Negril's cliffs area rises to a height of about 30' - 40' from the ocean. It gradually rises up starting from west of the downtown area (shown below right) and runs around south along the oceanfront for about 6 miles before gradually dropping back down to ocean level.
This whole area is also known as the West End and it is the most authentically Jamaican part of Negril for those of you who crave to experience the real Jamaica.
Because of its many serpentine twists and turns and its speeding drivers, the cliff road is hard to drive or to walk upon and it can be quite dangerous for unwary pedestrians and cyclists. So be careful whenever you're on it.
Also, some of its native residents can be scammers and toughs to lone tourists so stay in groups when walking about on it. However, longtime repeat visitors tend to stay in this area alone as they become less touristy and more recognized and accepted by the locals. So it is not an unsafe area, just not always friendly to timid or unwary tourists.
Negril is very well known for its glorious sunsets that take place over its west-facing, unimpeded ocean horizon. Many people end their day at an overhanging cliff bar, relaxing and enjoying the sun's glorious, gradual demise because of their cliff high view of the ocean's horizon.
Negril.com's message board and Trip Advisor's Negril Forum have many daily threads that provide travelers with much up-to-date tourist information.
Owners, Managers and Patrons of All of Negril's Enterprises
All encyclopedias rely upon experts to provide them with authoritative and true articles about their subjects and this video encyclopedia is no exception. However, the articles that we use here are in photo and video form, so the experts whom we must rely upon to produce them are Negril's enterprise owners, managers and their patrons. After all, who is better quailfied to provide good visual information than these folks who have valid, first-hand knowledge about each of Negril's resorts, restaurants, clubs, shops, road stands, attractions and activities?
Therefore, we here request Negril's enterprise owners to record for us a brief digital video welcoming people to their enterprise and describing its attributes (preferably with them and some of their staff and / or their patrons in it). This will humanize their enterprise to the public by being a very friendly and inviting way of encouraging people to come to Negril for their vacations.
Other Videos and Photos
Enterprise owners (and their patrons) may also provide us with separate additional videos of some of the unique, interesting things that occur within their enterprises.
