As you might expect in such a diverse country, each part of the country differs considerably from the next. To help get you started, here’s our pick of some of the best places to buy property in Jamaica.

Montego Bay on the northern coast of Jamaica is, far and away, the most popular tourist destination in Jamaica. Almost half of all overseas visitors to the island stayed in the destination, drawn to its white sand beaches, turquoise waters, beach resorts, golf courses and protected marine park. Many of the same attractions also appeal to property buyers, making ‘MoBay’ one of the most popular and best places to buy property in Jamaica. Property for sale in the area ranges from brand new condos in secure communities in Montego Bay and its environs such as Spring Gardens and Reading through to some of Jamaica’s finest luxury homes in areas such as Rose Hall.

Jamaica’s vibrant capital Kingston is currently undergoing something of a renaissance. Billions of dollars are being pumped into infrastructure improvements and new governmental and commercial developments. There are currently 15 major public works in the pipeline, including office buildings, parking facilities, cultural and entertainment facilities, a new Parliament building and a new police headquarters. According to the Jamaican Prime Minister, the aim is to make Kingston the “Pearl of the Antilles.” The huge investment in commercial real estate and public works has also stimulated a boom in residential development. New communities of villas, townhouses, condos and apartments are springing up in the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, creating new homes for first time buyers and young families. These new mid-income developments represent highly attractive investment opportunities for buyers with an eye on the lucrative short-term and long-term rental markets.

Located in the Parish of St Ann on the central northern coast of Jamaica to the west of Oracabessa, Ocho Rios follows Montego Bay as one of the most popular destinations in Jamaica. Offering proximity to world-renowned attractions such as the magnificent Dunn’s River Falls, duty-free shopping, some great beaches and excellent resorts, Ocho Rios is popular with both cruise ship visitors and stayover visitors. It is also a popular place for buying property in Jamaica. There are some lovely existing homes for sale as well as some new developments of townhouses and vacation villas in communities offering access to the beach and other amenities.

Located on the western coast of Jamaica, the resort town of Negril straddles the parishes of Westmoreland and Hanover. It is perhaps best known for Seven Mile Beach which is one of the longest beach in Jamaica. The long white sandy strip is perfect for enjoying leisurely strolls while taking in the picturesque views of the turquoise Caribbean Sea, a snorkel or dive on the reefs just off shore, or sampling some tasty jerk chicken sizzling away at restaurants along the beach. Quieter and less crowded than Montego Bay, Negril is warm, welcoming and authentic. Little wonder the area is rising in popularity as a place to invest. There are fantastic condos and townhouses for sale offering idyllic views, as well as some new villas for sale in the vicinity.

Searching for luxury real estate in Jamaica? For buyers looking for a residence of the highest quality in a highly most prestigious location, the Tryall Club in the Parish of Hanover just outside Montego Bay is hard to beat. The community spans 2,200 acres of elegant grounds with a secluded beach, an 18-hole golf course with stunning views of the sea and a prestigious club complete with tennis courts, ocean-facing gym and spa, restaurants and access to all kinds of water sports from kayaking and paddle boarding to diving and snorkelling.
