Port Royal was a major Caribbean port and, most famously, a central site for pirate activity. Today, much of the town is focused on tourist appeal and historical venues, most of them featuring pirates. An earthquake in 1692 destroyed much of the old city, and ruins remain visible sunken underwater.
