This was one of our favourite beaches on the island. There was such a nice relaxed atmosphere here as it is not primarily a tourist beach destination. We did see a few tourists, but mostly locals having a family day out. It had a calm sea and white beach, good for swimming, snorkelling and a bit of sunbathing. There are... More

Easy to get to by taking the local bus, stops right outside the road leading to the beach it is a 5 minute walk. White sand aqua blue sea, warm and inviting. Lots of places nearby to eat/drink too.

so calm and quiet place, blue sea and sandy beach, really nice place to relax. The only thing is if you want to snorkel there, you must have a white flag with you because of jest ski coming too close the beach

A personal favourite in Barbados. Flat, turquoise water at the southern end of the West Coast. Easily accessible and safe for weaker swimmers normally.

not recommended if you want to lie on the sand and sunbathe as it's very rocky but it is a great spot for a picnic. However you can picnic here and walk 5 minutes to a sandy spot - get the best of both worlds

We went here 3 times in 10 days. Once on a drive to check out the west coast. We had a picnic lunch here. Back to try snorkeling - it was a bit wavy = sediment in the water so poor visibility. Then back again to watch the sunset. We were twice on weekends and it was fairly busy with... More

This is an ok beach - somewhat out of the way and really good for snorkelling. They call it Batts Rock because of the Rock so don't expect it to be smoothe for swimming. There is a decent car park if you are driving down. The best one can say is that it is less busy than the south coast... More

Beautiful beach idyllic, hardly a soul in sight, extremely clean what else can I say but paradise. If you want clear waters and soft white powdery sand then you have come to the right place no doubt about it. Bring your sunscreen and a towel you won't be disappointed. If you want to stay a while also bring some sun... More
