My husband and I went to Bottom Bay by the local buses as I had read that it was one of 'the most beautiful beaches in the world'. It was nice but we have seen better (although everyone else seems to find it wonderful). But we did go in August so the colours of the sand and sea were probably... More

Myself and my partner visited Bottom Bay today (25th aug) after hearing good things. We travelled by bus from Bridgetown for approx 55 minutes to get to the beach. After a ten minute walk we found the beach at the end of a signposted road. The beach was pretty but covered in several metres of seaweed close to the shore.... More

Bottom Bay really is the real deal. Talcum powder sand, swaying palms, crashing waves. Just don't risk going for a swim. The seabed falls away sharply very close to the shore and this not only accounts for the spectacular waves, but also a very dangerous undertow current, which will sweep you out to open water quite easily. So relax on... More

Easy to find and easy to park. a short walk down some steps and you come across a deserted beach with only a coconut seller and his friend. He greeted us when we arrived and came for a chat but in no way did he pressure us into buying anything from him. That said, We did buy a coconut cocktail... More

I went with my fiancé this july (2014) hoping for something like the pictures I'd seen of a desert island beach. We weren't disappointed. It is unspoilt and pretty much deserted - just two youths selling fresh coconut drinks (they climbed up the trees and cut them down freshly for us) and another couple and us. After our massive disappointment... More

This is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. So romantic. Very picturesque beach, look like from exotic posters. The beach is very small but still it's so amazing. The water is super turquoise, tall coconut palm trees, cliffs around the beach. Not for swimming beacuse the water is pretty rough but definitely must see in Barbados when you... More

So beautiful! It was secluded and pristine, and it's a perfect beach for photo opps. We spent a small amount of time during our cruise stop on the island, and we are glad we did. We only dipped our feet in the water since it's not really safe for swimming. Definitely worth the trip even though it's about 30 minutes... More

Bottom bay is a secluded beach on the East Coast. The waves are strong so you have to be careful but crashing around in them is invigorating. The beach is secluded apart from non - intrusive coconut sellers, and a seemingly empty house perched on the cliff top overlooking the beach. You can get there by bus to Culpepper and... More

Great beach. Great waves for jumping in. Reminded me a bit of Watergate bay in Cornwall, though with lovely palm trees and a lot hotter. No sun loungers, just sun sea sand and the coconut drinks sellers. The drinks are great if pricy but there's no heavy sale pitch but if you want a drink they are fab. A real... More
