Out and About: Trip to the Blue Mountains + Strawberry Hill
The Blue Mountains are one of the world’s most mystical landscapes. More than just where Jamaica’s famous coffee comes from, the Blue Mountains are home to Strawberry Hill, another jewel in the crown of the Island Outpost hotels. At 3,100 feet above sea level, to spend a night or two in the Blue Mountains is to experience a Jamaica you never knew existed. To find out more about staying at two Island Outpost hotels during one trip to Jamaica, we suggest you see our Two Post Outpost invitation.
Plant a Tree
Michael Caine, Kate Moss, Quincy Jones and Johnny Depp have all planted trees at GoldenEye. You can, too, by making a donation of U.S. $1,000 to the Oracabessa Foundation, which works with the town of Oracabessa on sustainable, local development.

Read about Firefly
Low Cay is the main beach at GoldenEye — 500 smooth, sandy feet of beach shaped like a croissant. It’s so wide and sprawling, it can sometimes feel like its own private, deserted island. While Button Beach — our rustic beach that’s home to a bar shack — is as adorable as its name implies. Our water sports guides, helpers and instructors are trained lifeguards and skilled sailors. They will assist with beach towels, kayaks and Glass Bottom boats. If you’re into swimming with the fishes, head to Snorkeler’s Cove — that’s where you can grab a snorkel and fins before exploring one of the many coral reefs close by.
Stand Up Paddle Boarding
The fast growing sport of stand-up paddle boarding is a wonderful way to enjoy our lagoon, Oracabessa Bay and the open sea beyond.
GoldenEye’s varied shoreline lends itself to exploration by kayak. Depart from Wata Sport Beach.
Learn how to sail with our certified Wata Sports team at Button Beach. Navigate the Caribbean Sea on one of GoldenEye’s Sun Fish or Hobie Cat sailboats.
The warm, clear GoldenEye waters are surrounded by extensive coral gardens. Equipment is complimentary. Check out a GoldenEye fish guide from Wata Sports before you depart.
Glass Eye – The Glass Bottom Boat
A glass bottom boat excursion is an ideal way to warm up to under-water adventures. Over 700 species of fish can be found in the waters of Jamaica’s turquoise sea, amongst scores of corals – purple stag horn, red fire, brains and lacey sea fans called tubipora. Complimentary Glass Bottom Boat excursions depart daily at 9AM from the Watersports Beach, weather conditions permitting. Please contact Concierge on extension 7145 for reservations.
The best pool at GoldenEye is the Lagoon: think of it as a 250-meter pool! Part seawater and part fresh spring water, the Lagoon is always warm, always clear and almost always completely tranquil. It’s ideal for either splashing around or swimming laps.
Additionally, there are fresh water swimming pools at the Bizot Bar and at Shabeen. The GoldenEye splash pool (yes, it’s shaped like an eye) is at the very tip where Low Cay extends to the sea.
GoldenEye’s Tennis Court is floodlit and is available day and night on a first come, first served, fair share arrangement.
