Jamaican Cliff DiveNegril, Jamaica
Go jump off a cliff, if you dare. Need a shot of Dutch courage first? You’re in luck, because this popular Jamaican jumping spot is conveniently located alongside a cliff-top bar. Hang out at Rick’s Cafe in Negril while you steel your nerves – just don’t ask for a drink “on the rocks” unless you want to tempt fate...
Step onto the highest jumping point to encouraging cheers and pin-drop 35 metres into the warm, albeit splintering, embrace of the Caribbean Sea. Feeling rather proud of yourself? Now watch how the locals do it, as they climb high into the branches of a tree on the cliff’s edge and slip into the water headfirst with the grace of an Olympic platform diver.
Some of the best – and most terrifying – things in life are free.
Jumping off this cliff takes a lot of courage (and a good landing technique).
