Picturesque Portland

On Thursday we asked you to tell us your favourite chill spot or enclave in Jamaica. The question made the rounds on Twitter and voila…here is our first response.

The home of jerk, beautiful beaches, lush vegetation, and a favourite of international celebrities – that is Portland.

Here are a few photos from our Portland Parish Profile which provides interesting tidbits about this parish such as:

Some of Jamaica’s finest beaches – Boston, Long, Dragon and San San Bays, Frenchman’s Cove and Winifred’s Beach—are found in Portland. As are unique water features like the Rio Grande, Blue Hole, Reach Falls, and Nonsuch Caves. The capital town, Port Antonio, is home to the Errol Flynn Marina and the annual Henry Morgan Port Antonio International Marlin Tournament. [more]
