Encountering Another Jamaica, by Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff
"Treasure Beach, a village in the southwest parish of St. Elizabeth. It’s probably the area in Jamaica best known for community tourism — low-impact travel that works in relative sync with the locals. Once a fishing village, over the past 30 years, Treasure Beach has become a beacon for tourists looking to travel off the beaten track.
"The stunning beaches were (an) obvious draw, along with a variety of well-priced, locally owned guest rooms and villas."

An insider's guide to Black River, Jamaica, by Ruth C White.
"Named after the longest river in Jamaica and largest wetland in the English-speaking Caribbean, the seaside town is home to mangrove forests of crocodiles, waterfalls rife with hummingbirds, and waterfront seafood spots serving up classic Jamaican dishes.
"Twenty minutes east of Black River is the quiet fishing village and resort town of Treasure Beach, known for its ecotourism, sandy coves, and empty beaches."

"Have Covid restrictions ruined paradise? No — if anything it’s a comfort to know that things are being taken seriously, even on this sunshine-filled island. The antigen tests and resilience corridors — which cover the key tourist areas including Montego Bay, Negril and Treasure Beach — mean that visitors stay in a protected bubble and islanders are kept as safe. It is absolutely the right place for us, and we are all incredibly grateful that we’ve been able to travel together as a family to such a fantastic country."

"Turtles' Nest villa should be your next staycation destination. The villa’s interiors exude tropical chic. The combinations of high ceilings and fold-away glass doors make the indoors feel like an extension of the outdoors. The interior colour scheme of white, blue and turquoise picks up the hues of the shore from outside." By travel writer SueTanya McChorgh.
