Abeokuta is a Heritage, Health and Eco-Tourist Attraction located in Dean's Valley Westmoreland. The Park was officially opened on January 5th, 2003 by the Nigerian High Commissioner, Her Excellency Florentina Ukonga. Abeokuta is a beautiful unspoiled natural Jamaican Attraction that has been a breathtaking and rejuvenating experience for guests locally and internationally. There is nothing like Abeokuta on the entire island and the closest place to this is Abeokuta in Nigeria, Africa to which Abeokuta, Jamaica is directly linked for over three hundred years. This occurred when the first slaves that were taken to the Parish of Westmoreland were brought to this Plantation from Abeokuta, Nigeria.The Park itself occupies 13 acres of land on a hill that was the original Plantation Yard. The remains of the Great House still stand magnificently fashioned from pure cut 2' thick stone. On the property is the oldest swimming pool in Jamaica which goes back three hundred years, with near Olympic dimensions being 71ft long and 47ft wide ranging from 4 to 10 feet in depth. There is a rope swing too!Mineral Water is supplied to this historic pool and a "Kiddie Pool" via an aqueduct 1/4 mile long. Beginning at the riverhead, water flows constantly and ends in two separate waterfalls. The therapeutic value of the Mineral Water has been highly touted in the relief of Arthritis as well as muscle or bone problems due to the concentration of Iron, Calcium, Chloride, Magnesium and several other natural minerals.The view from Abeokuta Paradisee Nature Park is quite spectacular and breathtaking due to the "bird's eye" altitude encompassing the distant ocean, spreading fields of sugar cane and enormous "paw-paw" fields that appear as a carpet of grass. There is the "Olumo Rock" which you can see on the Nature Tour. This rock is found in one other place in the world, Abeokuta, Nigeria, Africa! Abeokuta is a crime-free community with no hassles and the beautifully kept grounds are Harmonious and Tranquil with flowers and fruit trees all around.Abeokuta Paradise Nature Park is just off the B8 Main Highway between Ferris Cross and Montego Bay just a few miles from Ferris Cross. We can arrange reliable and safe drivers to collect you from whereever you are and return you safely. We can cater to all requirements, from private parties, weddings, marriage blessings, special moments, Reiki, massages, crochet lessons, BBQ's, Bar's, picnics, chillout and swimming. All is welcome. « less

Six weeks ago, we were in Negril. it's taken me this long to write a review as I didn't want to leave and it was too hard to think about it too much on our return! Now that I'm settled back into normal life, I am feeling ready to write. If you are of independent mind and spirit you absolutely... More

If you want to experience something unique and relaxing near Negril I would recommend Abeokuta. Bring your camera for the luscious flowers and spectacular views. And don't forget your swimsuit for the refreshing aqua mineral pool.

A beautiful day off the beaten track and off the beach. Thanks to a chance meeting with Annie on the beach the day before we were able to have an incredible day of peace and tranquility. Just a short drive from Negril, thanks to Annie and her husband we were able to experience Abeokuta Paradise Nature Park. Bredda Man was... More

We have just returned from our first (long overdue) trip to Jamaica. Having looked at Trip Advisor before we left, I came across the listing for Abeokuta and once we were in Jamaica, I got in touch with Annie via their facebook page. This proved to be the best use of facebook I've ever made! Annie was fabulous and arranged... More

We visited Abeokuta in June and I can tell you it was very worth the trip. The drive from Negril was a little long but incredibly scenic. Once we arrived, the view from the pool was stunning and the water was incredibly refreshing. We spent all day there and loved every minute. I will return for sure!
