Jamaican jerk chicken

Scotchies Jerk Hut – The Famous Local Restaurant

Why do we like Scotchies Jerk Hut?

Firstly it is a “must stop” when you get to Jamaica! There are multiple Scotchies restaurants located throughout the island and they are all known for their authentic Jamaican jerk chicken and jerk pork. Along with great food and a real Jamaican outdoor atmosphere, the prices are relatively reasonable, especially for the famous Jamaican jerk chicken. This is a no-frills type restaurant. The appearance is rather rustic and authentic. It is situated outdoors and is quite casual. Besides the authentic Jamaican jerk chicken seasoning is the open roasting on pimento sticks so that the taste can soak through the marinated meats. Our favorite dish is the Jamaican jerk chicken. What will yours be?

For sides, you can choose from Jamaican festival, rice & peas, yam, roasted breadfruit to sweet potato which are all delicious. For the adults, don’t forget to wash it all down with a very cold Red Stripe Beer. The kids can try a cold drink of coconut water or a bottle of Ting (grapefruit soda).

Puerto Seco Beach

Puerto Seco Beach in Discovery Bay

Even when I was a little girl in the ’70s, my whole family used to drive all the way from Kingston up to Discovery Bay because we had to go to one of the best beaches on the island- Puerto Seco Beach! Yes, it is that magical! And today, it has gone through a recent $5 million dollar refurbishment to reveal an oasis with a lagoon swimming pool and an open plan restaurant which overlooks my favorite beach! I can’t believe these new improvements to the beautiful Puerto Seco Beach! A hotel-style pool with poolside cabanas, a jerk pit, and a bar. There is also a shower, locker and changing room facilities. If that isn’t enough already, Puerto Seco Beach is going to have a fabulous children’s playground with slides.

Activities for the whole family! When you want to take a break from all the relaxation, jump in with the full-service scuba diving and watersports facility there.

Jamaica Beach

Fantasy and Beachnut Villa on the Beach

Why we Love Fantasy and Beachnut Villa on a Jamaica Beach?

We have been renting these wonderful villas on a Jamaica beach for over 15 years! They are comfortable, have the best staff, and are located on a long white sandy Jamaica beach so we can stroll in the mornings or evenings. We have seen these simple family cottages develop into awesome chic beachfront villas that are great for families, weddings, family reunions, etc. Not only are they on a Jamaica beach but they have a large private swimming pool, sea kayaks, and are great for snorkeling! It’s only a 5-minute drive to the new Puerto Seco Beach for watersports and restaurants. This villa is definitely a family favorite with a fantastic and loyal staff!
