Negril Lighthouse: Negril Attractions & Sightseeing, Jamaica
This Lighthouse is situated at south Negril Point which is at the extreme western end of the Island. Built before the turn of the last century, the Negril Lighthouse has served the people of Jamaica since 1895. The Lighthouse, located a ways out on the West End Road, past Rick's Cafe, is a 100 foot tall structure and powered by solar energy. The power source was converted back in 1985, just a decade before it's 100th anniversary. The Negril landmark still guides ships safely around Jamaica's western edge. 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 and 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.
There is no admission charge to visit the light house as of this writing. It is open 9 am to sunset daily. There are 103 stairs that will take you to the top for a bird's eye view.
The Lighthouse is located at latitude 18° 15' north and longitude 78° 23' west.
