Negril, Jamaica Information

With its world-famous sunsets and laid-back vibe, Negril is more than just an enchanting town on Jamaica’s west coast — it’s a state of mind.

Although it might be Negril’s most famous beach, Seven Mile Beach is certainly not the only beach worth visiting in Negril. Bloody Bay Beach — or “the other Negril beach,” as it’s often called — is quite popular amongst the locals and is equally beautiful and relaxing.

The Negril Marine Park located at the Negril Environmental Protection Area is a favourite amongst all nature lovers, especially those in love with marine life. The park is divided into several recreational zones and provides a unique opportunity to view the local marine ecosystem. The park encompasses the coastline, mangroves, offshore marine environments and coral reefs.

The majestic Mayfield Falls await about an hour away in Westmoreland. With 21 natural pools and over 52 varieties of ferns, this off-the-beaten-path natural spa is one of Jamaica’s hidden gems. An experienced guide leads your 45-minute climb through mineral-infused waters whilst revealing various secrets of the falls.
True water lovers can’t miss YS Falls, located in nearby St. Elizabeth. Once used to supply logwood in the early 1800s, in 1992 the YS Estate opened its stunning seven-tiered cascading falls to the public. Visitors from around the world come to enjoy the wading pools fed by underground springs and swing into the waters.

Unique Finds
Before you leave Negril, you must pick up a few reminders of your stay and some trinkets for loved ones. Authentic, locally made arts and crafts are always viable options, and in Negril artsy items abound along the beach or street-side from craft vendors, or at the local open-air craft market in the middle of town. The Negril Craft Market features Jamaican goods, from wooden chess sets and hammocks to ital carvings.

There are many souvenir shops in Negril, but a good one-stop spot is the Time Square Shopping Mall. Local sauces, jellies, coffee and snacks can be purchased here.

Other shopping districts include Plaza de Negril, Sunshine Village Plaza and Coral Seas Plaza. For a fun day of shopping, dining and swimming, check out The Boardwalk Village on Seven Mile Beach.
