I’m sure you’ve seen a sunset. But have you ever experienced watching the sunset at one of the best locations in the world? While warm tropical breezes engulf you? While songs from the legendary Bob Marley play live filling your ear with sweet melodies? We didn’t think so.
Rick’s Café is known for having an unrivaled view of the sunset in Jamaica. Set in the West End atop a 35-foot high cliff, it is also known for a heart-throbbing, exhilarating cliff jumping!
The cliffside was originally owned by a local doctor who was the son of the first Governor-General of the newly independent Jamaica. However, Rick’s Cafe wasn’t founded until 1974 by Richard Hershman. At this time Negril was a sleepy fishing village with few establishments, electricity, telephone, or running water. It was, however, always known for the wonderful SevenMile Beach. Rick’s Cafe added another breath-taking attraction and became the first public bar and restaurant in the area that possessed such a magnificent view of the sunset.
