Port Royal was once known as the “wickedest City on Earth” and is one of the most interesting historical sites in Jamaica. Due to its location in the Caribbean, the town was home to pirates and buccaneers, including Sir Henry Morgan, or Blackbeard. Pirates and privateers sailed from Port Royal to plunder ships traveling on the Spanish Main. An earthquake in 1692 destroyed much of the town, and many people died in the quake and from injuries and disease occurring afterwards. A visit to the Fort Charles Maritime Museum in the courtyard of the old British naval headquarters is a must. Exhibits there include a scale model of the fort, ship models, and various items from the town’s infamous past.
