Gorgeous wildlife and natural habitat with beautiful quiet beaches for swimming, you have to take a boat across from the Marina to visit but it's worth it!

I made tour with the people from Germaican Hostel. It was great to see the resort from Errol Flynn. Nice Nature, big palm trees, old ruins.

Navy Island was once a beautifully landscaped island with a hotel and a number of small bungalows for rent. The vegetation has won the contest, and the lush plants and trees have absorbed much of the introduced species into the local biosphere. A fun place to walk around and explore, with a couple of small beaches on the north side,... More

It is about a half-mile from the Errol Flynn Marina. There used to be a hotel on the island but it has ceased operation and until recently, the city's coast guard... More

Wear better shoes than flip flops. There are rough trails and they are continuously overrun with jungle. Not sure if there are actual caretakers to the property once owned by the later actor Errol Flynn. Portions of a ruined resort, as well as Flynn's home/pool are still visible and accessible, but beware of dangers due to rotting wood, hornets nest...A... More

I enjoyed trekking to the beach on the far side...It was beautiful. I also enjoyed the beautiful views of the rest of Port Antonio from there.
