Angela A's City Tips

  • Negril is famous for its fantastic sunsets!
  • The daily temperature in Negril averages above 25 degrees, with cooler evenings. The breeze usually provides a nice refreshing factor.
  • The official currency of Negril is the Jamaican dollar. Some tourist areas may accept the U.S. dollar, but you should never rely on this.

    Angela A Says:

    Set your mind, body, and soul up for the best day ever with a morning Liquid Yoga class. This is a unique yoga experience on a stand-up paddle board — so also a great way to start exploring the waters around Negril — and is perfect for both beginners and advanced practitioners.

    Angela A Says:

    Seven Mile Beach is one of Jamaica's most famous attractions, drawing hordes of visitors annually to its soft, white sand. Don't expect just 'another day at the beach' here, as plenty of water sports, restaurants, and entertainment are offered all along this long stretch to help you while away the hours.

    Tips

    • Be sure to apply plenty of sunscreen. The sun's rays are much stronger here than they are in non-tropical locations.

    Pilot's Cotton Tree Bar is one of the most celebrated bars in all of Negril. Located right off Seven Mile Beach, they offer a great happy hour, and plenty of other specials to make visitors return every time they are in Negril! The perfect late-afternoon treat, after a day on the sand.

    Angela A Says:

    For beach lovers who prefer a little more peace and quiet, Booby Cay Island is located right off the coast of Negril, just a short boat ride away. The crowds of Seven Mile Beach aren't present here, nor are the large resorts or walking vendors. This makes for a peaceful, fun retreat to laze the day away at.

    A good alternative to a whole day at the beach, the Negril Cliffs are beautiful 40 foot-tall coral formations that provide visitors with an adrenaline-fuelled jump-off point into the warm waters below. If this seems like a bit much, you can simply swim around the base of the cliffs instead.

    Another interesting sight on the tourist trail, the Negril Lighthouse is 20 meters tall, and climbing its 103 steps to the top rewards visitors with panoramic views. Having lit up the most westerly point of Jamaica since 1894, this is also historically interesting, being one of the earliest concrete lighthouses.

From water trampolines to a Tiki Bar — sometimes a few extra dollars are worth the over-all experience!
