Jamaica’s natural wonders. Fern Gully is a
scenic 3-mile stretch of
Highway that winds through a rocky gorge
filled with different
varieties of ferns (Jamaica has the world's
largest number of fern species, more than
570) overhung by tall trumpet
and mahoe trees that meet overhead filtering
the sunlight to create a cool rain forest
along the course of an old riverbed.
Along the road through the
gully are many craft stalls; some of which
sell fine examples of Jamaican woodwork and
sculpture, others of which sell contemporary
and amusing sculpted caricatures.
