Out & About

The Pinnacle is surrounded by opportunity. From golf and rafting the rivers, to the challenges of deep-sea fishing or lazing around on the beach.

Some of the most magical gems in Jamaica are the cooling rivers and waterfalls that flow down from the hills and mountains.

It remains our vision to create quite simply the finest lifestyle in Jamaica. A community to be genuinely proud of.


Jamaica has a significant number of beautifully positioned world-class golf courses. For players of any standard, there are challenging and beautiful courses to play. Amongst the most popular and those close to The Pinnacle, are the Tryall, Half Moon, Cinnamon Hill and White Witch clubs.

Polo & Equestrianism

With some of the oldest polo clubs in the world, Jamaica has always had a place in the hearts of the playing fraternity. The Half Moon Equestrian Centre, some 30 minutes from The Pinnacle, offer riding, jumping and polo lessons, alongside the famous surf and turf rides. Horseback trekking is also highly popular with numerous opportunities from Negril to Ochos Rios.

Walking & Hiking

For adventure, for naturalists or just for a day away from the pool, the area has numerous walking trails from Mount Zion Hill to the more demanding hiking in Cockpit Country. There are more famous sites to visit like the Green Grotto Caves and Martha Brae River, and of course for those wanting a break from Montego Bay, the Blue Mountains themselves are the crowning walking glory.

Rivers & Rafting

There are few more relaxing occupations than drifting down a river, watching the wildlife and leaving the busy behind. Both the Great River and the Martha Brae provide magical days and inevitably the various waterfalls on Jamaica’s rivers deliver high points in most journeys whether on foot or on the water.

Sailing & Watersports

There are a variety of operators providing boat and yacht hire in the area, as well as fully crewed and catered experiences. The Montego Bay Yacht Club itself can be easily seen from the towers. Inevitably, being on the Caribbean, kitesurfing and windsurfing are popular occupations and there are a number of popular beaches from which to set off.

Diving & Snorkelling

For the experienced divers or just the enthusiastic snorkeller the sea of Jamaica are paradise. Around Montego Bay are some of the best dives with healthy coral reefs, wrecks and caves, including the slightly pessimistically named Widowmaker’s Cave. Given the extensive marine reserve, just snorkelling reveals a wealth of tropical fish, black corals, parrot fish and lots more.

From The Pinnacle, residents are truly spoilt for choice. For the quieter, civilised days, the resorts of Round Hill and Half Moon are both conveniently close; for the more lively, Doctor’s Cave Beach is forever popular and Cornwall Beach is a snorkelling paradise; but travelling slightly further afield takes you to the incomparable Seven Mile Beach at quirky Negril.

Restaurants & Bars

Across the lagoon from The Pinnacle is simply one of Montego Bay’s best and most curious places to eat, House Boat Grill. Inevitably, some of the best restaurants and locations are found at the resorts of Round Hill and Half Moon, with the Grille and the Sugar Mill. However, there are many local restaurants and bars in which to enjoy authentic dishes, bars and cocktails.

History & Culture

Montego Bay and St James Parish are a rich landscape for heritage. From the 19th century Rose Hall Great House with all its dubious history, through Fort Montego to the magical gem of the Greenwood Great House from the 1780s, with its sweeping views across the Caribbean. For those interested in Jamaica’s past, the area has so much to offer.

Jamaica is truly an angler’s paradise. Whether it is reef or deep-sea fishing off the coast for blue marlin, wahoo, mahi mahi, tuna or sailfish, amongst many others; freshwater river fishing in the hills and valleys for perch, killifish or gobies; or simply shallow water fishing for bonefish, wahoo, tarpon, and barracuda. There is something for everybody.

Jamaica is Not Just Montego Bay!

Most important of all is that Jamaica is a country and not merely a destination. There is so much to enjoy and explore from the Blue Mountains to Bob Marley’s Museum – it is a country of surprise and opportunity.
