Margaritaville Negril is multi-millionaire Jimmy Buffet’s ultimate dream of a beachfront bar and grill experience. This, now world-renowned, franchise began as a hippy haunt in the 1960’s and has been thrilling visitors to the island ever since.

Margaritaville Negril is a brisk 1hr and 27min drive from Montego Bay’s International Airport and is ideally located on the northern end of Negril’s Iconic Seven Miles Beach stretch.

Take a dip in the refreshing, aqua-blue Caribbean Sea or chill in the sand either on an open lounger or in a beachfront cabana. Or if you are up for exploring, walk the Seven Mile Beach or take a ride on a Catamaran, Kayak, Banana or Glass-Bottom boat. Margaritaville is a great spot for chilling or adventuring.
