Two legends suggest how Runaway Bay
was named. One legend attributes its name to when Spaniards fled from Jamaica to this point in 1655 and the other legend has its history in the time when African slaves made a getaway from Cuba
by canoe. Make your footprints on the sands of the beach at Runaway Bay
, an one-street village stretching for three kilometers along the A1. They will be easy to see because it usually has fewer people visiting it than its neighbouring beaches.
The esteemed performer of reggae music
and the man who introduced the Rastafari movement to a worldwide audience, Bob Marley
, is remembered in the museum bearing his name in nearby Nine Mile
. In 1999, Time
magazine chose Bob Marley and the Wailers' Exodus
as the greatest album of the 20th century. In your condo rental or in the peaceful surroundings of your bedroom in your villa rental, take time to reflect. In the words of Bob Marley’s Three Little Bird’s
: “Rise up this mornin', Smiled with the risin' sun, Three little birds, Pitch by my doorstep, Singin' sweet songs, Of melodies pure and true, Sayin', ‘This is my message to you-ou-ou:’ Singin': Don't worry 'bout a thing, 'Cause every little thing gonna be all right.”
