“Stretching from Bloody Bay in the north to Long Bay and the Negril Cliffs in the south, Negril Beach, is one of Jamaica’s finest stretches of shoreline. Also known as Seven Mile Beach, this idyllic stretch of soft sand and turquoise sea is great for strolling, swimming, and sunbathing. Hotels and restaurants line the shore tucked behind coconut palms and several areas are designated as clothing optional. Visitors will find plenty of watersports on offer as well as many hawkers wandering the beach selling souvenirs.” – Karen Hastings
