Beaches in Negril

 

Negril's beachscape is unique thanks to the rugged cliffs that back the shores, leading into clean, white sands and dramatically blue waters.  These beaches are some of the most popular on the island, and often noted as the best. 

The Area's Beaches

You'll find several beaches to visit in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of these beaches, for vacationers who enjoy the underwater scene. You can click on the name of each beach to get additional information about that beach.

Negril's Seven Mile Beach

A location where you may find people snorkeling is Bloody Bay. Bloody Bay can be found just off Norman Manely Boulevard near the Negril Aerodome. Turn onto the side road at Breezes Grand Resort and Spa, and follow it right to the sand.

A second alternative for beach-goers to consider is Negril North Beach. Negril North is a short stretch of tan sand backed by West End Road, and lined with some greenery and several buildings. The water is a deep aquamarine, closer to green than blue, and to the west is a pier that juts out into the sea.

Green Island East Beach: While not completely isolated, its definitely not a developed and pristine beach. If you walk to the eastern cape of the bay, you'll find a sandbar.

The following table provides you with some details concerning the beaches available in and around the area.
