Port Royal, Kingston

(4.3/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Explore the port that was once home to privateers and pirates from around the world at Port Royal. In colonial times, the port was used by English and Dutch privateers who were employed by their home countries to challenge the Spanish Empire. These privateers later turned to piracy after letters of marque stopped being issued. Today you can explore the port and old forts of the town, go fishing off the pier, and enter the slanted Giddy House--an amunitions bunker that's tilted after an earthquake in 1907. Plan to visit Port Royal and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Kingston attractions using our Kingston trip generator.
