Parottee Bay

Parotte Bay is a rather large bay off Jamaica's west coast. Both private homes and hotel properties exist just behind the beach, making it a great place for tourists and locals to mingle.

Situated in Parottee Beach, Parottee Bay is on the West coast of Jamaica. You should consider dropping by regardless of whether you are staying in the vicinity. Beachgoers should keep in mind that, though Parottee Bay isn't considered a quiet and secluded part of the coast, you wouldn't necessarily call it a busy beach either. This makes it a good option for vacationers who want to make the most of their trip to the beach but wish to stay away from the most populated spots.

Amenities and Ambiance

Because the shore of Parottee Bay goes on for quite a distance, there are some areas that are thinner stretches than others. No matter where you are, you'll encounter white sands, green trees, and topaz waters.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline. The water here is clear and good for snorkeling, so bring your gear if you're looking to see some exciting marine life.

Parottee Bay offers visitors a calm and peaceful place to escape, thanks to the fact that the location that surrounds the beach is not heavily urbanized.
