Grotto Lake

Deep within one of Jamaica's most mysterious natural attractions, Green Grotto, is Grotto Lake. As guests explore Green Grotto, they can take time to marvel at the beauty of the subterranean lake that gives off an eerie aura.


Set in Saint Ann Parish, 1.8 miles north of Dumbarton, Grotto Lake always welcomes visitors who are rooming in this part of Jamaica. But even if you aren't staying particularly close, you should feel free to stop by for some fun in the sun. It's 2.5 miles west of Runaway Bay.

Nearby Restaurants

Of course, one of the most enjoyable options while spending an afternoon exploring the area could be sharing a dish at a restaurant within traveling distance of this body of water. Ultimate Jerk Center, which offers Jamaican meals, is also the most convenient option for visitors of this lake.

Also close-by, you'll find options like Don Pablo Gourmet Restaurant and Kidz Buffet where you and your party should try a bit of American dishes and experience the culture of Jamaica.
