The Morant Point Lighthouse stands as a small relic of Jamaican history. In 1841 the first wave of Kru men from Africa—the first free Black men to migrate to Jamaica—had it erected. It is the oldest lighthouse on the island and the first cast iron lighthouse to be built in the Western Hemisphere.
The site around Morant Point is a pleasant point for a picnic and some goat-watching. The drive to East End Beach itself is dotted with sugar canes, the fields dotted with cows, goats and pelicans.
