Negril, on Jamaica’s western coast, has the tranquil tropical beauty that first drew visitors in the 1960s. It’s more laid-back than Montego Bay and Ocho Rios, yet it has plenty of natural features both inland and along the shore.

Negril Beach is a popular tourist destination. This gorgeous expanse of soft, white sand and turquoise sea, also known as Seven Mile Beach, is one of the nicest beaches in the Caribbean and fronts many of Negril’s hotels and resorts.

Exploring the coral reefs, bathing in therapeutic mineral springs and rain forest waterfalls, hand-feeding hummingbirds, and zipping through the jungle canopy on ziplines are just a few of the great things to do in Negril.

1. Beach

Negril Beach, which spans from Bloody Bay in the north to Long Bay and the Negril Cliffs in the south, is one of Jamaica’s most beautiful lengths of beach. This beautiful expanse of fine sand and blue sea is sometimes known as Seven Mile Beach, despite the fact that it is just four miles long. It is ideal for strolling, swimming, and sunbathing.

There are plenty of water activities available, as well as some relentless hawkers hawking trinkets along the beach. A number of beach sections are also designated as clothing-optional.

The popular Sandals Negril, Royalton Negril, and Beaches Negril Resort & Spa are among the restaurants and hotels that view the beach, although the majority are tucked away between sea grapes and coconut palms.

2. The Negril Cliffs

The magnificent Negril Cliffs, which rise above the sea south of Negril Beach, were utilised as a setting for the James Bond thriller Thunderball.

These limestone outcrops reach a height of 12 metres at their tallest point, and they’re a favourite site for both locals and tourists to dive into the calm water below. This is one of the most exciting free things to do if you’re seeking for an adrenaline rush.

Do you want something a little more relaxing? Go to Rick’s Café, which is well-known. It’s a wonderful spot to unwind at sunset and watch all the cliff-diving action because it’s perched high above the water.

Atop the cliffs here, several of Negril’s most luxury resorts, including The Caves, command stunning ocean vistas.

3. Mayfield Falls

Mayfield Falls are about an hour’s drive from Negril, past papaya orchards and plantations, and are smaller, less touristy, and wonderfully less congested than Dunn’s River Falls.


These spring-fed cascades drop into more than 20 pools, providing peaceful locations to soak while listening to the rushing water. This is one of the most romantic sites in Negril, Jamaica, for couples. The journey to the falls via the jungle is difficult and rugged, but that’s all part of the fun.

You can take a cab to the trailhead and then hire a guide to accompany you on the hour-long climb to the falls, pointing out unusual birds, butterflies, and plants along the way. Another alternative is to become a member of a Mayfield Falls Nature Club.

4. Bloody Bay

Bloody Bay, located just north of Seven Mile Beach, is a tad quieter than its famed cousin. The sun is shaded by palms and sea grape plants, and the water is usually quiet and clear.

Rustic beach shacks provide BBQ seafood if you become hungry. You might be able to pick up a few keepsakes as well. However, if you’d rather just relax, sun loungers are provided along the shore.

The beach is lined with restaurants and hotels, including the huge resort Hotel Riu Negril, but it is normally less busy than Seven Mile Beach, making for a more relaxing experience. From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., lifeguards are on duty.

5. Barney’s Flower & Hummingbird Garden Jamaica

Barney’s Flower & Hummingbird Garden is a little treasure trove of birdlife tucked away in tropical vegetation, just a five-minute drive from Rick’s Cafe.

In this quarter-acre garden, hummingbirds hover over hibiscus, bougainvillaea, ginger, and other tropical plants. You will be given a bottle of sugar water to feed these winged beauties when you arrive, allowing you to have up-close interactions and wonderful photo possibilities.

Other small animals such as butterflies, bees, and lizards frequent the garden, and if you’re lucky, you might even see the doctor bird, also known as the swallow-tailed hummingbird, which is Jamaica’s national bird.


Keep in mind that hummingbird activity is influenced by the weather and other factors.

Hylton Avenue in Negril is the address.
