Monkey Island is situated offshore from the folly ruins in Port Antonio. It is a small, uninhabited plot called “Pellew Island,” also called “Monkey Island”; a colony of imported monkeys inhabited the island at one point in its history. The stretch of water separating the island from the mainland is very shallow at low tide making it quite easy to walk across. On the island, you will find a well-shaded beach, a small walking trail, a diving platform and great views of the coast. It is a perfect spot for visitors can go snorkeling or kayaking.
