Across two Jamaican Parishes – Westmoreland and Hanover, there is the beach resort town Negril. It is a relatively small town that is known for its long sandy beaches and shallow bays. The bizarre name Negril was given by the Spanish colonizers in the year 1494. The vast breeding of the black eels along the shore is the predominant reason. It was originally called “Anguila Negra” by the Spanish settlers.
Negril is a popular tourist destination for fishing and cliff jumping. The crystalline water and the miles-long beaches make the place a perfect tropical escape for travelers.
