It was the Caribbean party island of choice for the likes of Errol Flynn and his friends, Errol liked it so much here in Port Antonio he decided to buy a house here.
“My dream of happiness: A quiet spot by the Jamaican seashore looking out at the activity in the ocean, hearing the wind sob with the beauty and the tragedy of everything. Looking out over nine miles of ocean, hearing some happy laughter near-by. Sitting under an almond tree, with the leaf spread over me like an umbrella.” Errol Flynn
