Whether it is baking in the sun, lazing under a coconut tree or simply taking a stroll, the beach is obviously a must see. As each part of the beach usually "belongs" to the adjacent restaurant/hotel or bar, check if you can sit on one of their sun loungers. As long as the area is not reserved for hotel guests it is normally fine as long as you show your gratitude by buying a drink or having a bite to eat.
The cliffs are wonderful if you fancy a day away from the beach and are recommended for anyone who wants to snorkel as the sea life around the rocks are a must see. Once again hotels have claimed the cliffs as the views are spectacular. The same principles apply as a visit to the beach. It is always best too if you check in at the front desk as a day visitor if you wish to visit one the hotels and use their amenities for a day.
Some of the best that you are ever likely to see. The sun goes down at around 18:30 each evening and is a great way to wind down admiring the heavenly colors the setting sun displays among the clouds in the sky.
This is the famous spot for sunsets. Located in the cliffs you can watch the cliff divers perform aerial acrobatics, listen to some live Reggae, have a meal and/or a couple of drinks while the sun gently disappears in the horizon. It was established in 1974 and is still one of the most popular places to visit in Negril.
The market is located in the centre of the town and is full of local crafts comprising of woodcarvings, jewellery and clothing. Although these crafts can be found everywhere in Negril you may want to visit the market so that you can bargain and weigh up the choices offered.
The Negril Point Lighthouse
This is on the far end of West End Road and is one of the six operating lighthouses on the island.
This is about a two-hour drive North from Negril (although only about 80 km as the roads are being repaired). Montego bay offers beaches and shopping and is home to one of the International airports of Jamaica.
This is also one of Jamaica's hotspots for tourists and is a popular stop over for Cruise Liners. Located East of Montego bay and is about a four-hour drive from Negril and about a two hour drive from Kingston. Ocho Rios is also home to the famous Dunn's River Waterfalls that can be reached by a 600-foot climb where you can see the water cascading straight into the sea.
Approximately two hours away in the town of St Elizabeth (which was the first town in Jamaica to have electricity) you can go on a safari down the Black River. The safari lasts an hour and you are treated to a boat ride through the mangroves and of course crocodiles! No swimming of course.
After your safari drive for another 30 minutes or so and visit the YS falls. You are taken on a tractor through a forest where the grounds are immaculate and is the perfect setting for a picnic. (Drinks can be bought near the falls but you may prefer to take a picnic basket along) The falls are comprised of eight tiers and are magnificent. Be sure to take your swimming costume so that you can take a dip in the water.
Kingston and the Blue Mountains
Kingston is the capital of Jamaica and home to the museum of the legendary Bob Marley. It is also not far from the Blue Mountains where the famous coffee beans are grown. It will take about five hours to reach Kingston and another hour or two more to reach the Blue Mountains from Negril. It is recommended that you join a tour group to ensure that you are safe and that you see what you have set out to see.
