7 - Mile Beach - Negril Jamaica

Negril 7 mile beach panorama Jamaica

Negril's 7 mile beach is world-renowned as being one of the world's finest beaches.

7 miles of cool, white sand and calm, shallow water

One of the reasons that this 7- mile continuous stretch of beach in Negril is so famous is that for about 100 yards out into its 2 bays it has very shallow water and it also has cool, white sand even on the hottest days.

Its waters are very warm and usually quite calm so it's a safe place for supervised children of all ages to play as is shown in the video below.

It's also great for water activities like jet-skiing, para-sailing, glass bottom boating and sail boating.

Even though the Negril beach is home to 70+ beach resorts, it is by law an open beach in its entirety so that people may stroll up and down every bit of it. So at times portions of the beach are crowded like during Springbreak but most of the time it is sparsely to moderately occupied.

Negril beach resorts all along its 7 mile stretch of beach encourage strollers to stop in at their beach bars, restaurants and shops to snack, enjoy a few drinks and / or purchase goods while they mingle. However, whether strollers purchase anything from them or not, these resorts all permit them to stop on their portion of the beach and utilize their beach lounges to rest up and relax or to lay out for a suntan.

These are just a few of the many reasons that Negril has been nicknamed the Capital of Casual!

Negril's beach resorts all consider their portion of the beach to be their resort's frontside while they consider their entrances off of Norman Manley Blvd. to be their back or alley side. That's why so many of their websites display gorgeous photographs of their places from or on the beach but few of their road signs or entrances. So these are not well done in most cases to help people identify them as they go past them on the road.

Jet Skiing

Negril is world renowned for its unrestricted views of outstandingly beautiful sunsets over the ocean, both off of its 7 - mile beach and off of its cliffs.

Below is a video of a glorious Negril sunset accompanied by a Jamaican rendition of an appropriate gospel song.

Negril Sunset


Many colorful amateur Jamaican minstrels stroll the Negril beach performing for the guests of its resorts. Here are videos of a few different Negril minstrels that you may run into on the beachfront doing their pleasant and colorful musical thing. Be sure to generously tip them if you run into them because it is hard to be on the beach all day working like they do to provide all of the tourists with entertainment.
