What's the Weather Like in Montego Bay in March


Spring has officially sprung in March and temperatures begin to climb a little compared to the few months beforehand. Having said that, Jamaica's temperatures overall don't fluctuate enormously, and the island doesn't experience the same traditional seasons that some other countries do. Still in dry season however, the average March temperature is a wonderfully warm 26°C, with a high of 29°C, and an evening low of around 22°C, meaning air-con is an essential.


Getting out and about is not a probably in March, as you're not likely to experience much in the way of rain, with only an average precipitation of 30mm, or 9 days throughout the month experiencing some rainfall; although as before, any rain experienced is likely to be short-lived.

Average Sunshine Hours and Sea Temperature

Beach time is a good idea, as the sun certainly has its hat on now, with 9 sunshine hours every day on average, and a sea temperature of around 27°C. Swimming in Montego Bay's calm waters is a great idea to cool down, as well as checking out the underwater residents with a spot of scuba diving and snorkelling.

Montego Bay Beach for March

Dead End Beach

Also known as 'Buccaneer Beach', Dead End Beach is one of the smaller bathing spots in Montego Bay which is as popular with locals as it is with tourists. Despite its rather compromised size, this is a lovely beach which offers wonderful views across the bay. There are no facilities here, although the beach is invariably less crowded than other beaches such as Doctor's Cave. 

Bars and Restaurants

Petit Pariz

Those in the mood for some French cuisine in Montego Bay should pay a visit to Petit Pariz Restaurant. Located within the Hyatt Zilara Hotel complex, this elegant and upscale eatery offers a range of options and caters to vegetarians and those with similar dietary requirements. Make use of the warm weather in the evenings and dine on their outdoor terrace. 

Seagrape Terrace

For blissful al fresco dining, Seagrape Terrace is known as one of the best outdoor restaurants in Jamaica and operates throughout the day. Diners have the option to choose from the a-la-carte menu or from one of the many internationally-themed buffets. Seafood is a big contender on the menu at this restaurant and it's not to be missed.

Located along Poinsettia Drive, this family-friendly establishment serves a pleasing selection of drinks and makes a great spot to kick back in the evening. There's also a casual menu of light bites and bar snacks to choose from if you're feeling peckish. 

Things to do in Montego Bay in March

Green Grotto Caves

One of Jamaica's most eminent natural attractions, Green Grotto Caves is a site you really can't afford to miss during your visit. A short drive away from Montego Bay, these natural wonders have had a colourful history: originally inhabited by the Arawak Indians, they were later used as a hideout by the Spanish, who were avoiding being run out of the country by British colonialists; in the 20th century they were used by smugglers sending arms to nearby Cuba. With abundant natural pools, unique rock formations and light holes, these caves have an atmosphere like few other places on the island. 

Rockland Bird Sanctuary 

Winged animal enthusiasts should check out the Rockland Bird Sanctuary in the St. James Parish. A 20-minute drive from Montego Bay, you can join a tour of the sanctuary and come up close with the hummingbird, the national bird of Jamaica which is known locally as the "doctor bird". When your tour ends you can also take a walk through the tranquil onsite gardens, home to a variety of herbs and trees. 

Blue Mountains

A hiker's paradise, the Blue Mountains are a sight you'll want to see if you're looking to immerse yourself in the nature of the country and escape your resort for a day. Somewhat further afield, you'll encounter many winding mountainside roads but it's worth the journey to Blue Mountain Peak as the views are simply second-to-none.

Croydon in the Mountains

If you want to experience the splendour of the mountains in a location nearer to Montego Bay, Croydon in the Mountains makes an excellent compromise. Take a tour of the award-winning citrus and pineapple plantation which bears significance as the birthplace of Samuel Sharpe, a local hero who led the fight to abolish slavery on the island.
