Who remembers the Tom
Cruise move, Cocktail? Sure, it wasn't an Oscar winning performance,
but didn't we all dream about visiting that beautiful beach? Moreover,
the Beach Boys song featured in the movie had us all wondering:
"Is there really a place called, Kokomo"?
Well, we're pretty
sure we've found it, in Jamaica, and it's not one of the famous
beaches we all know of in Montego Bay, Ocho Rios or Negril. A
few hours past Ocho Rios, lies Port Antonio, a past playground
of royalty, movie stars, and millionaires. Surprised?
The land from the shore to the mountains has been declared a conservation
corridor, with restrictions on development and exploitation. The
Portland district, where Port Antonio lies, is the richest in
Jamaica in endemic species of plants. The fauna delights include
numerous hummingbirds and the world's second largest butterfly.
A far cry from the ritzy mega resorts, Port Antonio is "the
real Jamaica". Here you can immerse yourself in the true
beauty of the island and it's Jamaica roots.
From the beautiful
Blue Lagoon, to the secluded Frenchman's Cove Beach and the ruins
of Folly Mansion, Port Antonio is surely one of the most exotic
environments in the world. Come and enjoy, we've found "Kokomo"!
Just a mile from the closed beach where Tom Cruise once juggled
bottles in Cocktail, Winnifred Beach is one of the most appealing
beaches in all of Jamaica. Located in the Fairy Hill community,
Winnifred Beach is home to a delightful reef just offshore that's
not only perfect for snorkeling, but for its clear, calm, bright-blue
water justly popular with locals.
San San Beach:
One of the most exclusive beaches in Port Antonio. It's located
at the base of San San District, where many of the area's nicer
villas are located. The fine-sand beach hugs a cove next to Alligator
Head and overlooks Pellew Island, from where a protective reef
extends eastward to the mouth of the Blue Lagoon.
The Blue Lagoon:
The Blue Lagoon is a natural lagoon, situated roughly seven miles
east of Port Antonio. The deep lagoon was once thought to be bottomless
but divers have since determined it's depth to be around 180 feet.The
most striking feature about the Blue Lagoon is its mystical blue
color which changes throughout the day, depending on the angle
of the sun. A day spent by the Blue Lagoon, you can see the hue
change from turquoise to sapphire to deep blue. When you go swimming
in the blue lagoon, you'll be massaged by streams of warm water
from the Caribbean Sea and refreshing jets of icy fresh water
from the underground streams which feed the lagoon. The
site was originally called The Blue Hole. However, following the
success of the Brooke Shields film "The Blue Lagoon"
which was filmed here, the site was re-named "The Blue Lagoon".
Blue Lagoon is
closed to the general public but the boatmen who are stationed
by the fence can take you on boat rides around to the lagoon,
some may even open the fence to let you take a look.
Reach Falls Jamaica is one of the most amazing natural waterfalls
that the island has to offer. It is peacefully situated amongst
exotic virgin rain forest. Located on the eastern end of Jamaica
in Portland, its approximately an hour and a half drive
from Ocho Rios, Jamaica. This is truly beautiful setting. The
water is cool, refreshing, and crystal clear. Vines hang and natural
bamboo stand throughout the falls. You will see species of plants
here that you wont see anywhere else in the world. The scenic
hike and swim up the river is sheer beauty. If
you go beneath the waterfalls you will see hidden holes that are
naturally carved out by the water. Youll even find a secret
cave behind one of the falls that you can step in, then climb
out just above the cascade. Reach
Falls is somewhat remote so not many tourists know about it. Dont
be surprised if you have the place all to yourself when you go.
There is an admission to enter Reach Falls, but it does include
a short tour.
Age 4-12: $5 US
Over age 12:
Children 3 and
under are FREE
Note: Reach Falls
is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
to 4:30pm. Open most holidays.
