Located on the westernmost point of the island, and on the far end of Negril's cliff side, the historic Negril Lighthouse is missed by many a visitor who don't go beyond Rick's Cafe during their stay. It was built in 1894 by French Company Bubbler & Bernard, on a water-filled tank 14 feet deep, to keep the tower secure even in the event of an earthquake. Initially powered by gas lamp, in 1985 it was replaced with solar energy.
The tower stands 66 feet high and its light rises at 100 feet above sea level. Its light flashing automatically every two seconds. It's worth walking down the West End and finding the superintendent so you can walk up the over 100 steps and take in the coastline view.
