Silversea Luxury Cruises A PORT ANTONIO

PORT ANTONIO

Port Antonio, on the Northeast coast of Jamaica, is the islands third largest port, mainly for bananas and coconuts. It is also an important tourist destination. In fact, it has been featured as a model of paradise in several famous Hollywood films such as Club Paradise and Cocktail. Port Antonio was a sleepy coastal town until the 1880s, when Lorenzo Dow Baker, an American businessman, started the banana trade in Jamaica and promoted Port Antonio as a vacation spot for wealthy Americans.

"Portie", as it is nicknamed, became a boom town. Even the movie star Errol Flynn was enamoured and ended up buying property here after his yacht washed ashore in 1946. Today it is still a major destination with plenty to do and see, from stunning scenery, creative arts and crafts, and cultural and historical sites.

Essence of Port Antonio

Discover the lovely coastal villages, islands and landmarks of Port Antonio during this picturesque, half-day sightseeing excursion.

Depart the pier for the scenic drive through the Titchfield Hill area, where homes adorned with Georgian architecture are positioned to view both the east and west harbours and Navy Island, which acceded to Governour Lynch in 1770, and, later, the British Navy in 1778. In 1793, Captain Bligh brought many exotic fruits to the island. In the 1940s, actor Errol Flynn acquired the island. See the ruins of the Jamaica Reef Hotel, also formerly-owned by actor Errol Flynn, and the remains of the southern section of the property, previously the site of the first Caribbean resort, the 400-room Titchfield Hotel.

Next, your drive continues eastward to the Folly Estate, built by Tiffany heiress Anne Olivia Tiffany and her husband, Alfred Mitchell. The Folly Estate is home to Monkey Island, which occupies three acres (about 1.2 hectares) of intense woodlands, specially cultivated to accommodate a rare species of monkeys that were brought to the island by explorer Hiram Bingham sometime after he rediscovered the Lost City of the Incas in Peru in 1912. Leaving the Folly Estate, pass by the exquisite San San area, home to residences of the very rich and famous, and Pellen Island, given to Princess Nina Dyer by Saddrudin Aga Khan, son of the Aga Khan.
