The Insider's Guide to Buying Property in Portland
Portland: Pristine Paradise
Located on the northeastern tip of Jamaica, Portland parish is one of the most rural, least developed and unspoiled areas in the country. With its breathtaking mountain backdrop, white sand beaches, and cascading waterfalls, Portland offers some of the most awe-inspiring natural scenery in the Caribbean. From the famous Blue Lagoon’s azure waters to towering rainforest-covered peaks, Portland’s landscapes look like a painting come to life.
Charming Coastal Settlements
Dotting the coastline are charming small towns and villages that exude a relaxed, friendly vibe. In Port Antonio, the parish’s capital, you can wander the colorful streets, shop at the bustling market, or relax at the marina with its bobbing boats. Continuing east takes you to quiet settlements such as Manchioneal that seem blissfully untouched by time.
From world-class surfing at Boston Bay to river rafting along the Rio Grande, Portland also offers adventures to suit every thrill-seeker. Tackle raging rapids, then replenish with jerk chicken in Boston, the birthplace of this signature Jamaican dish.
After a day of adventures, relax in style at one of Portland’s famous luxury hotels such as Geejam and Trident. Enjoy farm-to-table cuisine, infinity pools, attentive service and mesmerizing views.
The Perfect Haven
With its wealth of natural beauty, laidback vibe, and high-end amenities, Portland provides the ultimate Caribbean haven. Property buyers will find exclusive homes to enjoy this idyllic lifestyle or large parcels of land for residential or resort development. Large parcels of fertile land suitable for agricultural use are also available, leveraging Portland’s status as a renowned producer of coffee, mangoes, ackee and other export crops. For those seeking paradise, Portland’s rare blend of outstanding natural beauty, outdoor adventure, and understated luxury make it a real Jamaican gem.
