Shop and Haggle on Seven Mile Beach

Shopping, browsing and haggling at one of Negril Beach's numerous seafront shops is part of the fun. Dotting the white sandy shores are over a dozen independent shacks, tables and mini boutiques selling paintings, wood carvings, colorful Rasta-print sarongs, Bob Marley souvenirs and more trinkets than you can imagine. Some will call out to you as you stroll the beach during the day. Smile and approach or say "no thanks" if you're not interested. When you're ready to buy, make sure to bargain and offer a fair price to start (inquire with your hotel before you start your shopping). These vendors work hard and many are passionate about their skills. A standout is Mason the wood carver, located close to Rondel Village Resort. He makes custom pieces for those who prefer to have their own design. And look out for the mobile vendors too, who sell just about everything you can think of, from fruits to Reggae CDs and jewelry on the go.
