Negril is on the western most tip of the island of Jamaica and was only 'discovered' in the late 1950s when a highway was built connecting it to the nearby town of Green Island which opened it up to visitors from Montego Bay. It is probably the furthermost distance from Kingston of any town in Jamaica and has developed its own identity primarily around tourism thereby shunning the political mayhem oftentimes associated with Jamaica. It has been called the Reggae capital of the world and with good reason - there is practically a live reggae show every night of the week preceeded by nature's own lightshow - glorious sunsets. The emphasis in Negril is certainly on the environment. The completion of a US$30M sewerage system has already made a difference in the water quality of Long Bay.
Vacation Rental Property
Llantrissant is not only the oldest domicile in Negril it was the first property to offer accomodations oftentimes to wealthy Jamaican families who wanted to experience a weekend away from the stressful lives of their Caribbean ventures. The house is a lodge like structure with large posts and exposed beams. The living room opens onto a sixty foot veranda facing the sea. It is cooled by ceiling fans and louvered windows which allow sea breezes to waft throughout the house. All the beds are covered with mosquito nettings and have bedside fans. As of October 2010, the tennis court has been converted to a grass surface since the red clay court was washed out in the summer rains. It will not be playable until March 2011.
