The A1 highway was constructed about ten years ago making the drive a lot smoother. Previously, the road surface was less than desirable, and there were a lot of sharp corners. In fact, the most famous Jamaican T Shirt then says, “I Survived the Road to Negril”. Today, that is no longer a concern and travelling time is even shorter, safer and more comfortable.
If you are a beach lover, then Negril is certainly your cup of tea. The Seven Mile Beach is to die for, the sand is white, powdery and feels like cotton under the feet. For a bit of geography, Jamaica is situated in the Caribbean Sea, and not the Atlantic Ocean, as a result the waves are generally flat caressing the shoreline ever so often. Generally, the seafloor is flat without any sinks making it very friendly for kids and non-swimmers alike.
