THE BEST BEACHES TO VISIT IN PORTLAND

Port Antonio, and especially San San is close to the main attractions, like world-famous Blue Lagoon, Frenchman's Cove, San San Beach,  Boston Beach, Long Bay and Winnifred Beach.

This rural, unspoiled Jamaican village sits at the foot of the John Crow Mountains where the rain forest grows right to the sea in some places. The beach is one of the loveliest in all of Jamaica, a mile long with a handful of cottages. It offers a variety of swimming experiences from fairly heavy surf to gentle pools safe for young children. Long Bay is well named; its creamy beach sweeps for 1.5km, with strong breezes pushing the waves forcefully ashore. While the burly easterlies bring good surf (and an undertow makes it bad for swimming), they also leave Long Bay exposed to extreme weather.
