Things to do in  Negril

Welcome to Negril

Negril entices visitors with its stunning Seven Mile Beach, which actually only stretches across 4 miles of Jamaica’s westernmost shores. (But it’s gorgeous, so we’ll forgive the misnomer.) Guided half- and full-day tours let you experience the island’s tropics by foot, horseback, cruise, ATV, and zipline, with something for every level of adventurer. Tour the West End area of Negril’s steep cliffs to observe the dramatic, crashing turquoise waves and fiery Caribbean sunset. Take a food tour of Negril to get a taste of the region’s freshly caught fish, famous jerk chicken, and the Jamaican patty (a pastry filled with seasoned beef). Cruise the coast on a daytime tour from Rick’s Café, and sail on a luxury catamaran with an experienced crew, then snorkel among live coral reefs and schools of tropical fish as reggae music plays on board. Water sports’ lovers will want to book a jungle river tube tour to get on top of the crashing waters, or an ATV tour to ride through Sandy Bay, past farming villages and citrus groves. Add on a traditional Jamaican lunch to complete your day. Day trips from Negril lead you to dramatic YS Falls for swimming. Alternatively, grab a seat on a pontoon boat on the Black River; join a trek up Dunn’s River Falls; or tour Nine Mile, Bob Marley’s childhood home.
