Welcome to Port Royal
There are few hints of the town’s former glory, though landmarks such as Fort Charles give a tantalizing glimpse. Restaurants serving the freshest fish in the Kingston area, and doubling as party spots after hours, along with the white-sand beach of Lime Cay make this one of the best-loved spots near Kingston.
Port Royal sits at the end of a narrow 16km-long spit called the Palisadoes that forms a natural breakwater protecting Kingston Harbour. The spit earned its name for the defensive palisade that was built across the spit to defend Port Royal from a land-based attack. The Palisadoes is fringed on its harbor side by mangroves that shelter crocodiles and colonies of pelicans and frigate birds.
