in #travelfeedlast year (edited)

Experiences of Negril

From personal experience, I can tell you there are plenty of options when it comes to traveling the Caribbean and Negril is no exception. In this post, I bring you experiences from my times to Negril, sharing some memorable things with you through words and pictures. The list of activities I am about to share cannot be classified from 'least to greatest' since everything Negril is irie. In no particular order, here are the
Top 10 Things To Do While in Negril:

YaMon Catamaran (YC) Expedition

Enjoy an all you can eat and drink catamaran tour where you will venture from the 7-mile Beach to the world famous Ricks cafe. Along the way you will enjoy swimming in the Caribbean Sea, snorkeling, cave exploration and cliff jumping while at Ricks. A great way to meet other people and enjoy some laughs, drinks and free cocktails all while sailing the beautiful Caribbean blue.

Glass Bottom Boat Tour

Head out on one of these irie glass bottom boats with a friendly crew to explore the beautiful coral reefs in Negril, Jamaica. Don't forget to bargain yourself a deal if you're "no tourist!" Oh! And don't get stung by a jellyfish like me!

Visit the Bourbon Beach for a Live Reggae Concert

Enjoy live reggae music venues along the 7-mile beach. There are plenty of places to enjoy free reggae music, but The Bourbon Beach offers the best of the best! Pay a small cover charge to see some top quality artists perform live under the stars!

Venture to the Cliffs (or the 7-Mile Beach if you are on the Cliffs)

An alternative option if you're staying on the beach. Venture to the cliffs by route taxi or better yet - rent a vehicle and explore the cliffs up the West End Road toward Ricks Cafe. There are no limitations as to what one can do when venturing to the cliffs in beautiful Negril, Jamaica!


Turquoise Blue Water - simply WOW

Eat at Select Restaurants Offering Local Cuisine

There are plenty of local cuisine options to choose from along both the road and beach side. The most notable in my opinion being Coletta's, Alfreds on the Beach, and Three Dives (on the cliffs). You also have to stop the patty man who walks the length of the 7-mile beach and back everyday selling his world famous, freshly homemade beef and veggie patties!

Vibe the Beach

Mingle the beach, check out the cool shops, meet the people, it's all part of the experience. Don't be a bum and just sit at your resort! Go explore!

Go to Ricks Cafe

Visit the world famous Ricks Cafe. Here you can enjoy good food and beverage options (a bit pricey), live reggae music, cliff jumping, and a sunset you will not want to miss!

Visit the Negril Lighthouse

One of the historical monuments in Negril is the Negril Lighthouse. Built in the early 1800s, this landmark is a must see as you can venture to the top for a small charge to get a bird's eye view of the cliffs of Negril.


Oh shit! Cover's blown - that's s-irie!

Day Trip to Booby Cay Island

Although I have never been and cannot provide personal photos from my experiences to Booby Cay, a day trip to this quaint private island is always a stellar option. Enjoy snorkeling, swimming, hanging out and enjoying the view and amazing weather!

Smoke some Herbal Remedies and Sip Some Red Stripes with the Locals

Take part in the Rastafarian movement and medicate with the locals if you so wish. I was not able to partake, but I did however enjoy several Red Stripes with my Jamaican friends on numerous occasions!

I wasn't able to partake, I was in the ROTC at the time!

Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded

Thanks bro ! Yeah the blueness is unbelievable, really. I didn’t happen to hit the jungle when I was there in negril but did check out one on the beach. Can’t remember what it was called but I do remember being hassled for some “dances” (more than just dances) LOL

Now that's some good exposure based on your experience.

It's good that you were able to be in all those spaces.
I'm sure the food sold in most non-luxury restaurants, but well made like home is much better for tasting the real flavor of the island.

Actually,i'm sure it would be a great experience to meet all of us who make life in this tribe. An unforgettable life experience.
Thank you for sharing @conradsuperb

Excellent area friend, everything to enjoy, soon I will ask you the favor of giving me one of your photos to create history, Jamaica has much to give, I do not think that there is someone who does not find an ideal place in Negril, is simply fantastic.

Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded

Appreciate that as always. Yessir just ask and you shall receive. All I ask is credit is given where credit is due. I would have no problems at all with sharing a photo or two for you to take us on an epic adventure through your creative writing

Yes, that is Negril...beautiful pics ;)
I like that balcony view from bourbon beach.
And you even showed me something new....where is this
Negril Lighthouse located?

Yea mon went upstairs to take a gander looking down on the stage. It was vibes central.

The lighthouse is even further up the west end past ricks about a half mile or so. You can actually see it if you’re at ricks cafe in the distance

Cool, good to know, thanks man.
I will get a nice seat on the balcony next time ;)

No one is stopping you. Make your own personal one-month JAHM fest

Why not make it a "one Life" Jahm Fest ;)

Or an “every life” jahm fest. Cats have 9 lives ;)

You can be a stowaway and fly incognito like your current steem alias. No one would know. Plus you don’t have any other plans, retiree

It is really hard to choosea #1 spot but man I'd have to say seven mile or Rick's. Everything is IRIE though as you said.

Posted via ReggaeSteem | Reggae Culture Rewarded

The seven mile is my go to. The cliffs for a night or two as well but you can’t beat the vibes happening on the beach all day every day fr
