Seniors Take A Holiday In Negril


My nephew and his family recently returned from spending a holiday in Jamaica, the third largest island in the Caribbean and home to over 2.6 million people.

This beautiful island is home to the Blue Mountain range, is surrounded by a narrow coastal plain with most major towns located on the coast.


I am not sure where they vacationed, but I did learn that a hot tourism spot in Jamaica is called Negril  population 7000+.

On the island, very little compares to a long, lazy day, soaking up the sun on Negril beaches, except for putting on your evening wear and feeling the real Bob Marley reggae beat of Jamaica at several top nighttime spots.

Senior visitors will find Negril at the western-most tip of Jamaica.

For you equine lovers, explore the island on horseback, where you’ll see some of the most breath-taking scenery in the world. Then, get ready for fun-filled nights out on the island, fueled by delicious local food along with  the island’s famous Red Stripe beer.


For years, Negril’s famed 7 Mile Beach has been rated as one of the top 10 beaches in the world by many travel magazines.

Senior travelers will find the large all-inclusive resorts at the north end of the beach, and to the south, the smaller, family-run hotels. This combination provides the Negril area a large variety of rooms, services and prices.

 Seniors Soak Up The Sun On The White Sand Beaches

Negril is famous for its miles of cool, white sand beaches. It is one of the most beautiful areas in Jamaica with its laid back atmosphere. Senior visitors who stay at a hotel on the beach are literally on the beach when you walk out of the beachside of your hotel.


South of the main Negril beach area is West End Road, known as the “cliffs”, which is lined with resorts that offer more privacy.

These areas offer easy access to waters good for snorkeling and diving, and if you are so inclined…jumping points into the aqua water reaching more than 40 feet (12 m) high.

Rick’s Cafe is a great place to watch cliff jumpers. Gorgeous sunsets are not limited to Rick’s Cafe – from most locations in Negril, the evening view to the west is unparalleled.

Getting around Negril is easy. Negril is separated into the West End (cliffs) or Beach (Norman Manley Boulevard) where senior visitors will find restaurants and hotels.


The wide variety of attractions in Negril offers visitors a view of spectacular waterfalls, an experience of the islands cultural heritage at a former slave plantation, exploration of the amazingly beautiful forest of the Great Morass, a boat ride on the Black River where you can see the endangered American crocodile.

So put Negril on your travel bucket list. It will be a great holiday. jeb
