Kingston Harbour is the seventh largest natural harbour in the World. It is an almost landlocked sheet of water approximately 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) long by 3.2 kilometres (2.0 mi) wide. Most of it is deep enough to accommodate large ships, even close to shore. It is bordered to the north by the city of Kingston, the capital of Jamaica, to the west by Hunts Bay and the municipality of Portmore, and to the south and east by the Palisadoes spit.
The harbour is home to the Kingston Container Terminal, Jamaica's largest port. Other docks on Kingston Harbour are at the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica in downtown Kingston and at the Jamaica Flour Mills and the Caribbean Cement Company at Rockfort. Norman Manley International Airport, Jamaica's second largest, is also located in the outer harbor, on the Palisadoes spit. There is a fishing village at Rockfort and fishing docks at Harbour View and at Port Royal.
