This exclusive city is located to the Northeast of Kingston just about 60 miles away. It is also known for its privacy and tranquillity which makes it a well-kept secret. Celebrities like Katy Perry and Solange even came on the Island and visited this area and nobody knew until they left and it was a headline in the newspaper.
