Visitors to Ocho Rios barely have time for the beaches since there are tons of other attractions here. One of the most popular pastimes is scrambling up the tiered, 940-foot waterfall known as Dunn's River Falls—although it's best avoided if there's a cruise ship in port; it'll be crawling with day-trippers. Visitors can also go strolling around Coyaba Gardens among fountains, streams, a crafts center, and a historical museum. The new, tastefully designed Island Village near the cruise-ship pier can fill an entire day, with its reggae museum, art gallery, and fashion and crafts shops. A leisurely jitney jaunt through Prospect Plantation, a 900-acre working estate, introduces you to island crops such as sugarcane, bananas, and coconut. The Zion Bus Line will take you on a vintage country bus "complete with reggae music and dreadlocked driver" to the village of Nine Miles, birthplace and burial place of Bob Marley. East of Ocho Rios, near the town of Port Maria, you can visit Firefly, the modest one-bedroom house that was the beloved getaway of Sir Noel Coward. It's where he entertained movie stars, royalty, and his old chum Ian Fleming.
