The South Coast of Jamaica is relatively untouched and rural in nature. The parish of Saint Elizabeth is the bread basket of Jamaica and much of the food consumed locally is produced there. After breakfast we begin our trek through Montego Bay going West then we go over the mountains going South through Anchovy, Bethel Town, New Market until we finally reach the sea on the other side at Middle Quarters. A quick stop for the famous Middle Quarters peppered shrimp washed down with a cold red stripe will rejuvenate even the most weary traveller.
