Location of Hagley Gap in Jamaica

Hagley Gap is a settlement in Saint Thomas parish in southeastern Jamaica. This small rural community is located 10 miles (16 km) from Kingston near the top of the Blue Mountains in Jamaica. It is known as a farming village with its primary source of revenue is the world famous Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee.

Hagley Gap is roughly a 7 miles (11 km) hike from the Blue Mountain Peak and a popular destination for hikers and camping enthusiasts. Jamaicans prefer to reach the peak at sunrise after the 3 to 5 hour hike so night time hikes are the norm. After reaching the peak a hiker has an incredible view of both the North and South Coast of Jamaica and the surrounding ocean.

The Blue Mountain Project (BMP) is a nonprofit organization and a partnership has been established between the BMP and the community of Hagley Gap. They are currently working together on building a medical clinic to help meet their basic health needs, operating nutrition programs and providing job training to the community.[1]

Prestige Village Shoppes Limited (PVSL) is a registered company (limited by shares) in Jamaica. One of its mission is to improve the socio-economic development of the community while working with the other local organisations to help identify talents in sports, community leadership, health & hygiene and to increase the education levels at all ages.[2]
