Port-Antonio is the capital of Portland.It was Jamaica’s main banana port. Melancholic Port Antonio still has the rakish air and tropical lassitude of a maritime harbor but over the last two years the Port Authority build a completely new five-star yacht marina with a walking promenade and with restaurants and shops and here you find also Lady G’ Diver were you can do Scuba diving & Padi.

In the fifties and sixties many great American artists came here for holidays. One of them was Errol Flynn, who’s family once owned Navy Island. Port-Antonio has supermarkets, a completely new craft market with craft shops, a post office, a hospital, telecommunications etc. Banks are open from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. and on Fridays until 4 p.m., closed on Saturdays and Sundays. ATM’s are also available. Folly is an old ruin dating from 1905. Once it was a two story, 70m long mansion boasting sixty rooms; an American millionaire’s humble residence. Folly now acts as popular backdrop for fashion photo shoots.
