Reggae music fans the world over make the pilgrimage to Bob Marley's grave site at Nine Mile, where he was born. The two-room shack in which he lived is open to view as a museum and memorial, alongside which is the mausoleum in which Marley and his half-brother are buried. The site also has a vegetarian restaurant and small shop. Reggae concerts are held at Nine Mile each year on 6 February, Marley's birthday. Many tourists in Jamaica miss out on the beauty of the rural and inland regions, so this excursion is also a great way to explore the lovely scenery around Nine Mile and Mount Zion.
