Sandy Bay, Jamaica is a seaside town in western Jamaica. There are several churches such as the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the Baptist Church, the Methodist Church, and the Church of God.

Sandy Bay was also home to a Jockey International Factory which was a major employer for the town. They have since left to find cheaper labour.
