Negril Travel Guide
An eye-catching white sand beach hugs the Caribbean for almost seven miles in the city of Negril. Negril is only a 1 ? hour drive from Montego Bay. Negril has a laid-back way of life, but the resort town has always retained the sleepy tropical charm that first fascinated visitors that seek the sun.
Serene Strolls on white sand beaches, swimming and snorkeling in aqua-blue waters and optional sunbathing are only part of your "do-as-you-please" Negril vacation on Jamaica.
Craft bazaar and duty-free shopping opportunities is plenty available in and around Negril. Golf and tennis are all day available at the Negril Hills Golf Club, just south of Negril. Horse riding treks to the passionate ruins of Whitehall Great House and boat rides to Booby Cay, where and portions of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" were filmed offer popular pastimes.
