Margaritaville in Ocho Rios is one of a franchise of excellent beachfront bar and grill attractions created by multi-millionaire Jimmy Buffet. They have somehow been able to maintain a high standard and yet keep the feel, rustic and unforced.

Margaritaville is a lounger’s or thrill-seeker’s paradise so choose one or sample both: everything is available here.

Margaritaville Ocho Rios is located conveniently in the heart of Ocho Rios, across from Ocho Rios Bay Beach in Island Village. It is a moderate 1hr and 32min drive by car from Montego Bay’s Donald Sangster International Airport, and is just steps away from the Ocho Rios Cruise Ship Pier.
