Check your calendar before taking your tots to the cumin-colored sands of this western beach in Negril. 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. When the sun goes down, the sandy spread becomes a popular party spot. 

Recent travelers said Seven Mile features the clearest water they've ever seen, with others calling it perfect. Still similar to 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.
