Portland Resort Board
This is the home of jerk and scintillating sceneries, where the rainforest meets the smiles of a laid back and easy going people and the sea…“naturally”. Originally a shipping port where the “Tally man” would tally the green gold (bananas), it was the cradle of tourism in Jamaica. While relaxation bids you welcome in this quaint seaside resort, there are many adventurous options to pursue. Whether it’s rafting on the Rio Grande, sailing, hiking the Blue Mountains, and sightseeing or just checking out a waterfall, you’re in for a treat. There are several waterfalls even one named after national heroine Nanny of the Maroons.
The Blue lagoon, beautiful beaches, Errol Flynn Marina for those who like to go fishing or sailing are just additional options for the young and young at heart. In October each year, the International Marlin Tournament which is the oldest competition of its kind in the Caribbean gets its capital Port Antonio.
Accommodations are an eclectic mix from 19thcentury lodges to more modern day offerings. If you’re in the business of making sweet music Gee Jam is a perfect hideaway. That’s Port Antonio… “Naturally”.
The Chairman of the resort board is Lawrence Robertson. Meetings are held every 4th Wednesday.
