Navy Island: Port Antonio Attractions & Sightseeing, Jamaica
Navy Island is a small island off the coast of Port Antonio in Portland Parish, Jamaica, formerly owned by actor Errol Flynn.
Navy Island Opposite the Titchfield Peninsula and West Harbour. Navy Island gets its name from the British Navel base which was set up there in the 18th century to protect the Port Antonio and to service ships.
More recently, the island was owned by Errol Flynn, who entertained his jetsetting friends throughout the 1950s. Until fairly recently, the Island has been maintained as a tourist resort and attraction, with a club bar, beaches, watersports facilities, marina, wedding chapel and African style cottages.
Navy Island is immediately visible lying just offshore as you enter along the coastal road from either direction into Port Antonio. You can take a ferry across to the island, which gained its name from its role as a naval station during much earlier colonial times. Passing into private hands, Navy Island came to be owned by the movie star Errol Flynn. It's said he won it during a poker game; whatever the case, he adored Jamaica and Navy Island and came here frequently during the 1940's in his yacht, the "Zaca".
Near the bar area is a wall with posters and mementoes of the adventurous Mr. Flynn and his swashbuckling movie career. Get yourself a window table at the restaurant for an excellent panorama of Port Antonio harbor and surrounding coastline.
Spend a day on the island once owned by actor Errol Flynn. It's just a sevenminute boat ride from the mainland to this hideaway, which is home to several small cottages, a bar and a watersports operator. The ferry operates around the clock from West Street Harbor. Navy Island is a quiet place for a picnic.
