Amenities and Ambiance

The sea surrounding Parrot Cay is so beautiful that no words do them justice. Imagine aquamarine waters that turn into turquoise, yet are so clear you can often see to the bottom. Meanwhile, the beach enjoys sugar fine sand ivory in color, and is edged by tropical plants and trees.

Keep in mind that restrooms won't be found on-site, which is something to consider if you plan to spend a full day in the sun. You'll find the waters off-shore to be of good snorkeling quality, so grab some gear if you're looking to see what goes on beneath the surface.

Parrot Cay provides a calm and tranquil place to escape, since the surrounding region won't be overly crowded.
