Called the 'capital of casual', Negril is located on Jamaica's western coastline, where dramatic rugged cliffs and miles of a pristine white sand beach create a setting that can be found nowhere else on the island. Refresh your body and soul at Idle Awhile The Beach. Intimate, sophisticated, upscale and casual - the true 'Negril' experience on the white sand of Seven Mile Beach.
