Other Beaches

If the active mood at Negril North Beach is what you're looking for, think about also visiting Green Island East Beach, another destination with a good amount of excitement. You'll find it nine miles to the northeast. However, if you're looking to enjoy a quieter scene, Seven Mile Beach is a beach which doesn't host as many visitors. You'll find it not far off the beach at all.

You might also want to visit Bloody Bay, which is located not a great distance away, meaning a short cab ride will get you here pretty easily.

Maybe Negril North Beach is a perfect spot for you to kick back, and at the same time perhaps not the the ideal fit; in which case there are other beaches (and other outdoor attractions) worth trying.
