What are the different landforms in Jamaica? The country can be divided into three landform regions: the eastern mountains, the central valleys and plateaus, and the coastal plains. The highest area is the Blue Mountains range.
Trelawny is bordered by the parishes of St Ann in the east, St James in the west, and St Elizabeth and Manchester in the south. Most of the parish is flat, with wide plains such as Queen of Spain’s Valley, and Windsor. The highest point in the parish is Mount Ayr which is 3,000 feet (910 m) above sea level.
Jamaica has a varied topography with rugged mountains, some of which are volcanic, and narrow valleys and a coastal plain. It is located 90 miles (145 km) south of Cuba and 100 miles (161 km) west of Haiti. The climate of Jamaica is tropical and hot and humid on its coast and temperate inland.
Jamaica’s main natural resources are bauxite, gypsum and limestone. Fertile soils suitable for agriculture are found on the lowlands and coastal plains. Jamaica is renowned for its biodiversity, with over three thousand species of plants, of which about one-quarter are found nowhere else on Earth.
It was developed as a port from which sugar was exported and dates back to around 1730. The Spanish name Savanna-la-mar means “Plain by the sea” refers to its immediate environment.
Kingston is located on the Liguanea Plain on the southeastern coast, between the sea and the St.

A landform is a feature on the Earth’s surface that is part of the terrain. Mountains, hills, plateaus, and plains are the four major types of landforms. Minor landforms include buttes, canyons, valleys, and basins. Tectonic plate movement under the Earth can create landforms by pushing up mountains and hills.
The country can be divided into three landform regions: the eastern mountains, the central valleys and plateaus, and the coastal plains. The highest area is that of the Blue Mountains.
Queen of Spains Valley is a valley and is located in Jamaica. The estimate terrain elevation above seal level is 103 metres.
Gales Valley (like nearby Hampden Estate) appears to straddle the borber between St James and Trelawny. It was originally owned by William Gale (whence the name) who also owned York.
In geography, a plain is a flat expanse of land that generally does not change much in elevation, and is primarily treeless. Plains occur as lowlands along valleys or at the base of mountains, as coastal plains, and as plateaus or uplands.
Geography is the study of places and the relationships between people and their environments. Geographers explore both the physical properties of Earth’s surface and the human societies spread across it. Geography seeks to understand where things are found, why they are there, and how they develop and change over time.
It has been noted by some that the Caribbean’s most important resource is its tropical island setting, which has generated an important tourism sector.
Human Geography is the study of the relationship between people and places. Why study human geography? It examines human societies and how they develop, their culture, economy and politics, all within the context of their environment.
Elizabeth began in the Pedro Plains where the Tainos, the first known inhabitants of Jamaica, occupied the coastline and lead a simple life.
At its source in the mountains, it tumbles down gorges, then fed by its many tributaries, flows across a large plain, known as the Savannah, before it creeps sluggishly through morass lands and empties into the sea. Some of the main tributaries feeding the Black River include the Y.S., Borad, Grass and Horse Savannah.
Saint Ann is the largest parish in Jamaica. It is situated on the north coast of the island, in the county of Middlesex, roughly halfway between the eastern and western ends of the island.
