Montego Bay, Jamaica is the second largest city in Jamaica by area and the fourth by population (after Kingston, Spanish Town and Portmore). It is mostly a tourist destination with hotels, restaurants, toursist attractions, duty free shopping, a cruise terminal and several beaches. The city is backed by picturesque low mountains. The coastland near Montego Bay is occupied by numerous tourist resorts, most newly built. I had the opportunity to visit one of these luxury resorts, The Royalton White Sands Resort.

If you are like me one of things you look for in a resort is the beach, after all traveling to Jamaica is all about tropical beauty and luxury. The beach here does not disappoint, the fine white sand and beautiful turquoise water here make this one of the most beautiful beaches I have been to. The water is shallow which makes it great for the kids to play in and a bonus the water is warm. There is even a man made island which you can walk out to and spend time on, makes for some beautiful photos as well.
Even though I only got to spend one day at this resort I could tell this resort prides itself on customer service and luxury.
The Royalton White Sands Resort is a fun-seekers haven. If you are looking for a great family, couple or even a singles vacation, this destination needs to feature at the top of your 'must-visit' list.
