Fern Gully is not really a tourist attraction as you past through what in theory is an area on route to Ocho Rios or Kingston. It leads up to Flat Bridge which looks rather treacherous. It is impressive and scary at the same time as you then have to head up some serious hills and drivers in Jamaica are not... More

Very pretty drive. It really only takes about 20 minutes. Avoid the vendors along the way. They are very aggressive. Be sure to stop at the top for a nice view of the city.

I love driving through Fern Gully!!! But your stuck between a rock and a hard place , if you love the environment. On the lighter side Its so beautiful a definitely a treat to drive though and take pictures.

This is a beautiful area ... So green and lush. Our guide shared with us that the ferns are becoming even lusher since truck traffic is being diverted to another route. We stopped here to buy the luscious fruit!

The drive through the gully is beautiful and it was a great place to stop for pictures along the way. The foliage is lush and we enjoyed the laid back drive with our guide.

You travel through Fern Gulley on the way to Bob Marleys mausoleum, well worth stopping to enjoy the views.

Wonderful ride up the mountain, curvy, bumpy road but fun, and fabulous views of the native flora. There is one area that has a beautiful panorama photo op and alongside the road there is a small, well-mannered craft area that is friendly, not pushy at all! Swansea Craft Market. They have more variety of items and not just same things... More

Interesting to see all the ferns growing but this was used as a tourist trap to sell the usual tourist rubbish in laybys

This place is filled with all types of ferns. Not too much sunlight and beautiful. I just wished there was a river flowing through there rather than a road. Just breath taking. I'm an outdoor person and this place is just perfect.

We actually rented a cab with driver and this is one of the places he took us. His name was Oniel and his service was Oniel Morgan Taxi and Tours. He picked us up at our hotel and took us many different places a little less traveled for a true Jamaican experience for a very reasonable price. We shopped at... More
