“Longer drive than you think”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

We visited in a rental car, on a wet afternoon, attracted by the story of the two slave lovers who preferred to jump to their deaths rather than be parted by their owners. It did not seem a long drive, when studying the map back in our hotel room, but there are few signposts in this part of Jamaica and it took us longer than expected to reach the destination. The roads are narrow and twisting with potholes of various shapes and sizes. As others have said, it is a fairly desolate spot (particularly in driving rain...) and it is the romance of its history that may make the tricky drive there worth your trouble.

“Local folk lore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

We visited lovers leap on a bit of an overcast afternoon, but the views were still stunning, especially appreciating the drop to the ocean below. Managed to find it quite easily after a few helpful directions!

“A little of Jamaican history set on the most amazing hill with a awesome view of the coastline”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

The tourguide at Lovers leap was very well informed....she related the story of the tragic lovers with all the right inflections. I wanted to cry but my breath was taken away by the view....hundreds of feet above the sea....the expanse of the beautiful blue caribbean sea going on for miles till it seemingly meets the blue skies....just breathtaking!
