South Negril Point

« on: February 01 2005 17:02:00 »

Hi All;

I’m looking to visit Jamaica in September, can any decent swell be found on the west side of Jamaica around Negril Point? What is the drive time to Port Antonio from Negril?

Don't know about Negril, as all the consistent surf is on the east side. However, a tropical storm positioned south and heading north via the Caymans or Cozumel into the gulf might put some decent surf into Negril. Kind of unlikely for any short stay, though.
Getting from Negril to Kingston or Port Antonio is an all-day affair in a car (nice drive, though). There are inter-island flights that could get you there faster, at a price.

Unless there's a storm I doubt that your going to see any swells in and around negril.

I used to stay in Westmorland out in the bush. I have driven all over the island and seen lots of beachs, bays, etc. The East coast is where your most likely to find consistant surf and even that can be sketch.

The drive from negril to the eastern (opposite) end of the island an "avdenture" and will take you a long time. Not a day jaunt by any means and best done with a yardie (local).

I was in Negril last Feb. and there was a storm/cold front.  The waves were chest to head high and there was a jamaican surfer catching waves all day (on a windsurf board).  But as stated before, unless there is a storm Negril is not the best surf destination.
The most famous surf spot is Boston Beach, on the NE coast.
There were 2 articles recently in Eastern Surf Mag and Longboard Mag. about surf on the South Coast near Kingston called Bull Bay.  
If you like IRIE Vibes and Rasta culture, I wouldn't overlook Jamaica as a surf destination.

was just there sept 1, u got to stay in  bull bay at jamnesia surf camp .  billy mystic and his family are the best .  clean cheap rooms,  good food, cold drinks and right next to copa 10 mins from lighthouse.  The place is full of stoked out groms in serious need of new boards  so anybody traveling thru jamaica to surf should think about leaving them a board or two.

My friends went to Negril for a while.  Lots of naked people on the resort beach where they stayed. Zero surf.
