The sand is white and soft the water... More

We have visited here on a number of occasions when we are in Barbados. This beach is clean, bar, and food available, prices are in Barbados dollars NOT US dollars. about 2 Barbados to 1 US.

It was a clean and tidy beach with a street vendor in a van selling food and drinks. Ideal if you fancy branching off your hotel grounds for a change. You will get some vendors walking along the beach trying to sell their wares but they are always friendly and polite. I do love Barbados!

The Hilton Hotel is located there, the hotel is very luxurious with delicious food. Original cannons the war are on display. One of the best beaches on the island, great for picnics.

We spent three separate days at this beach to get away from the seaweed (known as sargassum) troubled southern and eastern shores, and it's a delight. Gently shelving glorious sandy beach where children can swim safely without risk of big waves. Book in at the 'Boatyard' which is a restaurant bar at the Bridgetown end of the bay, who offer...

Our hotel was suffering from seaweed overdose, so they offered transport to this beach. Loved it. Plenty of chairs and umbrellas available for hire, and the vendors were open to negotiation as we were only there for a few hours. Stunning clear water, plenty of sea life if you venture out a little with a snorkel.

We visited here on a number of occasions during our visit to Barbados last week. This beach is clean, lively and one if the busier beaches. My husband loves snorkelling and swam with turtles here and found a wreck and saw beautiful fish. This beach is the one visited by most tourists when the cruise ships dock. Usually on a... More
