this area of Jamaica holds lots to tell, as you will come to know upon having a tour at Lovers Leap. The view is awesome, and you are allowed to stay as long as you want on the grounds

The view is absolutely breathtaking!!! You have to see it to believe it and the story behind it made it even more romantic. Entry fee was 300 JMD and definitely worth every penny. I've been visiting it for years and every time feels like my first time. I'll be back again!

The view is absolutely breathtaking. If you are ever in Jamaica, try to get down to Southfield to experience this place. It's magical.

We rode our scooter up to Lover's Leap from Billy's Bay. It was a beautiful drive! The views from Lover's Leap are amazing! Pictures cannot capture the feeling you have when you're up there. It's must-see if you're in the area!

Lovers' Leap is a distance from most of the resort areas. We traveled from Negril and it took about 1.5 hours. The last part was up a very windy, narrow road, but was well worth getting to the top! You don't realize how far up you are until you look down and see some specks in the water and realize... More

I'm still trying to get back down to earth. The view of this amazing place is so beautiful. I had to take several steps back and approach slowly several times. It drew me in so quickly that I thought I would pass out. If I could wake up every morning & see this place I would be one of the... More

It's very pretty, and we had tons of fun getting there on mopeds. The signage isn't great, so we got lost a bit, but that was part of the fun. But it's not something on a bucket list

The place where the couple leap out of love and died. In a very calm relaxing environment called Yardley Chase you will find this attraction Lovers Leap . Persons go there to look out over the cliff into the beautiful ocean!! And it's known to be a great spot for weddings , parties , and look out scenery. Walk around... More
