Angela A's City Tips

  • If you rent a car, remember that you will drive on the left side of the road, and that the roads are often narrow and winding. You must be 25 years old to rent a car.
  • There are several options for getting around in Negril. Most visitors use a taxi, but there are also city buses. Just be sure to allow ample time for reaching your destination.
  • The currency used in Negril is the Jamaican Dollar, so be sure to convert money at the airport, your hotel, or a currency exchange outlet.

    Angela A Says:

    Seven Mile Beach is the most well known beach in all of Jamaica. As its name implies, the soft, white sand stretches for miles. It is also well developed, with resorts, restaurants, nightclubs, and shopping.

    The Negril Cliffs make for a thrilling, romantic adventure! Visitors may jump off 40-foot high cliffs and into the warm waters below. Those not so adventurous can still swim around the base of the cliffs, enjoying the scenery.

    Booby Cay Island is just off the coast of the beaches of Negril, a quick boat or ferry ride away. This is the place to go for peace and quiet, to escape the crowds of Negril's most popular beaches and have some alone time.
