THE BEST BEACHES TO VISIT IN PORTLAND

Port Antonio, and especially San San is close to the main visitor attractions,
like world-famous Blue Lagoon, Frenchman's Cove, San San Beach,

  • Blue Lagoon Open or Close

    With glistening, turquoise blue waters surrounded by lush greenery, Blue Lagoon is a vision of beauty.

    The water in Blue Lagoon is a mix of fresh water and salt water, as the lagoon is open to the sea and fed by freshwater springs.

    If you decide to take a dip in the lagoon, you’ll notice the alternating temperatures (the warmth of the Caribbean Sea and the icy cold waters of the underground streams), which is quite an experience...

  • Frenchman's Cove Open or Close
