Fort Charlotte

Fort Charlotte was built in 1746 to protect Jamaica's northwest from naval attacks. It was given the name "Fort Charlotte" in honor of King George III's marriage to queen Charlotte and enjoyed a reputation of being one of the best-kept forts in Jamaica.

Do & See

The tiny scenic town of Lucea is primarily a beach resort destination, with beach activities and water sports topping the list of things on most visitors' to-do lists. Try windsurfing, snorkeling or kite-surfing, or opt for a rather unique excursion where one gets to dash directly through the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean while on horseback (multiple local agencies offer guided tours). Elsewhere on the island stunning beaches, cascade waterfalls and multiple active pursuits await.
