Negril is a small town in the west of Jamaica, an hour and fifteen minutes from Montego Bay airport. It is also known as the "Pearl of the Caribbean" for its beautiful beaches and the lush tropical vegetation surrounding the area.
Negril offers beautiful beaches and the most hippie spot on the island, where the spirit of Bob Marley is felt in every corner. Beaches, music, sun...these are part of what makes Negril such a special place.
Enjoy the most spectacular sunsets in the world, relax or stroll along some of the beautiful white sandy beaches with their crystal clear waters, like Seven Mile Beach, experience the adrenaline from diving off of Negril's cliffs, dive or snorkel in a transparent sea full of colourful fish and coral in a thousand shapes and forms, learn about the ecosystem and wildlife of the typical tropical mangrove area in the Great Morass and, at nightfall, enjoy the Jamaican music and atmosphere on the beach.
