Things to Do

Cruise Terminal -Falmouth

Given its proximity to the home ports of Florida, Jamaica is a year-round cruise destination and a mainstay on western Caribbean itineraries.

The Port of Falmouth is located in the town of Falmouth on the nation’s northern coast, eighteen (18) miles east of Montego Bay, fifty-nine (59) miles west of Ocho Rios, and right along cruise shipping routes. Falmouth, located in the parish of Trelawny, is set become the first heritage township destination in Jamaica. From Falmouth, visitors can access most of the tours currently offered from Montego Bay and Ocho Rios.

With its excellent location and its ability to host post-Panamax vessels, many which make the Caribbean their year-round home, the Port of Falmouth hosts cruise ship calls year-round.

Water Square – Falmouth

Water Square forms the town square and is the busy hub of Falmouth.

Falmouth boasted running water before many of the world’s major cities. A circular stone reservoir once stood in the middle of Water Square, holding water which was carried from the Martha Brae river along an aqueduct. Water was then pumped in to private houses or carried from the reservoir by slaves. The reservoir was built in 1798, before even New York has running water.

The reservoir was demolished in 1954. In its place there is now a garden and a fountain.

Falmouth was the venue for the opening ceremony of the 2007 ICC cricket world cup. Water Square underwent major renovation as part of an extensive beautification project to mark the event.
