Jamnesia caters to travelling surfers by providing economical tent and room options at affordable rates.
The Jamnesia Surf Club, situated at Eight Miles Bull Bay, Jamaica was established by the Wilmots – Jamaica’s first surfing family – to provide a home to groom new surfers and help with the development of surfing through surf related events.
Jamaica is ideally located to benefit from the available summer and winter swells that grace the Caribbean and Jamnesia is the perfect base camp from which to launch your Jamaican surf adventure.
Lime Tree Farm is an environmentally friendly coffee farm set in 10 acres at the heart of Jamaica’s Blue Mountains, the highest mountain range in the the Caribbean rising up to 7,402 ft.
As well as growing coffee, Lime Tree Farm provides you with the wonderful opportunity to see the real beauty of Jamaica and to meet her people by staying in one of four Blue Mountain eco-cottages. The holiday accommodation is run like a private house, except that as a guest you need do nothing other than relax, walk, eat and sleep in the most beautiful surroundings in total silence.
Our spacious cottages offer stunning unspoiled panoramic views down into Cedar and Yallus Valley and out across the Blue Mountains towards the eastern tip of Jamaica – a view that hasn’t changed in thousands of years.
For those looking for activities in the Blue Mountains, enjoy fresh air and rambling there are wonderful local mountain trails to be followed, enjoying Jamaica’s most prized natural treasures – its 3000 flowering species, 100’s of orchids and nearly 600 types of ferns. Not forgetting the myriad species of birds, 30 species endemic to Jamaica. For the hardy, a guided day hike to the summit of Blue Mountain Peak allows you to gaze across to Cuba just 90 miles away. There are few things that compare to hiking in the Blue Mountains of Jamaica.
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.
The Source is a movement of the people by the people and depends on the goodwill of those that believe in the mission of getting back to the Source of things. This is what we learn here, live here and what we teach here. Join the movement. Volunteer.
