Parlatuvier is a small close-knit fishing village and the people are generally kind, open and friendly people.

The aura of the area has a serene, calming, peaceful atmosphere - the perfect place to revitalise and rejuvenate.

The cottage is located next to a fishing jetty/pier where fresh fish are brought in everyday from the boats. Large Manta rays at times swim around the pie - especially evenings.

Parlatuvier bay is a large sheltered bay, divided in the middle by the long pier: one half with cool, calm waters for swimming, peddle boating or kayaking, and the other half with coral stone reefs - great for paddle surfboarding, snorkeling and catching lobsters! It is an experienced swimmers dream. Care must be taken when swimming as there are no lifeguards in the bay. There are avalable at the cottage, life jackets of all sizes - from toddler to xl for the safety of the guests at the house.

We have added a five seater, canopy top, peddle boat, a standing paddle surfboard and a 2 seater tandem kayak for the enjoyment of guests!
