'Where the Ocean Meets the Sky', Jamaica, Negril, West Side Cliffs

Below is an excerpt from my travel blog. Cheers.

 

The ocean off the coast of Negril, Jamaica is magnificent. Although Negril is known for its beautiful beach, it has the most stunning cliffs affording amazing views of the ocean on its West End (see the map below). I climbed down the cliffs that evening and found a man-made trail that weaved in and out of the rocky ledge. Watching the sunset from this vantage point is distinctly different than that of a beach. The ocean surrounding Jamaica was calm as could be while I was visiting the island. Like a creature slowly breathing in and out, the ocean would rise and fall against the stone cliffs in a rythmic fashion. This slow, calming pulse of the ocean, the sound of water rushing off the rocky cliffs, a cool ocean breeze and the colors of the Jamaican sky combined to produce one of the most relaxing sunsets I've experienced in some time.
