Nestled between the trees and the lush, green vegetation of Wilshire in Anchovy is the Rocklands Bird Sanctuary. The sanctuary is home to at least 15 of Jamaica’s most exquisite bird species including doves, finches, humming birds also Doctor birds (Jamaica’s national bird). The bird sanctuary is located at a quaint little house, home to a local Jamaican. The setting here is absolutely peaceful and relaxing. As soon as you enter the sanctuary, the humming birds will be making their approach just for you to put out your finger for them to perch. It is definitely a bird lovers paradise and a must see!
We will then travel to downtown Montego Bay where we will stop at historic sites such as Sam Sharpe Square, The St. James Parish Church which was built in 1775 and which is one of the oldest functioning church in Jamaica. We will then visit the Richmond Hill Great House which was built in 1804 and is located on top of a hill, almost in the center of Montego Bay. From there you get the most beautiful panoramic view of the city of Montego Bay. You will be taken for lunch & shopping (optional) before going back to the resort/cruise ship port.
