  3. Westmoreland-Overview


Westmoreland is a taste of the rustic countryside with a dash of sea and sand. The parish was so named in 1703 because of its location as the westernmost parish in Jamaica. The parish bears some resemblance to colonial Jamaica, reflected in its architecture and quaint towns.  In the busy town of Savanna-la-Mar, the capital, bicycles are a common mode of transportation, giving visitors a nostalgic feeling. It is a lovely parish with dense forests and greenery, a picturesque countryside dotted with concrete and wooden structures. This unique and beautifully rustic parish is home to the famous Negril, located in the county of Cornwall at the western end of Jamaica.
