Fodor's Review

As legend has it, two slaves who were in love chose to jump off this 1,700-foot cliff rather than be captured by their master. Today it's a favorite stop with travelers, who enjoy a drink at the bar along with one of the most stunning sea views in Jamaica.

Not to be missed - most beautiful sight in the country!

We have been to Jamaica 5 times. Lover's Leap - It's so high up you cannot distinguish where the water and sky actually meet. I saw it on google images and other sites and surprised my newlywed hubby with a trip up there because he loves to take photos. It was closed for renovations then (4/2011) - but our friend and regular guide manuvered us over to a great spot! It remains our desktop wallpaper almost 2 years later!
