There is a small plaque that explains about the lighthouse on the outside wall. The grounds are unkept and sadly doesn't provide a visitor any means of access as it is behind a locked gate. Unfortunately, it's not worth the visit as there isn't anything...More

nestled all the way at the ned of the west end, the light house is a neat old building that you can climb the winding staircase to the top. i like swinging on the tree swing down below with all of the dogs hanging out.

We drove up there and found the gates locked. Best views from Rick's. Some rumor that it was sold to someone with plans but no financing. Stay tuned.

Stopped here and there is really nothing to do. A nice view of the sea. Best to spend your time elsewhere.

CSA has a catamaran trip (booze cruise) several times a week for its guests. The last point before returning to CSA is the Lighthouse. There is also another one before this but not certain if its is functioning or just a tourist photo opt.

You can no longer do anything other than get a photo through the gates. The government has sold to a private individual. Maybe in the future it will open to visitors. But not at time of this review. You can get a good photo from...More

Sadly it's all closed down, you cannot visit it at all, and the garden is full of grass that is not attended to, the whole site in sad to see and needs serious renovation. I read about how beautiful it is and went there on...More

Went by to visit the lighthouse but the place was closed and looked abandoned. You can get a nice picture at sunset at Rick’s Cafe which is located couple of meters next to it.

Gorgeous from a distance like Rick's. Up close, it is behind a chain linked fence with a lot of debris and has been clearly abandoned. Interestingly enough, many locals offer to "take us on a tour" as if they have some access but I am...More

there's certainly enough room to have one but you'd have to check. It's a public place and a landmark so you'd have lots of people coming through. I'd suggest a beach wedding and maybe get some photos done there, the... More

very brief trip report (1 Replies)
Stayed at Grand Palladium in Lucea. Saw Luminous Lagoon - pretty cool but the effect is quite subtle. Rented a car for 2 days - drove to Falmouth then down through Cockpit Country, from Clark's Town to Albert's Town to St Vincent then back up along an abandoned roadway that was supposed to take us toBurnt Hill but we ended up just south of Clark's Town when we finally reached a miniscule settlement. Then drove to Dunn's River Falls and took some great photos of the falls with nobody in them...More

Walking in Negril (9 Replies)
My family and I are staying at Point Village, is it possible to walk to Negril Lighthouse or is it too far? We are avid walkers and have done 7 mile beach in Grand Cayman both ways.

Response fromBlues_Pirate|
From Point Village to the Negril roundabout is 5 1/2 miles. From the roundabout to the lighthouse is 4 miles. You could try it if you are really up for an adventure. One way maybe. Then take a taxi back. I wouldn't try it though in the Jamaican sun, even with stops along the way.
