      • Port Royal
        This is the place where many pirate stories of the Caribbean play, the place once called the “Most wicked city on Earth“ and “Sodom of the New World“. Jamaica once was the most important British colony in the Caribbean and Port Royal was its capital. Founded in 1518 by the Spanish at the entry of a natural harbour, it became the largest city in the Caribbean. After Jamaica was conquered by the British in 1655, it flourished as a trade town and pirate heaven until 1692. In that year, an earthquake hit Jamaica and more than half of the city sank into the harbour. Although the city was not given up, it lost its role of importance and title of capital to the other large settlement at the natural harbour: Kingston.

        As in much of Jamaica, not many buildings from the colonial area are preserved. This goes especially for a town which has been destroyed twice by an earthquake (the other was in 1907). Most of the sights are located on the site of Fort Charles which was one of four such forts. The former goal house as well as the old naval hospital are two examples for old buildings still standing. Both are unfortunately in a sorry state. The church is the only well-preserved historic building outside of Fort Charles. However, it is hoped that there will be enough funds collected in the future for archaeological researches as most of the sunken city is just a couple of meters away and only a couple of meters down in the water. Also, the harbour is full of sunken 17th and 18th century ships.

        Port Royal is well connected by bus to Kingston and the airport and is therefore a popular day trip destination for those in Kingston. Many visitors also opt for a boat trip to the nearby island of Lime Cay with its white sand beach.

        • Catch it before it disappears
          Whenever I go to Hellshire Beach I’m never disappointed, the fish meal is always scrumptious. The Escovitch Fish is my favourite. It’s drizzled with a mix of vinegar and pimento seeds and topped with slices of carrot, onions, and scotch bonnet pepper. Escovitch Fish with sides of bammy and festival is definitely a great choice.

          If you’ve never had Escovitch Fish, you’re really missing out on something. Although it’s my usual choice when I go to Hellshire, you can also have steamed fished with okras, carrots, and crackers, which is another Jamaican favorite.

          Hellshire Beach is located near the city of Portmore in the parish of Saint Catherine, in the south eastern part of Jamaica. It takes 30-40 minutes to drive from the capital city of Kingston to Hellshire, and this makes it a ‘go-to’ spot for those in Kingston looking for a nice ‘chill spot’ that’s not too far from home.

          Hellshire is one of those places that I’ve been going to since childhood, so I’ve spent many happy times there. It’s special not only because of the food, but the Hellshire hills in the background also makes it a picturesque stop.

          While the food at Hellshire is as delicious as ever, the once wide expanse of white sandy beach has been sorely eroded over the years. The shoreline is a lot closer to the thatch roof ‘restaurants’ these days, and while it’s nice to enjoy the waves crashing against the rocks while you eat, it’s obvious that the entire area is under serious threat, and with it the Hellshire tradition.

          Nevertheless, many people still enjoy sun-bathing in the sometimes choppy waters, but I hope that that something will be done soon to stem the erosion that has eclipsed much of the once beautiful Hellshire beach.
