Port Antonio Historic Tours and Shore Excursion Overview
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".
Errol Flynn Marina
Port Antonio, located on the North East corner of the Caribbean Island of Jamaica, was made famous by Errol Flynn. He bought this private island, built his beautiful island hut and invited guests from his boat or seaplane parked in the harbor. He lost the island in one night of gambling.While much has been made of Flynn's wicked, wicked ways, his passion for the sea was just as great. In fact, he often took the helm of his yacht Zaca, a 118-foot schooner, on transoceanic voyages.
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.
Musgrave Market on West Street, between Port Antonio Square and Main Square. Port Antonio is not a shopping bazaar like Montego Bay and Ocho Rios. Most activity centers around Musgrave Market, on West Street, in the center of town. Musgrave Market is a real "off the beaten track" attraction in Port Antonio. Browse around the stalls selling fresh fruit and vegetables, crafts, clothes and cooked food.
Titchfield Hill (Titchfield Peninsula)
One of the most unique features of Port Antonio is its double harbour. The Titchfield Peninsula separates the East Harbour from the West Harbour and together with Navy Island. The Titchfield Peninsula was the first place to be settled by the English, and is known as the oldest settlement of the The Barracktown. The buildings in the Titchfield Peninsula possess excellent examples of the architectural styles representing different periods in the formation and development of the town. They reflect Jamaican Georgian, Victorian New England, Cape Cod Victorian, Jamaican Vernacular and Victorian styles gingerbread. The predominant style is vernacular Architecture.
