“Truly a Jamaica Mon....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014

Came by taxi from 7 Mile Beach to check out this famous landmark.... Well....Expected a lesson in history, instead met an ungroomed dude who looked like a drifter and appeared to be high on an unknown substance, and wanted to charge us a random amount for entry fee. We declined the tour, but did some cliff exploration and took pictures of the shoreline. Splendid landscape indeed, but why do the locals use the best spots on the rocks as their dumping grounds for dead washing machines, dated computers, fridges and - in big numbers - diapers???? Such a shame....

“Saw it from a distance”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

Very cool view from Rick's Cafe. We got some really cool pictures. We saw it all lit up when the sun went down. Didn't know you could go right up there. Maybe on my next visit.

“History Lesson and great view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

I made the climb and enjoyed hearing the history of the lighthouse including how the LIGHT technology has changed over time. The Keeper of the lighthouse was friendly and accommodating and the view, albeit a little scary to be so high was breath-taking... highly recommend taking time out to enjoy this historical piece of Negril.

“Out of the way”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

Not a lot of shade from the mid-day sun but worth it to see the diver jumping off the rocks and into the beautiful turquoise sea.

“Close to Rick's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

Quiet place to spend 15 minutes or less - on the way to Rick's. Locals will dive off the 30 plus feet seawall for a tip.
