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.
