Seven Mile Beach (Negril)#2 in Best Things To Do in Jamaica
Price & Hours
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.

#1 Dunn's River Falls and Park (Ocho Rios)
If you're staying in Ocho Rios or just visiting for the day from a cruise ship, travelers insist you allot a couple of hours to climb the Dunn's River Falls. You can take a guided climb of the waterfall, hike a trail alongside it or just recline and relax on the beach at the bottom.
Vacationers say that climbing along the rocks to the top of the falls isn't rigorous, but it can be slippery. Recent visitors said you can keep your footing by wearing water shoes. Given that you'll be splashed, then soaked by the cascading water on the ascent – and some say it's a bit dangerous – it's best if you leave your young kids (or any vacation buddies who aren't strong swimmers) at the foot of the falls. The attractions recommends allotting 45 minutes to an hour to climb the falls.
