|About these ratings|
Check your calendar before taking your tots to the cumin-colored sands of this northwest Jamaica beach. Like its name suggests, Seven Mile has plenty of space for you to find a spot, but you'll share the area with a few adults-only resorts as well as those who like to sunbathe in the nude. The most family-friendly day at Seven Mile is Sunday. When the sun goes down, the sandy spread becomes a popular nightlife hot spot: "At night, a walk up and down the beach will lead to parties at certain bars and clubs located on the beach [...] or grab a few drinks at a more laid back beach bar," one TripAdvisor reviewer suggested.
Like a lot of Jamaican beaches, Seven Mile sometimes has vendors who can often be persistent in hopes of selling everything from crafts to beer to fresh lobster. A simple "no thank you" will often suffice, but don't be surprised if a vendor is unrelenting. You'll also find water sports operators offering rentals like kayaks or sailboats. For those in search of relaxation, soaking up the sun is another popular way to spend the day at the expansive Seven Mile Beach. The beach is free for visitors to access at any time, and there are also public picnic tables, showers and restrooms available for use.
