This Lighthouse is situated at south Negril Point which is at the extreme western end of the Island. The concrete Tower which is painted white, stands 66 feet above ground level and the light is elevated 100 feet above sea level.
The Lighthouse has an automatic white light which flashes every two seconds.
The Negril Lighthouse was built in 1894 by the French Company Bubbler & Bernard, on a tank 14 feet deep, which is kept filled with water. This is to keep the Tower balanced & secured in the event of an earthquake.
The Tower which is built inland, is cylindrical and has an elaborate light enclosed in a metal and glass protector on top of which is a wind-wane. Initially, the Lighthouse was operated by a gas lamp, but in 1956 it was replaced by an acetylene gas lamp. This was used until 1985 when it was replaced by solar energy.
The Peter Tosh Memorial Garden is maintained by his family in the town of Belmont, in the Parish of Westmoreland, along Jamaica’s southern coast. It is at the site of the home where Peter grew up and is open to the public.

Jamwest Motorsports and Adventure Park was started 10 years ago with the first entry, Jamwest Speedway, back then it was only a 1/4 mile drag strip. Five years ago the owners decided to incorporate a circuit track which would include the existing drag strip. Work commenced almost immediately.
The facility now boasts a 2 -Mile circuit racing and drag racing facility with adequate runoffs and traps and will shortly obtain FIA (international automobile federation) certification.
Recently, the owners decided to enhance the wetlands (morass) and natural spring ponds that exist on the property by making them more accessible. Everyone who had been to see them had found them to be interesting and it was believed that they would be a great addition to the package.
To complete the experience they have also added an ATV Tour, a Safari Tour, Zipline Challenge, horse back riding, and of course Jamwest Speedway driving experience. The property is also home to the largest goat farm in Jamaica.
