#DryLandTouristChronicles #Throwback: The Old Capital

#DryLandTouristChronicles: A Day on the Boardwalk [Beach]

My little brother recently came home for Christmas break & one of his few request was to go to the beach. One Sunday evening myself & 2 of my friends honored that request & took him to Boardwalk Beach.

I am not a fan of swimming at the beaches in Hellshire because there is usually too much seaweed for my liking. I usually got to Ocho Rios, Portland or St. James for a beach day but whenever I want good seafood I visit Hellshire Beach (Half Moon Bay), whenever I want to lyme I go to Fort Clarence & whenever I want to relax without a long drive I usually head to Boardwalk Beach.


It is a quaint little spot with thatch gazebos & lots of space for beach games. There is also a bar/restaurant & a DJ. It is also a nice spot for a little “Night Beach” lyme.

It is an affordable spot with an entry fee of only  $200 JMD.

Jamaica is an amazing country with numerous historical & natural beauties to explore. I have had the pleasure of visiting a few of these places & decided to share them with you my lovely readers.

The Morant Bay Lighthouse, St. Thomas

Morant Point Lighthouse, St. Thomas

The Morant Point Lighthouse built in 1841 is listed by the Jamaica National Heritage Trust as a National Monument. It is the oldest lighthouse in the island. Built of cast iron tube, cast in London it is 100 feet long with a diameter of 5 feet at the base, and 3 feet at the cap. It is located in the most easterly point of the Island. The labour used in erecting the Lighthouse was supplied by kru-men from Africa. They were among the free Africans who were brought to Jamaica.
