Negril, Jamaica Travel Guide Last Updated: Jan 2022

Taking up most of the western shore of Jamaica, Negril is a large resort area that still feels mostly undeveloped compared to its neighbor, Montego Bay. Unlike Montego Bay, the town of Negril is actually tiny, and most people stay along the 7-Mile Beach stretch just to its north, or along the cliffs to its south. If you want to visit a resort area in Jamaica instead of just one all-inclusive resort, then Negril is the ideal choice because the beach is lined with restaurants, bars, shops, and even a few clubs.
