There are very few accessible destinations on this planet of ours (within the reach of the pocket of the average traveller) that can say that they have been long associated with the rich and famous over the past few decades, but Port Antonio in Jamaica, a majestic little beach town that sits towards the north-east of the glorious island of Jamaica, most certainly can. Hollywood movie stars and even members of royal families have either chosen to visit this beautiful part of the Caribbean during relaxing holidays or have decided to call the area their new home by buying or renting a holiday home here.
The truth of the matter is that there is a real ‘Je ne sais quoi’ about Port Antonio that draws elite travellers from all corners of the world, be it discerning businessmen, influential personalities, political figures, members of royalty or artists. This is easily one of the most pristine resorts in the whole of Jamaica and the area has been recognised countless of times as being a very affluent and attractive hotspot for high end travellers in search of uninterrupted beauty and world class comforts.
Those looking for the simple luxuries in life coupled with amazing scenery and untouched nature will fall in love with the area. Many of the landscapes here resemble postcard-perfect snaps and seem taken out of a Hollywood film. Port Antonio is also able to boast an excellent choice in the way of luxury holiday accommodation and it is also surrounded by some of the most interesting and unique tourist attractions.
A selection of the most popular attractions in this area includes the 200-feet-deep Blue Lagoon which has derived this name due to the sheer depth of the water, which many believe to be bottomless and offers an amazing swimming experience. It’s so beautiful in fact that it was the setting for the famous Blue Lagoon film in which Brooke Shields starred as a 15-year-old aspiring actress. The film not only shot her to immediate fame it also generated a lot of worldwide interest on the paradisaical setting in which its scenes were shot. If you never swam any where else on your Jamaica holidays, you should definitely ensure that you do so here in Blue Lagoon. You should also keep French man Cov eBeach, De Montevin Lodge, Boston Bay, Rio Grande, Folly mansion and Reach Falls well and truly on your sightseeing radar whilst in the area.
If there is even a small part of you that loves to follow the celebrity culture and embrace it for yourself for a while, you are going to absolutely adore spending your Jamaica holidays in Port Antonio. Before you come to the resort, however, hire the film ‘Cocktail’ or ‘Blue Lagoon’ from your local DVD rental store. These blockbuster movies were filmed in this exact area; so, you can see what you can look forward to for yourself and then get on with booking your holiday straight after.
