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. 

Beach Choices In The Area

You will discover several beaches to consider visiting in and around the area. Snorkeling is available at some of these beaches, for those who are so inclined. For detailed information about one particular beach you can click on the names of the ones you want to learn more about.

Negril's Seven Mile Beach

If you love to snorkel, a place providing that option is Bloody Bay. Lined with sprawling resorts and bowed palm trees, Bloody Bay features white to tan sands speckled with colorful shells, and clear, calm azure waters. Not far off shore is a shallow coral reef structure.

Another place that beach-goers can consider is Negril North Beach. Negril North is a relatively quiet stretch of sand in Negril. Visitors to this beach spend their time relaxing in the warm sand and swimming or snorkeling in the cool waters.

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.
