White sand, crystal clear water and lush vegetation is what sums up this gem of a Parish called Portland. Drum roll please because Round 5 of Island trekking finally took us to hands down,  my favorite Parish on the Island. If you're like me and hate overcrowded beaches and love to simply bask in nature, Portland is definitely the place for you. This beautiful parish is full of so many hidden gems; it has some of the best beaches on the Island and the most relaxing atmosphere. I doubled up on the adventure for this trek because I mean you can't just go to Portland and visit one area.

The Errol Flynn Marina was the first stop, the scenery here is beautiful and besides an array of boats it has a cozy little Bar and Grill and a small beach front nestle away next to the Port.

Now for the outfit; this top I got from Asos is quite versatile. Who doesn't love a piece of clothing that you can wear several ways and achieve  different looks? What I love about it is, it doubles as a top or a dress and can also work as a cover up. I wore it as a top this time around paired with this embroidery shorts I've had for the longest while and just haven't gotten around to wearing it.

Next stop was the San San beach, which was the pinnacle of the trek, the part where relaxation sets in. Spread your beach towel on the smooth white sand,  lay back and listen to the waves wash the shore, awwww pure serenity. Oh and then take a splash in that salt water. This orange  bikini I also got from Asos and I love the string details on the front of the top piece.

Another great thing about Portland for me is I find it to be more secluded and less touristy than in more popular spots like Montego Bay and Ochi Rios. It is one of the reasons why a lot of celebrities like Beyonce have stayed in Portland when they visit Jamaica. There is a lot to see in this Parish and who knows, I 'll probably include it in another Island Trek round. *Winks*
PS..There is a entry cost you will have to pay if you plan on taking a trip to this beach.
