Initially promoted on tourist brochures as “seven miles of only you and the sea” the once quiet and private location is now only a distant, yet happy memory. You will still see topless sunbathers lounging half submerged in the sea and the ever present smell of ganja is a natural part of the ambiance it is however now crowded with restaurants, bars and hot night spots. The beach however is still on of the most beautiful and you can enjoy the clear waters, swaying palm leaves and nearby coral reefs, it is however no longer a refuge of solitude.
6. Negril Hills
Rising inland of Negril’s West End are the Negril Hills which are a range of beautiful, low-lying hills. The raised upland is all limestone which is wildly smothered by brush. The single road which offers access from Negril to the adjoining towns is sprinkled with tiny hamlets. This is a tour that is best enjoyed and taken in by bike.

The beaches are beautiful, the food is to die for, the drinks are aplenty, the music is moving and the people are so friendly. This is definitely a colorful, beautiful and fun location which you will never tire of spending time in.
