Portland, Jamaica

Favourite Getaway Spot for Vacations and Retreats

Portland is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places in Jamaica. With its stunning blue waters, romantic coves, remote white sand beaches, breathtaking panoramic views and some of the best food on the island, Portland has long been a favourite getaway spot for everyone from celebrities to couples on their honeymoon and families on vacation. Portland with its rustic charm, waterfalls and river rafting is perfect for any nature lover.

Portland’s bigger beaches – Frenchman’s Cove, Winnifred Beach – are well-explored. But tracking down the off-the-beaten-path beaches, can be gratifying, providing you with serenity and exposure to the authentic Jamaica and its rustic charms. Visitors can watch the sunrise over Long Bay Beach, something so amazing; it’s worth getting up at 5:30 am. Turtle Beach, named for its view of a turtle shell shaped rock that sits just offshore is visually stunning. Portland is an ideal destination for anyone looking to fulfill their dream of getting married on the beach.

Well renowned as “The Jerk Capital of Jamaica” Boston Bay in Portland is not only a tantalizing treat for the taste buds, it also appeals to sun worshipers and vacationers seeking to venture into the realm of water sports. The golden sands and rough waters will tempt you to grab a surfboard and ride the waves, take a lesson in wind surfing, or venture further out to some good snorkeling sites. As the birthplace of Jerk food, Boston Bay is arguably the best place to sample authentic cuisines in Jamaica.

The very famous Blue Mountains are also located in Portland as is the world famous Blue Lagoon, which is believed to be the crater of an extinct volcano. The lagoon is an almost landlocked cove with approximately 180 feet of absolutely invigorating water. Swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving in the Blue Lagoon are absolute must do’s, not to mention kayaking to Monkey Island, just a stones throw away.

Somerset Falls are an ideal getaway for a memorable picnic in paradise. This beautiful secluded waterfall is hidden in the rainforest. The waterfall is refreshing where water cascades from above to form nature’s perfect jacuzzi. River Rafting on the Rio Grande River is also a famous activity for visitors.
