Long drive but the scenery is amazing. Beautiful rainforest. Plenty of interesting villages along the way to try local snacks and meet people.

A beautiful place perfect for romantic pictures. Definitely awe-inspiring. Nature in the Caribbean is something to behold.

Trees over hang the road which makes it very shady. Lots of different trees. Found it kind of boring.

We didn't stop in this area, but we drove through Fern Gully on our way to another excursion. It was amazing to see, great for those who like to take photos! Be sure to watch the animated film Fern Gully before visiting here!

Don’t miss this little patch of heaven. The TA reviews were a mixed bag so I had a touch of skepticism. A quick trip is easily paired with another outing. We loved FG.

I visited Fern Gully whilst in holiday. The visit lasted about 15/20 minutes estimated. When you drive through Fern Gully you surrounded by green swaths of green trees on either side of the roads. It is truly beautiful!

I don't think that "walking" through Fern Gully is too feasible, as it is one of the main roads that locals traverse to get from Ocho Rios to Spanish Town and other locations along the way. Traveling through Fern Gully can... More

Have good time in Ocho Rios! The round trip to Fren Gully will last about 20 minutes. A stop to look at local art( that is, if anyone is exhibiting) might add a few minutes. It is beautiful, but a very short tour. You might... More
