Navy Island was at one time owned by Errol Flynn, the actor who sailed into Port Antonio, fell in love with the city and ended up buying Navy Island. It is about a half-mile from the Errol Flynn Marina.

There used to be a hotel on the island but it has ceased operation and until recently, the city's coast guard unit used to hold parties on the beach but that has also stopped. Now the island is densely populated only by lush trees. A group of investors want to build a resort on the property but are meeting with stiff opposition from some locals.

Wear better shoes than flip flops. There are rough trails and they are continuously overrun with jungle. Not sure if there are actual caretakers to the property once owned by the later actor Errol Flynn. Portions of a ruined resort, as well as Flynn's home/pool are still visible and accessible, but beware of dangers due to rotting wood, hornets nest...A "rasta" makes his home somewhere on the island, so don't be surprised if he emerges from the vines. He may try to sell you something or trade.

I enjoyed trekking to the beach on the far side...It was beautiful. I also enjoyed the beautiful views of the rest of Port Antonio from there.
