We offer tours of Lime Tree coffee farm. Watch the cherry red coffee beans being picked (or join in) and follow the process through to coffee roasting. Everything is done by hand – picking, pulping, drying, selecting and roasting. Then the best part, we get to drink the freshly roasted coffee.
This is a really popular trip. This 33m tall red and white striped edifice marks Morant Point, the most Eastern tip of Jamaica. The 6m wide cast iron tube was shipped from England and erected in 1841 by freed African slaves from Sierra Leone. It is the oldest lighthouse in the island and is listed as a historical monument.
You can climb to the top of the lighthouse. The powerful view and the windy silence make for a profound experience as you look out over rippling cane fields, as green as limes, toward the Blue Mountains, caressed by clouds.
Zion Country Eco beach Cabins is a 1 acre property with a private beach with a view to the ocean and to the John Crow mountains.
Dutch born Free-I, from Holland, bought the one acre property in 1996, re-landscaped the whole property and build 4 wooden beach cabins. The work took five years but Zion Country Eco beach Cabins opened its doors in 1999 and hosts visitors from all over the world. In 2008, after Hurricane Gustaf, Zion Country was badly damaged, but was totally rebuilt and looks even better.
Each unit has two rooms (2 persons each room), there is atmospheric light in the cabins, a sea view and balcony where you can relax or fall asleep in a hammock. Or you can walk outside the gate into a friendly Jamaican Community.
Zion Country Eco-Beach Cabins is an environmentally friendly place. We catch Rain Water and supply it to our Bathrooms and Showers for our guests ( Sorry, no Hot Water ).
