Did you know that the Jack’s Bay Beach area may have played an illustrious part in Jamaican history? Whilst it is commonly accepted that Christopher Columbus first made landfall at St Ann’s Bay further up the coast in 1494, the Jamaica Historical Society summised that from analyzing eye witness accounts and diary entries from people who accompanied Columbus on his famous voyage, there is a strong argument he first made landfall at Annotto Bay on the north east coast of Jamaica, very close to Green Castle and Jack’s Bay. It is suggested that upon approaching the area, Columbus was repelled by Arawak Indians, therefore he moved further up the coast to St Ann’s Bay.
