Jamaica’s blue heaven: Unique collection of family-owned villas offer taste of island’s unspoiled south

the nearest bartender is several hundred feet below us, back on the shores of Bluefields Bay on the lush southwest coast of Jamaica. But no worries — we’ve got our local guide Feldon, who shimmies 10 metres up a palm tree and tosses down four coconuts to quench our thirst. Once he’s back on the ground, a couple of hacks with Feldon’s knife reveals the clear water locked inside the unripe fruit. It’s sweet, refreshing and even replaces some of the electrolytes we’ve lost on our mid-morning journey. The only thing it’s missing is a shot of rum and a cocktail umbrella.
