A quarter-mile boat-ride offshore in Parottee Bay stands an implausible shack on stilts that just happens to be one of the best bars in Jamaica.

The best golf course in the Caribbean may just be haunted by the ghost of a murderous nineteenth-century plantation mistress. But hey, don't let that stop you. Starting at its highest elevation and meandering from one photogenic vista to the next, this 6,758-yard, par-71 course will challenge and 'bewitch' in equal measure. And you can blame old Annie Palmer for any lost balls...
