A view of Kingston Harbour from Palisadoes

Palisadoes (word apparently of Portuguese origin) is the thin tombolo of sand that serves as a natural protection for Kingston Harbour, Jamaica. Norman Manley International Airport and the historic town of Port Royal are both on Palisadoes.

The privateer Captain Morgan was buried in Palisadoes cemetery, which sank beneath the sea after the 1692 earthquake.[1]
