals in Jamaica is so much more than just a beach, it’s the perfect couples only resort.
