The Blue Mountains cover much of the eastern side of Jamaica. The town of Newcastle serves as a base for many travelers in the area.

The Blue Mountains are known for the mists that shroud them and give them a bluish cast. They rise steeply from the coast, reaching over 7,000 feet in less than an hour’s drive.

Old-growth forests are protected in the Blue Mountain and John Crow Mountain National Park, with hiking trails.

Local farms producing famous Blue Mountain Coffee are common in the area, and many are open for visits.

Overall Atmosphere: Natural
A Natural Atmosphere includes a diverse range of destinations with outdoor-oriented features, including both water-based (beaches, rivers, lakes, etc) and land-based (mountains, forests, deserts, etc). It also includes specific outdoor activities, ranging from water adventuring (eg, kayaking, sailing) to land adventuring (eg, hiking, biking).

Natural Interests tend to be:
(a) outdoors-oriented, and therefore more dependent on weather conditions
(b) less easily accessible and more physically demanding than other destination categories.

In some cases (eg, rafting and climbing), this includes a significantly increased degree of adventure (or danger, depending on one's viewpoint).
Featuring mainly outdoors-oriented natural attractions.

Lowland Mountains
The Blue Mountain range sprawls across the eastern portion of the island, rising steeply in an area so compact that it is possible to drive from the coastal plains to an elevation of over 7,000 feet in less than an hour. The mountains are shrouded almost perpetually by mists that give Jamaica’s highest mountains their bluish color.
Hiking and Trekking
The most popular hike is the Peak Trail, starting in Abbey Green and leading to Blue Mountain Peak. There are wooden cabins here with bunks for sleeping, space for tents and simple sanitary arrangements including a shower.
