The Negril lighthouse is a short walk from Ricks Cafe and once you arrive there you have this beautiful lighthouse with the Caribbean ocean as your background, it doesn't get much better than that. There are a few places you can sit and relax while looking at the cliffs and ocean and Ricks Cafe is just around the corner.

This iconic spot is a definite must stop on the West End, but be conscious of the fact that this is not commercially run and a hang-out for hustlers. The hustlers are harmless and just looking for a couple bucks (USD) to entertain you some. I personally part with $2 to the hustler of my choosing for a little color... More

It is right next to Ricks. There are beautiful views from the top of the Lighthouse. Also there are cliff divers as this is at the Negril Caves, and a lot less frantic than Ricks. You can go down to the water and check out the caves, have a cliff dive jump for your photo...for short money and take your... More

Once you get bored with the view ask a local to show you the 'running man'. Impressive cliff jump. Nice, safe ladder to get down to the water where you can scramble down some rocks and get in the water, snorkel, or enjoy a spliff in a cave with seats carved into the rock.

The view from the top of the lighthouse is amazing. Our Taxi driver stopped here whilst we were on a tour of Negril. The lighthouse keeper was a lovely man who showed us to the top of the lighthouse, the steps are very narrow but it was nice to see the inside and top of a lighthouse that we wouldn't... More

The Lighthouse is a nice place to check out the sunset, there is little park there so you can relax and enjoy the view, just remember everywhere you go here someone will harass you to buy some cheap trinket or a taxi driver will ask you for a ride, it gets annoying after awhile, just say no thank you.

Lots of steps to climb but well worth it. The views are amazing, especially the sunset. May not want to try this in extreme heat.

While visiting Ricks for the cliff divers, the lighthouse is just a short distance away. Great for pictures and backdrop for the island.

We were in the area of the Cliffs of Negril so our cabbie stopped by to see if the keeper would take us up to the top of the old lighthouse. We were able to get a quick tour of this older landmark. The keeper lead my wife and I to the top of this lighthouse which offered a really... More
