DESTINATION GUIDE – NEGRIL, JAMAICA

Negril has so much to offer visitors by seamlessly blending an idyllic setting and vibrant atmosphere which creates the perfect holiday experience. This picturesque setting is the perfect option for travellers looking to get away over the winter months.

History and culture

Holidaymakers started visiting the small fishing village when the main road to Negril was developed in 1959. From then on, Negril has transformed from being a laid-back beach resort to a lively party destination, especially during the American spring break. This said, Negril hasn’t lost its traditional island charm with its colourful streets and protected shorelines, where sea life is allowed to flourish in the mangroves and coral reefs.

Fantastic beaches
Negril is widely renowned for having some of the best beaches in the whole of Jamaica, in particular, the famous Seven Mile Beach where the sand shelves gently into the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. If you seek a bit of fun in the waters, there is the opportunity to try your hand at paragliding, canoeing, and diving to get the blood pumping. Relax on the beach enjoy a Red Stripe and take in everything that this beautiful setting offers.

Buzzing nightlife
After spending the day relaxing on the white powder beaches, the bars that line the coastline burst into life offering live music all year round. This makes it the perfect destination for groups to enjoy dancing on the beach until the early hours of the morning. Nearby is the lively Norman Manley Boulevard which has some of the finest restaurants in Jamaica, offering a selection of authentic Caribbean cuisines such as sizzling jerk chicken, roti’s or a local favourite curry goat which are rich with spice.

What you waiting for, book your fantastic holiday to Jamaica, you wont regret it.

    Great article, thanks for the tips!

    Indeed, as one of the most beautiful countries in the Caribbean, holidaying at Jamaica is one of the most captivating Caribbean experiences to be had. However, Jamaica also has one of the highest murder rates in the world. Although not targeted at tourists, it still pays to be careful of crime and tourist targeted scams here.

    Do be wary of the unofficial tour guides, aggressive street touts, renta-rasta and rentadreds, illegal drugs, pickpockets, snatch thefts, rogue money changers, rigged ATMs and many more!
