Seven Mile Beach Activities
Seven Mile Beach Jamaica
Whether you stay along Seven Mile Beach Jamaica or make a day trip from Kingston, Ocho Rios, or another city, you'll find plenty of room to yourself. As the longest uninterrupted stretch of sand in Jamaica, the aptly named Negril beach rarely feels crowded. While there's not really an off season, the number of visitors will change during the year, even during the week. Even if you're planning on visiting during spring break, you'll have plenty of elbow room.
Both types of beachcombers—those who want to take it slow and the active set alike—will find something to suit their fancies at Seven Mile Beach Jamaica. If you're the sort who dreams of a day lounging in the sun with a good book, there will be a chaise lounge with your name on it. The calm, warm waters are particularly inviting for swimming and taking a dip. Active sorts will find plenty to do, too, like parasailing and windsurfing. Donning a snorkeling mask and dipping below the waters will lead you into an underground world teeming with rainbows of colorful fish, caves, and corals. Some parts of this Negril Beach are clothing optional, meaning visitors can decide how much they want to wear.
The other Negril Beach, Bloody Bay, is another excellent choice for spending a day in the sun. Along with the typical beachside pursuits, you can enjoy SCUBA diving, sunset catamaran tours, and deep-sea fishing. Both of the beaches are popular gathering places for live music and good eats, especially live calypso parties and barbecues. The resort town's restaurants, many overlooking the beach, serve French fare, continental cuisine, fresh seafood, and traditional local foods. In addition, you'll also find an array of shops, tours, and sunset sails in and around Seven Mile Beach. Other private beaches, including James Bond Beach in Oracabessa and Time & Place in Trelawny, allow visitors to leave their suits behind. But the majority of the beaches of Jamaica, including most of Seven Mile Beach, require proper attire.
