Spending Time With Your Family
When it comes to family fun, Jamaica offers much to experience. If you’re looking to step out on your own, for excursions off your resort, Negril is the place you want to be.
Drawing families year after year, Negril offers beautiful beaches, surf fun, and spectacular views. We’ve compiled some of the favorite attractions and things to do near your Negril resort.
Leave the electronics at home. In Negril, it’s all about the sun on your face and the ocean breezes in your hair—and we offer a little something for everyone. From your youngest family member looking for the perfect place to build sandcastles to older children who enjoy watersports, kayaking, and sunfish-sailing, Negril has it all covered.
Negril also offers relaxing sunset cruises as the perfect way to all unwind together. Unlike the rougher waters up north, Negril’s seas are perfect for snorkeling and glass-bottom boat rides.
Every day is an adventure in Negril. You don’t visit the waterfalls to just take pictures of them—you climb up yourself.
- Visit Mayfield Falls
- Black River Safari
- Take in the famous cliff-side sunsets at Rick’s Cafe, while watching cliff divers leap off 40 foot cliffs into the sea
- Shop around Times Square mall, bartering for unique souvenirs
Along this stretch of heaven, you’ll find a variety of places to eat from family-run, casual beachside places to stop for a snack to the eclectic, colorful little local stops for a sample of the local cuisine. You’ll also find a variety of water sports and boat tours. Older kids can snorkel in the coral reef, or take in the sunset while cruising the sapphire-blue seas.
Experience The Negril Cliffs
Made of old coral, the Negril cliffs, located at the southern end of the beach, are ideal for snorkeling. We don’t recommend this for families with young children, but young adults will send postcards home all about it.
