Jeff's Sunset at Riu in Negril Jamaica

Sunset at Riu Palace Tropical Bay

September 18th - 21st, 2016

Speechless. Sometimes words can add nothing to the natural world that is all around us! As we have mentioned many times, there can be beauty nearly everywhere you turn in this world we inhabit. Today we want to thank our Boardie family member Jeff for sending us this incredible sunset photo taken at the Riu Palace Tropical Bay on Negril's Bloody Bay. This is just north of our famous Seven Mile Beach, where pirates and then wailers plied their trade centuries ago. Now it has become a setting of luxury vacationing for those in the know!

For years the Negril's seven mile beach has been rated as one of the top ten beaches in the world by many travel magazines.The north end of the beach is home to the large, all-inclusive resorts, and to the south are the smaller, family-run boutique hotels. This combination gives the Negril area a large variety of rooms, services and prices.

South of the main Negri 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, with jumping points reaching more than 40 feet (12 m) high. Rick's Cafe is a place to watch the cliff jumpers. They are incredible to watch.But gorgeous sunsets are not limited to Rick's Cafe - from most locations is Negril the view is unparalleled!

The fact that Negril is still underdeveloped remains a significant factor in its undoubted charm. The unspoilt, untamed and unforgetable Negril- Jamaica's jewel in the crown where our open 7 mile beach entices you to walk, to swim, to play... and to make friends. Our rugged cliff side on the West End burst into fire at sunset in the many bars and restaurants, whilst the peaceful afternoons show off the many caves and diving areas.

Negril is unique in its equal portions of beach and cliff, its numerous eccentric characters, its laid back atmosphere and its friendliness! Like the sun setting dramatically over the sea, and returning each morning, we hope that you will return after sampling the diversity that is Negril. Have a great holiday.

Jamaica is the third largest island in the Caribbean and home to over 2.6 million people. Our beautiful island in the sun is home to the Blue Mountain range and is surrounded by a narrow coastal plain. Most major towns and cities are located on the coast. Chief towns and cities include the capital Kingston, Spanish Town, Mandeville, Ocho Rios, Port Antonio and Montego Bay. Its indigenous Arawakan speaking Taino inhabitants named the island Xaymaca, meaning the "Land of Wood and Water". It later became a colony of Great Britain and became an independent country in 1962.

Modern Jamaica is just as you imagined a tropical island to be. It has stunning white beaches, lush foliage and tropical weather all year round. Jamaica also has remarkable arts and cuisine and a rich cultural heritage. It boasts the best golf courses in the West Indies and its contribution to the world of sports is impressive considering its small size. It caters to everyone from beach bums to newly weds to the high end traveller.

Jamaica is intense in its beauty and its people and will leave a lasting impression. Come discover the country of rum, reggae and Bob Marley. Of sun drenched beaches and warm tropical breezes.


Getting around in Negril is an easy thing. Negril is separated into the West End (cliffs) or Beach (Norman Manley Boulevard) where your fair share of restaraunts and hotels lie. Walk about as the atmosphere is relaxed and meeting people is part of the experience. Just remember driving is on the left side in JA, so you must walk on your right (same side of the road) in order to see traffic coming towards you. The taxis are inexpensive and plentiful so if walking is not your pleasure then grab a taxi (always negotiate your fare before riding) and get about seeing the sights.

Please remember that the only legal taxis have red license plates. They are legally licensed and insured to carry paying passenger.
