Explore Port Antonio and Jamaica's East Coast
Explore Jamaica's dreamy east coast landscape and experience rugged cliffs, peaks, waterfalls, and ancient forts. Port Antonio and the east is one of the lesser visited areas of Jamaica, in part due to the lack of a nearby airport. Yet the Port Antonio region is home to some of the lushest and most spectacular scenery on the island, and a string of the alluring public beaches for which Jamaica is known.

A Walk in History

Large arrow left

Walking through the town of Port Antonio is like a refreshing blast from the past. The narrow streets are lined with rustic Georgian and Victorian buildings such as the Neo-romanesque Anglican stone church (1840), which evidently has stood the test of time. A sunset promenade past the Musgrave Market or along Harbour Street is a great introduction, where local vendors sell cold coconut jellies while schoolers flex their skills in pick-up football matches set against a striking coastal vista.

There is also a craft market, art gallery, supermarkets and commercial center offering a variety of shopping alternatives. The street is a historic "walk in the park."
