Rhodes Hall Plantation: Negril Attractions & Sightseeing, Jamaica
Rhodes Hall Plantation is a magnificent property with a unique history covering over 550 lush acres located just 5 miles before Negril. There is one mile of private beach and coral coastline gently curling around lovely, reef shielded, Rhodes Hall Bay. Colorful tropical fish develop in our government-protected hatchery and coral formations can be viewed in shallow waters adjacent to our beaches. Natural fresh water mineral springs rise up from the seafloor along our coastline soothing tired muscles.
This private working plantation has fruits and vegetables in continuous cultivation including coconuts, bananas, papaya, mangoes, pineapples, oranges, lime, cocoa, plantain, plums, avocado, tamarind, breadfruit, okra, tomato, cucumber, yams, ackee, carrots, calaloo, and allspice. Fish are raised in ponds fed by our natural mineral spring which also provides our freshwater requirements for the entire property.
Rhodes Hall Plantation has been in continuous operation since the 1700's when its principal products were sugar cane and rum. Copies of original shipping tallys are available for viewing as old as 1767 with originals still intact at the hall of records in Spanish Town. A number of cauldrons dot the property, originally used by slaves who worked at boiling down the sugar cane. Various artifacts and implements from the era have been discovered and preserved for display.
Over 70 Horses graze freely in the hills when not in use for horseback riding and our morass (Jamaican swamp) is one of the largest crocodile reserves in Western Jamaica with over 70 residents and an adjoining lake simply named "Crocodile Lake". Other animals living on the property include geese, guinea hens, chickens, roosters, ducks, goats, mongoose, crabs, cats, dogs, doves, parrots, humming birds, doctors birds, myna birds, seagulls, pelicans, sandpipers, herron, vultures, and even peacocks.
The terrain covers all that Jamaica has to offer; from beaches to coral coastline, to mountaintops as high a 550 feet affording excellent views all the way to Negril. The lush tropical jungles feature impressive stands of ancient bamboo and numerous types of trees and other rainforest vegetation creating a bird watchers paradise.
