Sir Noel Coward's estate "Firefly," which sits 1000 feet above the coast, is well marked and easy to find on the road between Ocho Rios and Port Antonio.

The view from the estate, now a government-sponsored museum dedicated to the English author, is magnificent.

The land originally belonged to the pirate Henry Morgan. Coward lived here from the 1950s until his death in 1973.

You'll have 4 acres of grounds and gardens to walk at the top of the hill?no need to climb up the access road from the coast unless you want to.

Fireflies are supposed to gather regularly atop the hill at night, supplying the inspiration for the name. Open 10-5.
