Jamaica is not only a paradise with beautiful beaches, crystal-clear water and impressive landscapes; it is also the Party Capital of the Caribbean.
Few countries are so defined by their music as Jamaica. Besides reggae, you’ll also find plenty of raggamuffin, calypso, dancehall, soul, hip-hop, jazz, gospel, ska and rock.
The island has many beach establishments dedicated to fun and music lovers. The best places in the country for partying are the Hip Strip in Montego Bay, which is not on the beach, and the entire Negril Beach, where the party lasts until breakfast time.
Every day hundreds of parties are organized in the beaches of Jamaica, with bonfires on the sand, live music, huge loudspeakers and theme parties. Here we propose just a few of the best.
Montego Bay (Mobay) has a number of bars that are worth exploring, but Pier 1 is the place to be during the daytime and in the evening, when it becomes the center of nightlife. A popular place among the locals is Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, which is well worth a visit.
In Negril, the Seven Mile Beach is most popular place for partying. During the day the beautiful beaches of white sand are basically quite calm, but when the evening sets in many people looking for a party find exactly that at the parties organized by the bars, restaurants and discotheques.
Rick’s Café is the most famous joint in Negril, with a live reggae band 365 days a year. It is a privileged location with spectacular views of the cliffs, where you can indulge in the beautiful sunset.
Hedonism II, with its famous beach parties nearly every night throughout the week, is not the best place for those looking for something calm and relaxing.
All year round a number of festivals and concerts are held on the beach. Spring is the time for the famous Spring Break at Montego Bay and Negril. In summer there’s the Reggae Sumfest, the world’s most famous reggae festival, lasting a whole week in Montego Bay, and the Black Beach Week in Negril.
It’s nearly impossible not to be taken over by the rhythm and the music, so take a sip of rum and get ready to spend a few hours enjoying the best nightlife on the beach.
