KEEPING FIT -- TREATS FOR YOU SWIMMERS, JOGGERS AND WALKERS!
Jogging and walking
Mammee Bay is a residential development containing mostly single-family dwellings, each of which is on a large lot. If you like to jog and take long walks you might like the quiet roadways that cut through Mammee Bay, which contains RIVIERA_VILLA.
If you prefer having very private but nevertheless vigorous walks, put on good walking shoes or sneakers, and just walk INSIDE the fence that surrounds the edge of the Villa property -- about 250 metres to go around once!
Do that six times in a row and you will appreciate how much you can do to keep fit without ever leaving the property! Here's one reason why. The property slopes upward from the Beach Road, giving you a gentle hill-climbing experience. This walk is better than walking on the road if you need to pamper your knees as you walk. This is because of the thick layer of grass under your feet.
However, the ground underneath the grass is uneven, so be sure to keep your eyes on where you will be placing your foot. Also, do not walk under the coconut trees; because nuts fall at random times and the timing of their fall is not predicatble.
At the nearby Bamboo Blu Beach Club you can get information about or arrange for deep sea fishing, horse-back riding, water skiing, sailing, snorkelling, etc. for fees. There is an 18 hole golf course at Runaway Bay (30 minutes drive away).
Fun and games on nearby hotel property
You can visit either the Ocho Rios Riu or the Jewel hotels (both very close to RIVIERA_VILLA) and arrange for limited passes for breakfast, lunch or dinners, including entertainment. These passes are for couples. The dinner pass covers the period from early evening to after midnight, and when we last checked it costs a couple about $120 (US$). That covers dinner, shows, games, etc. Once you have your pass, you can enjoy every amenity available to the regular hotel guests.
