Negril is a beach-goer’s dream location with its Seven Mile Beach and utterly relaxed atmosphere. There’s simply no rush here and a Negril holiday will blow you away with its beautiful hotels, clear water and Caribbean sunshine.
When you’ve had your fill of the white sand beaches, choose a water sport to try your hand at, such as windsurfing, snorkelling or kayaking. With wonderfully warm water, swimming and snorkelling is a real pleasure here, so go and explore the brightly coloured fish and coral reef in the natural lagoon. It’s a great safe place for children and teenagers too.
Evenings are perfection in this Western region of Jamaica. The beaches face the setting sun so grab a cocktail and watch as the day turns into night. With reggae music, lively bars and the best of Jamaican food, each evening is an experience in the Jamaican way of life.
Negril is primarily known for its phenomenal beaches, and if you’re after a Caribbean beach holiday, it doesn’t get better than this. Thanks to Seven Mile Beach, there’s always plenty of space on the sand and the facilities here are excellent. Protected by an outer coral reef, the sea is calm, clear and in the mid-20s (°C) all year round, making it ideal for water sports and swimming.
Local laws mean that buildings here mustn’t be built any higher than the tallest palm trees, ensuring that this area’s natural, beautiful landscape has been preserved. With live music, endless restaurants and bars to explore and a friendly atmosphere, there’s plenty to entertain you day and night.
It’s a popular destination and many adventures, tours and sport treks are run from the town. Go trekking in the jungle, or ride a horse through the shallows.
With an average temperature of 27°C in July and 25°C in January, Negril is warm all year round with highs in the low 30s (°C).
