Best bet is to take a cab.

You would have to walk on the main road for a distance which is never safe. A short cab ride will put you in the middle of the action.

It's a long walk. Figure 2 1/2 miles to get you to the start of the main beach area from RIU Palace or 3 1/2 from RIU Club Negril. Take a taxi and have the driver drop you off at one of the bars like Alfred's or 24/7 then you can explore from there. Cost should be about $5 US each way for a private taxi, less if it's a route taxi and a shared ride.

Thanks all. I just realized I posted this on the jamaica boards rather than the Negril forum.

I figured as much by looking at the aerial view of the map.

thanks!

Surprised no one mentioned that Bloody bay is part of 7 mile.

The part you want is a 4 mile section of Long bay

I thought i read somewhere that 7-mile is actually only 4 miles...

Its funny the bits and pieces you pick up from reading these boards.

i just ordered my new bathing suit and have already been having sleepless nights planning and picturing it in my head!

From the start of RIU Negril in Bloody bay to the end of long bay is 7 mile. However actual beach front is 1.3 miles in Bloody bay & 4 miles in Long bay.
