Negril is the most western town of the country with high cliffs and white-sand beaches edged by palm forests. The town is also a port. Away from the coast you will find long stretches of wetlands with exotic birds and crocodiles.


Like many other Jamaican towns, since the early 1700s, isolated Negril started as a shipping port with bad roads and large swamp lands. Legends says the pirate Calico Jack Rackham was captured near here after consuming vast quantities of rum. For years, this sleepy town stayed peaceful and undisturbed until it was discovered by the sixties “flower power” children.

Negril has developed with environmental issues in mind. Marine parks and several eco-friendly development projects sprung up. Now it is a huge resort town but still in a beautiful setting.


Booby Cay is where the rare blue-footed booby birds breed and portions of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea were filmed.

A great way to explore the mysterious Negril Great Morass is on a canoe trip which takes you deep into the protected natural area. The Royal Palm Reserve has exotic birds and crocodiles to see.
