The home of rum, reggae and Bob Marley, the island of Jamaica is a wonderful destination in the Caribbean. Above all, it’s ideal for people looking to have a good time, especially during Spring Break. Of the country’s top destinations, the parties in Negril top the rest. This beach paradise is a tourist hotspot that comes alive when the sun goes down, while also offering beach clubs during the day. There is a variety of tours that will take you partying in Negril during an unforgettable vacation.
Where are the Parties in Negril?
Most Negril partying happens on the beach, though there are a number of places more off the beaten path where you can have a good time. Some of the top reggae bands in Jamaica play regularly in Negril. The majority of the city’s hotspots are located on Norman Manley Boulevard, while every night you’ll find somewhere on the beach offering a live concert. Ask your concierge staff for places to find the top parties in Negril.
Some of the best places to go after dark are Alfred’s Ocean Palace and Risky Business, both of which shine with reggae performances. Another popular place to go wild is The Jungle, the top dance club in Negril. The club’s slogan is “Unleash the Animal”, and it’s a perfect place to let your hair down and party until you drop! If you fancy something raunchier, then head to the Hedonism II all-inclusive hotel where guests in thong bikinis and bondage suits are the norm. The hotel’s disco is open until late.
Does Negril Party During the Day?
In terms of daytime parties in Negril, you can’t go wrong with a day at the beach. Also, you can’t go wrong by taking boat tours in Negril — they tend to have the party atmosphere you seek. First of all, The Negril Beach and Sunset tour takes you to a seven mile strip of beach, a local craft market, and the iconic Rick’s Cafe. Take the Negril Beach and Sunset tour from your Lucea resort, or if you’re staying as far as Montego Bay or even Runaway Bay. After a scenically inspiring ride, unwind on the talcum-powder-white sand and relax to the sound of the waves. The beach you visit offers excellent shower and restroom facilities, as well as tasty local cuisine.
Afterward, party at Rick’s Cafe. Here you’ll find a stunning cove with different platforms to jump from; the highest is 35 feet above the water! The sunsets here are truly spectacular, and have become renowned throughout the island. A wonderful way to end a fabulous day!
You can also take a tour that will just visit Rick’s Cafe if you just want to soak in the party atmosphere, the reggae, and the incredible sunsets. Savor the drop from one of the five jump-off points or just watch people take the plunge!
Party on a Catamaran
Another fabulous way to party in Negril is with the Catamaran Snorkel and Sail tour, which takes you on a luxurious catamaran. Head to an incredible bird and fish sanctuary, and see the breathtaking life under the surface as you snorkel in the Caribbean. Later on you’ll go to Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville for fun activities, reggae music, and refreshing drinks. Savor a trip down the 100 foot water slide, and enjoy the fantastic water trampolines during a sun soaked day by the Caribbean!
