Coconuts at Long Bay

Calling all Jamaica experts... Anyone ever stay at Coconuts on Long Bay. I have been to Negril several times so I thought I'd try something a little more remote. Will be taking my teenage daughter. You don't have to warn me about her getting bored. She's fine with reading, exploring, snorkelling and sunbathing.

Hi Tivertonhouse , or Cartera 25 !

Coconuts/Long Bay/Westmoreland is about 20 min from Negril. You'll be on other end of island past Port Antonio, Willem...Liz recently did a round-the-island including the whole coast you're headed to. See her trip report on www.jamaicans.com . the westside wanderings bulletin board section.Long Bay up here sometimes has, for Jamaica, fairly good surfer waves = the area's relatively untouched, some cottages, a restaurant on the beach, some trad.Jamaica concrete villas, nothing stylee, nothing luxe -- laid back, but magnificent scenery.

Coconuts is in Little Bay and I wouldn't stay there at the moment either.

Little Bay would be a nice place to visit though, for the day from Negril.

Long Bay in Portland is beautiful and you really shouldn't miss it Faith! People talk about the undertow/waves but having grown up near Long Island beaches myself, I don't get the big deal...it's not near that kind of wavy, maybe in a storm or something...
