It is the beaches of Port Antonio which put it on the map. Though the waters can sometimes be rough, there is no doubting their almost pristine beauty – and the fact that they are far less crowded than other resort towns on the island is a bonus that most visitors appreciate. Here you'll find a mixture of public and private beaches, but even on private shores you can pay for entrance.
You'll find a handful of beaches to consider in the area. Whether you enjoy people watching, or you like having more of the beach to yourself, you should be able to find just the right beach. Just click on the name of each beach for a detailed review of that particular stretch of sand.
A beach with snorkeling is Crusoe's Beach. Crusoe's Beach features white sand and bright aquamarine waters, with thick greenery lining the edge of the beach.
Another good choice for snorkelers is Navy Island. Navy Island is only accessible by boat.
Errol Flynn Marina Beach: A small and gorgeous stretch of sand right near the marina, this quiet spot is a place for visitors to come for a bit of solitude as they take in the peaceful surroundings.
