Make a holiday rental home or villa in Ossuccio, Italy your home away from home

Port Antonio, on Jamaica’s North Coast grew as a result of the island’s banana trade. Today, it remains a busy Jamaican port, but has an added touch of glamour after being featured in several Hollywood movies and becoming a holiday favourite with many A-listers in the Caribbean.

Things to do in Port Antonio, Jamaica

There are a whole heap of activities available in the Port Antonio area, enough to keep any family occupied for at least a week. Some of the highlights include bamboo rafting in the Rio Grande Valley, horseback riding or hiking in the Blue Mountains, and hunting for birds and butterflies around the stunningly beautiful Reich Falls.

Those journeying into the Blue Mountains can also visit the Jablum Coffee Plantation, home of the famous Blue Mountain coffee, and learn about the history of the product from colonial times to the present day as well as sample the different brews.

Water sports are of course also plentiful in the area, with Scuba diving, snorkelling, swimming, surfing and deep sea fishing all on offer and easily accessed from any Port Antonio self-catering accommodation.

Visitors can take a hike or one of the many available day tours to the Blue Lagoon, one of Jamaica’s most photographed spots. The beautiful blue-green colour of the lagoon comes from the depth of the water, and makes this place popular with couples wishing to tie the knot.

There are also plenty of opportunities in the area for visitors to learn more about Jamaica’s heritage. Port Antonio regularly hosts arts and crafts fairs as well as exhibits and workshops on many cultural aspects of Jamaican life.

Many come to the island to relax, and there are of course several stunning beaches at which to kick back and enjoy a book around the Port Antonio area including Winnie Beach and Boston Beach.

The hotel is majestically situated on a hill side with spectacular panoramic view of the Boston Bay area. The room is very spacious, clean and comfortable with island inspired decor that perfectly compliments the ambiance. The wrap around balcony with hammock was the cherry on top. We will be back as its our new home. Thanks John.
