Lighthouse Road is the road that goes up the cliff from the roundabout in the center of Negril. I really enjoy walking this road even though sometimes cars go past pretty quickly! The rule of the road is, that when you hear a car coming and if the road is narrow, just slow down and let them pass, then continue on. If you are staying up at one of the cliff-side resorts, you can go for a walk and talk to real craftsmen and women, stop and get a cold Red Stripe beer, or strike up a conversation with a local. Yes, you will probably be asked to stop and look over goods from plenty of folk and if you like what you see, do so, but if not a "no thanks" is usually enough. One trick I have learned is to walk with someone and be having a conversation---most folk will not interrupt if you are into a conversation. I have been going to Negril for over 35 years and have friends there, so I enjoy seeing and talking to them----Confidence when walking is key---do not feel pressured by anyone and keep smiling!
Negril is truly a Garden of Eden in alot of ways---check out the photo of the mango tree on the side of the Road..........all kinds of fruit and veggie trees line the road, such as breadfruit and papaya.....
