Seven Miles Of Sun Drenched Beaches

Negril Beach Jamaica is a beach resort that's spread out among two of the parishes on the island. It's considered to be one of the top ten beach resorts in the world according to many different travel magazines. It's known for its beauty, its sunset, as well as the black hills that overlook it.

There's a lot of history in Negril.

This area was explored by the Spanish and received the name from the black hills that overlook the beach. Although the city of Negril has been there for years, it didn't start to achieve popularity until the second half of the 20th century.

Back then Negril was so popular with tourists however, they'd pitch tents on the beach, or rent rooms from the locals at their houses in order to be able to get to the beach. It's been known to partake in many things including the smuggling of marijuana since the late 1950's.

This laid back style led to the development of Sandals Negril Jamaica with an unprecedented reputation of beauty and luxury, Negril Tree House Cottages an unpretentious resort with oceanfront villas and also created Negril Jamaica Vacation Package.
