Getting to Villa Elia
Treasure Beach is a 2 hour+ drive from Montego Bay Airport and a 3 hour drive from Kingston.
Whether you'll arrive from one of the airports or a town on the island—one of our friendly drivers will pick you up and bring you to Villa Elia regardless of where you are in Jamaica. For inquiries and bookings, feel free to contact us via e-mail or phone anytime.
Some of our more adventurous guests prefer renting a car, which can be arranged at the airport which include companies such as Hertz, Avis or Budget. We have noticed however that with returning guests, even the most tough-hearted have arranged for a car to bring them to the villa. A popular option in such cases would be to rent a local car and take nearby road trips to places like YS Waterfalls or Appleton Rum Factory. You can find out more local tips about Jamaica's Southern coast from our Villa Elia team.
