Royal Palm Reserve

Nature Reserve in Negril

Officially closed to the public due to lack of interest, the 289-acre Royal Palm Reserve stretches along the southern side of the Great Morass, and consists of three distinct swamp forest types: royal palm forest, buttonwood forest and bull thatch forest. They’re all home to butterflies, doctorbirds, herons, egrets, endangered black parakeets, Jamaican woodpeckers and countless other birds. There's still someone on site; call ahead. Take Sheffield Rd east of Negril for 6km and turn left after the golf course.
