Lucea's charm extends beyond its coastal white-sand beaches, private coves and picture-perfect sunsets, spreading into the tiny colonial town that serves host to a busy weekly Saturday market. Nestled between Montego Bay and Negril, Lucea is a pristine, tranquil pit stop spared - for now - from the relentless tourist crowds increasingly eyeing this uncharted Jamaican getaway.

Do and see
The tiny scenic town of Lucea is primarily a beach resort destination, with beach activities and water sports topping the list of things on most visitors' to-do lists. Try windsurfing, snorkeling or kite-surfing, or opt for a rather unique excursion where one gets to dash directly through the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean while on horseback (multiple local agencies offer guided tours). Elsewhere on the island stunning beaches, cascade waterfalls and multiple active pursuits await.
Fort Charlotte
Fort Charlotte was built in 1746 to protect Jamaica's northwest from naval attacks. It was given the name "Fort Charlotte" in honor of King George III's marriage to queen Charlotte and enjoyed a reputation of being one of the best-kept forts in Jamaica.
The Court House
Lucea's most striking landmark is the Court House, a grand clock tower its signature aspect. It was dispatched to St. Lucia in 1817, but an error in delivery saw it landing in Lucea. The residents grew fond of it and refused to send it on to St. Lucia, keeping it a local landmark to this day.
Hanover Parish Church
The Hanover Parish Church was constructed in 1725 on the ruins of an older Spanish church. The church's steeple was taken down after it sustained serious damage from an earthquake in 1957. It is widely believed that an underground tunnel connects the church to Fort Charlotte.
Coleman K Jammin Jamaica Tours
Kevin Coleman and his staff provide guests with quality taxi and tour services throughout the Lucea area. Apart from airport transfers, the company offers a variety of tours, including a Bob Marley Nine Mile Tour, visiting the Dunn and Mayfield Falls, Blue Hole Mineral Spring (Negril) Tour, river rafting and more.
JusTours Jamaica - Horseback Ride 'n' Swim Tour
A horseback tour through crystal blue waters is a once-in-a-lifetime experience made possible by the Horseback Ride 'n' Swim Tour. Even those who have never ridden a horse before are welcome to join - instructors will show you the ropes and provide professional guidance through land and sea.
Croydon on the Mountains
The working citrus and pineapple plantation of Croydon is nestled in the foothills of Catadupa Mountains, which makes for a breathtaking panoramic view of the surrounding countryside. Journey into the majestic, mountainous country, where lush vegetation, wild flowers, and bubbling waterfalls await.
Hanover Museum
The Hanover Museum was reopened in March 2011 following a thorough refurbishment. The museum is housed in an old slave prison and dates back to the late 18th century. It is a symbol of resistance that narrates Jamaican past via a number of fascinating material artifacts.
Rocky Point Stables at Half Moon
A variety of exhilarating equestrian activities are offered at Rocky Point Stables at Half Moon. Here visitors can take part in riding lessons and trail rides through the Jamaican countryside, and even go swimming on horseback as part of the beach ride.
Information
Sangster International Airport
The closest major airport to Lucea isthe Jamaican Sangster International Airport (MBJ). This airport in Montego Bay is located 47 km (30 miles) away from the center of Lucea. Getting to and from the airport is usually either offered by the resort and/or tour-operator, pre-arranged with a local transfer company or sorted out upon arrival. There are multiple stands offering transfer services inside the airport building (inquire about the prices for shared vans to particular destinations); the taxi stand can be found directly outside the airport.
Public Transport
The most cost-efficient (yet least comfortable) way of getting around the island is using the public buses and minibuses ("coasters", with the initials PPV or JUTA (for tourists only) clearly on display). These normally do not run on set time schedules and depart when full. Transportation generally passes through a town's/village's main market/station area, and most vehicles can be flagged down from the side of the road. Make sure to yell out a request for a stop when you wish to get off. Route taxis (often white Toyota Corolla cars, with "route taxi" indicated on the door) are another way of getting around. They operate on a basis similar to minibuses but are smaller, faster and more comfortable. These start from a town's terminal and pick up passengers along the way, unless you clearly specify you wish to hire one for personal use - price will go up accordingly. Alternatively, consider hiring a driver/transport service from a resort or hotel and let them do the driving; rates are comparable to a rental car company with insurance.
Taxi
There are two types of taxi service in Jamaica: charter taxis and route taxis. Charter taxis are privately hired taxis that take you directly to your destination. Route taxis will stop and pick up/drop off anyone along their route. Route taxis will have a sign on the side of the taxi listing their route. If you need to go to a location past the end of their route, you will need to transfer to a different taxi that goes to that location. All officially registered taxis in Jamaica are marked with the PPV sign or are members of the Jamaican Union of Travellers Association (JUTA) - an indication of this will be normally displayed on each individual car.
