Negril was originally named by the Spanish as “Negrillo” in 1494, there are two theories behind the name. One is in reference to the black cliffs to the south of the village or the fact that there was a vast amount of black eels in the area. The town even though it has a long history didn’t really become noticed until the 20th century, today the bays and beaches are some of the most popular locations in the world. South of downtown Negril is West End Road, known as the cliff area, is lined with resorts that offer more privacy and easy access to perfect areas for snorkelling and cliff jumping.
