Maroon Cultural Center Tours and Shore Excursion Overview
Charles Town Maroon Community
Charles Town is located inland near the town of Buff Bay in the parish of Portland. The settlement emerged around 1754. Charles Town as a Maroon Community was not named on maps until 1832. Prior to this date, it was identified as New Crawford Town. Unlike other Maroon settlements Charles Town is not located in the deep mountain valleys, but rather, on the flat coastal plains. It is one of four major Maroon settlements in Jamaica. The others are Accompong, St. Elizabeth, Scotts Hall, St. Mary and Moore Town in Portland. Three major attractions in the community are the museum, the library and the Asafu Ground. In front of the museum is a library which has many books on Maroon heritage.
Options and Extras (See Tour Options Below)
Blue Lagoon (The Blue Hole)
The world famous "bottomless Blue Lagoon" was once the home of Robin Moore, the writer of the French Connection, Green Beret and other stories. Swim in the Lagoon, or sun on a floating raft in the center of the Lagoon. The deep lagoon was once thought to be bottomless but divers have since determined it's depth to be around 180 feet. The site was originally called The Blue Hole. However, following the success of the Brooke Shields film "The Blue Lagoon" which was filmed here, the site was re-named "The Blue Lagoon".
Boston Jerk Center
Boston Jerk stand the birthplace of jerk pork and chicken, located right outside Great Hut's entrance. Boston Beach is located east of Port Antonio in addition to being a spectacular cove is the area that gave us Jerk Pork. Many Jamaicans still believe that this is the only place to get authentic Jerk. Spend the morning in the sun, then visit one of the nearby jerk pits for your lunch. Boston Beach a deep crescent of fine white sand protected by an offshore reef. There are restroom, changing rooms and showers, a snack bar, and shaded picnic tables for eating the peppery jerk chicken, fish and pork sold by vendors along the road.
Folly Point Lighthouse
Folly Point Lighthouse - Tip of Folly Peninsula, 5 minute drive east of Port Antonio. The Folly Point Lighthouse was built in 1888. The Tower is constructed of masonry and is fire proof. It flashes a white light of 2 seconds duration followed by 8 seconds of darkness. The light is visible for a distance of thirteen miles. The lighthouse marks the entrance to the East and West Harbour of Port Antonio.
Long Bay Beach
In recent years, Long Bay has become something of a destination for frugal travelers, especially backpackers. In winter we've sometimes encountered young backpackers experiencing Jamaica on the cheap. This beach was used as a setting for the cable movie Treasure Island. Offshore is a tiny islet, Pelew Island.
Reach Falls one of the most beautiful spots in all of Jamaica. Recognised as one of the most beautiful natural waterfalls of Jamaica, Reach Falls is a series of cascades that tumble over limestone tiers from one jade-coloured pool to the next. All that changed after the release of the film Cocktail. Tom Cruise and his film girlfriend indulged in some aquatic hanky-panky beneath these waterfalls.
