Negril Lighthouse Tours and Activities
Read MoreShow Less
Lighting up the westernmost point of Jamaica, Negril Lighthouse has been guiding ships away from the craggy promontory below since 1894. The landmark stands sentinel at 65 feet (20 meters), and is a popular attraction for travelers yearning for a panoramic bird’s-eye view of Negril’s gorgeous coastline and the endless sea.
One of the earliest concrete lighthouses, this photogenic beacon was originally powered by kerosene. Now its flashing warning light is powered by the omnipresent Jamaican sun. You can walk up close to the lighthouse and to the edge of the headland where the beacon is stationed for gorgeous photo opportunities, especially at sunset. No doubt it will feature prominently in your photos while on the Negril coast.
Things to Know Before You Go
- The Negril Lighthouse is a must-see for all first-time visitors to the area.
- The base of the lighthouse is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers, and offers a lovely view out to the sea.
How to Get There
Easily accessible by taxi, the lighthouse is on West End Road, just south of Negril.
When to Get There
Although the lighthouse is no longer open to the public, you can still drive or walk up to it and enjoy the sea view. Jamaica is a year-round destination; beat the crowds by going in the shoulder seasons in the spring and fall.
Hop Over to Rick’s Cafe
Just down the way from the lighthouse, about a 10-minute walk north along West End Road, is another famous Negril haven, especially for lovers of sunsets. Serving revelers since 1974, Rick’s Cafe is a veritable institution. The popular bar and restaurant is legendary for reggae-fueled cocktail parties and the death-defying cliff-divers who leap off the cliffs into the deep water some 30 feet (9 meters) below.
Address: West End Road, Negril, Jamaica
