Top-24 Tourist Attractions in Jamaica

Negril Beach

It’s a settlement in the west of Jamaica. It once attracted freedom-loving hippies, but today it has become a resort for wealthy Americans. The main attraction is the 11-kilometre-long Negril Beach. Even in the hottest weather, its snow-white coral sand does not get hot and does not bake. It is the best diving spot in all of Jamaica. The atmosphere of absolute nonchalance in Negril is incredibly appealing.

A favourite destination for tourists and film directors. According to legend, a dragon lives in the lagoon. Once the locals thought it had no bottom at all. The lagoon is 60 metres deep. Warm and cold currents mix in the water, so you can feel the temperature difference when diving. During the day, the lagoon magically changes colour, shimmering with different colours.
