The capital city of Jamaica, the largest of the Windward island chain in the Caribbean Sea, is Kingston. The bustling metropolis lies in southeast Jamaica and has a population of 750,000 people. While most visitors to Jamaica flock to the island’s white-sand beaches on the north coast, Ocho Rios, and Negril, Kingston can provide an unusual and wonderfully broad range of activities and attractions for tourists.
When you go to Kingston-town, here are three fun things to do:-
- The Coconut Industry Board outlet on Waterloo Avenue sells gallon bottles of fresh coconut water and coconut pastries and sweets. They have a soda fountain with the sweet, clear, refreshing, and potassium-rich contents of the coconut to serve in a variety of container sizes. You may even bring your own container. While you’re there, don’t forget to check out the museum of the Board, which is located just behind the store and has some amazing displays about coconuts.
- At Jollies Restaurant in Port Henderson, head to the take-out window for fried fish and festivals (elongated cornmeal and flour-based fried dumpling). Visit Hellshire Beach, where vendors cook fresh fruit-de-la-Mer to order in big frying pans on coal stoves right on the beach. Aunty and Prendy are our favorite ‘fish and festive-makers at Hellshire. Sundays feature DJ music, as well as other activities.
- Superplus Supermarket and Megamart on Upper Waterloo Road are two excellent options for purchasing foodstuffs. Blue Mountain Coffee, overproof rum, spices, and condiments are all available at bargain prices at ‘non-tourist’ locations.
When you want to get the genuine flavor of Kingston, there’s a lot to do. Enjoy yourself!
