Jamaica's Mangroves


Beautiful mangroves in Jamaica


Amongst the natural wonders of the Caribbean island of Jamaica are its mangroves, which are found along long stretches of its coast. These marshy saltwater wetlands provide breeding grounds for many species of fish, and in general serve to protect the shoreline from erosion.  Their ecological importance has led to a number of actions on the part of the government to protect these treasured areas.  Check out the Jamaican mangroves from above in this drone video by colazsmith.

AnDrone Me...

Tensing Pen is a famous resort in Jamaica. It's located in Negril, the main beach community on the western side of the island.  Negril was somewhat slower to develop as a Jamaican destination; its development began when a modern road was built to Montego Bay (to its northeast) in the 1950's.  As seen in this drone video by AnDroneMeda One, Tensing Pen was built in the early 1970's and has been renovated several times since; it's located on a small peninsula just south of the now-famed Seven Mile Beach.
