Portsmouth is not one of those picturesque towns in the Caribbean which consist of sprawling resorts with manicured lawns that lead the well-kept beaches and crystal clear blue waters.  It has a more rustic, natural appeal, and although things may appear to be a bit run down, they don't feel unloved or uncared for.  Here, visitors will encounter more cabins and inns than hotels set on expansive properties, and for most people who visit Portsmouth, that is exactly what they are looking for.
