Relax on the white sands of Turtle Beach, snorkel in the shallow blue waters of Mahogany Bay, or escape to secluded Reggae Beach. Spend the afternoon exploring the restaurants, shopping centres, and craft markets on the busy Main Street. Travel to the village of Nine Mile, the birthplace and final resting place of Bob Marley, and tour the reggae legend's museum and mausoleum. Firefly and Blue Harbour, playwright Noel Coward's former island homes, are well worth a visit too.
