Booby Cay

Booby Cay is an island off the coast of Jamaica. It is located in the Hanover parish, in the western part of the island. Booby Cay is surrounded by beautiful coral reefs that offer some of the best diving and snorkeling in the world. A stop on the little island will present the opportunity to eat fresh caught lobster cooked right on the beach. Yeah mon!

Blue Cave Castle

There is a castle in Jamaica built on the west coast of Jamaica near the town of Negril (west end near the lighthouse). The castle is built above a cave in the cliffs that was used by pirates in days gone by. The Blue Cave Castle sits 50 feet above the Caribbean Sea and operates as a hotel. It is a very unusual sight to see in a tropical setting.

I Wanna Be A Lifeguard

I want an ocean and some sunscreen lotion. Take me to the beach with a thousand pretty girls in reach. Hardly any clothes, sand between my toes and white stuff on my nose. Sitting on my chair in the salty air. Lounging on the deck with a whistle ’round my neck.
