What would you do for love? The legend of Lover's Leap tells of the story of young enslaved lover who had a choice to make and decided that being together in the afterlife was better than living apart. The trip to Lover's Leap does take a little while depending on your starting point, how ever relax and enjoy the community... More

Warning this takes FOREVER to get to! It was endless driving up the mountain and we kept stopping and asking for directions because we thought we were just going in circles. The end result however was gorgeous. I went with my boyfriend and it was definitely romantic seeing the beautiful outlook down the side of the coast. You pay a... More

Lovers Leap has a Fantastic View of the ocean. They have food and drinks but we just bought a drink and took in the view for a few minutes as we were passing this location. The story associated with this location is sad but inspiring. True Love Story.

Took awhile to get to lovers leap but it was worth every second. Best views on the island. Hidden gem of Jamaica. Hire a good driver. The roads are a bit rough getting there.

My husband and I enjoyed our trip up to Lover's Leap from Treasure Beach. It was a cloudy afternoon, but still a pretty view. Our highlight actually was a hike we took just past the parking lot. There is a fenced in yard, but along the far side you can reach the trail head. It is a steep trail that... More

Wow... the views from Lover's Leap will leave you speechless, as the sea and the sky amalgamate to form one uniformed colour. This is a very cheap attraction with a tour which tells of a tragic love story. On a clear day the views is incredible allowing you to see as far as Manchester and Alligator Pond. I could have...

Its a great story and great view, If your in the area or passing along the south coast then take a stop. The only challenge seems to be security and they dont ever seem to have a complete menu of drinks or food as they run out of something every time I have gone. But stop, relax and enjoy the... More

We took a couple scooters up to lover leap, great views, 1700ft about the sea and worth the $3 admission.
