One of the main reasons many choose Jamaica as their ideal location for a getaway is our beautiful beaches. Negril, Jamaica, is a known tourist resort town and the home of some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Here is a short list of some of the most beautiful beaches in and around Negril, Jamaica.

Seven-Mile Beach

Seven Mile Beach, whose popularity has soared over the years, is known for its fine white sand, crystal-clear water, and abundance of watersports.

Seven Mile Beach, regarded as a legendary beach by seasoned beach-hoppers, is made up of a lengthy four-mile stretch, with the remaining three miles extending into Bloody Bay.

Piracy has a long history at Seven Mile Beach. In fact, a band of rowdy pirates were once said to have ruled it, but those times are long gone. Today, Seven Mile Beach Negril is known for something entirely different: lounging on immaculate sands at one of Jamaica's best beaches.

There will be more people on the beach some days than others, but for the most part, you won't have to step over people to find a good spot because of how big the beach is.

There is always a ton of activities happening on the beach, you will find bars and restaurants of course and many watersports operators for those who wish to go snorkelling, glass bottom boat riding, banana boat riding, parasailing, jet skiing and more. You may even go horseback riding on the beach.

Bloody Bay Beach

Bloody Bay Beach

A haven for divers! Bloody Bay in Jamaica is a diver's paradise because of the vibrant coral reefs and still, clear waters. Many local businesses provide PADI certification along with catamaran cruises, snorkelling, equipment rentals, and guided SCUBA excursions.

The British naval armada's disastrous attempt to storm New Orleans during the British and American War of 1812 was organised and launched from Bloody Bay.

Because whalers butchered their catch there in the 19th century, Bloody Bay earned its name. It is said that the bay's waters frequently turned red with the blood of the whales that were towed in to be disembowelled.

According to legend, a pirate named Calico Jack Rackham and his crew of outlaws were apprehended near the bay after consuming copious amounts of rum.

Half Moon Beach

Not to be confused with the Half Moon Resort in Rose Hall Montego Bay, the sands at Half Moon Beach Negril are described as looking like "crushed diamonds". It’s the perfect beach to unwind after all the excitement in Negril or on days when you just want some sun and peace.

The closest thing to a remote island getaway, is a private, secluded beach with white sand and water as gorgeous as Seven Mile's, with hardly ever more than one beachgoer in sight. It's only ten minutes by taxi outside of Negril.

Half Moon Beach also has a thatched restaurant on the premises that serves fresh Jamaican cuisine and is neatly hidden away off the main highway. Here you can spend the morning reading a book in one of the shady hammocks or floating in the still waters, without ever being disturbed.

Booby Cay Beach

A very small island called Booby Cay is located not far from Negril, Jamaica. Many of the scenes from Jules Verne's well-known movie "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" were filmed on the small island, giving Booby Cay a claim to fame.

The tern species known as the booby bird, which visits the island annually to breed and lay eggs in the formerly secure environment of the offshore sanctuary, gave the island of Booby Cay its name.

It is a well-liked location for picnics. This is the place to be if you want to participate in thrilling water sports like swimming, scuba diving, and snorkelling. This island has many coral reefs, which serve as a breeding ground for a sizable population of vibrant marine life.

The island is great for snorkelling and scuba diving because it has coral reefs. The public can visit the island of Booby Cay at any time. The area is perfect for sunbathers, photographers, bird watchers, and people who want to participate in water sports.
