Rockfort Mineral Baths

Health & Fitness in Kingston

Providing respite from the urban environment, these baths on the outskirts of Kingston, on the road to the airport, are fed by a cold spring that made its first appearance following the earthquake of 1907. There’s a large public pool and 11 private pools of varying sizes, all with whirlpools and wheelchair access. The slightly saline and radioactive water is said to have therapeutic properties.

One hour is the maximum allowed in a bath. There’s a cafeteria and juice bar, plus changing rooms and lockers. Massage (J$2963 per hour) is offered.

Adjacent to the baths is Fort Rock, an English fort with rusty cannons. It was built in 1694 amid rumors of an imminent invasion by the French.

To get here, take bus 99, 98 or 97 from Parade (J$100).
