When you get to the holiday town of Negril, you have also reached the western-most point of tropical Jamaica. No need to worry though, because, apart from a staggering choice of accommodation options, Negril has some of the most stunning beaches anywhere on the planet, and Seven Mile Beach is right up there with the best. As its name suggests, Seven Mile offers plenty of space and you can keep walking until you find the ideal spot to settle for the day.
Seven Mile Beach is at the northern periphery of sleepy Negril, and it boasts its own waterside restaurant for visitors planning to sample unique Jamaican cuisine. As is the case with most of Jamaica’s incredible coastline, local vendors claim the right to sell whatever they believe cash-laden tourists want. This can range from handcrafted items to soft drinks and even beers and in many instances, these hard-working marketers do not take “no” for an answer.
Expansive Seven Mile is free to its adoring visitors, with free-to-use picnic tables, restrooms and showers at strategic points along this pristine stretch of soft white sand. For beachgoers keen on pursuing trivial-yet-relaxing options, sun, dazzling beach and the irresistible turquoise ocean are there for the taking. Kayaks and sailing boats are available on a rental basis too.
It is no coincidence that Seven Mile Beach has been billed time and again as one of the world’s best choices. The superb sunsets give way to legendary nightlife on this magnificent stretch of tropical splendour. This is when the radiance of the day moves aside for the after-hours Jamaican experience, all under a special soul island ambience. Party time it is, and you should not have a care in the world.
