An almost uninterrupted five miles of golden sand (it is called Seven Miles Beach, but that includes Bloody bay to the north). Shoulder to shoulder bars, hotels with some watersports concessionaires to keep you busy. Negril beach is the liveliest in Jamaica.

Comments, reviews and questions by other travellers

Check out Rick's Cafe while you're here. It's a definite tourist attraction tempting guests to cliff jump into "who knows how deep it is?" water. Locals will do death defying leaps from trees or structures on top of the cliffs for tips, applause, and attention. Good place for the adrenaline junkies.

Negril Beach

Despite the rolling expanse of hotels and bars across Negril Beach, most of Negril rewmains undeveloped. A popular Jamaican vacation spot, the beach offers a wide range of activities such as surfing, snorkeling, fishing, and in some areas, nudity.

If all the buzz of the beach is making you lust for a more secluded atmosphere, Negril also has several sequestered areas: Long Bay Beach Park to the north of Negril Beach is the least crowded and has rows of picnic benches for a peaceful meal in the Caribbean.
