Things to see in Negril

Negril Attractions


Negril is a top destination for outdoor enthusiasts: you can kayak out into the protected wilderness of the Great Morass to see crocodiles and other wildlife in their natural habitat; go horse riding on the beach and through the jungle at Rhodes Hall Plantation; scuba dive or snorkel the beautiful coral reefs and caves along Negril's coast; or enjoy some extreme cliff-diving into the clear ocean water, a very popular activity with both locals and visitors. There are also excursions into the surrounding countryside, like a daytrip to Mayfield Falls, a natural water park where you can swim in the pools formed by 22 cascades.

There is a reason, however, that this adventurer's paradise is called 'the capital of casual'. The most popular attraction in Negril is the famous Seven Mile Beach, where turquoise water and white sands create a paradise for lazy hedonists as well as active thrill-seekers. The Reggae Marathon held annually in December sees runners taking over Seven Mile Beach, but most of the time it is the territory of happy, relaxed and half-naked tourists.

For lovely views of Negril's coastline, climb the lighthouse on West End Road; it was built in 1894 and is open to visitors every day.
