This beach was clean, the sea clear and the waves were good enough to provide fun for diving through or body boarding. During the time we stayed in this area we did have several days when a large quantity of seaweed washed on to the beach but it went away again and the beach was once more lovely. I would... More

The week we happened to go to Barbados, the ocean was brown. Apparently this happens from time to time so you might want to call ahead to see the status. Naturally, the day we left it was turquoise water.....

Not the best looking beach in Barbados. Windy because it is not on West Coast and swimming is not easy

I mean its a beach, what's not to like. That being said the water was nicely warm and there is only one rocky outcrop. Current can be strong so you'll want to stay close to shore. I can't fault it really. Guy offered me 420 (I declined) which is great and its a short walk from the main road and... More

We spent some time here. It was super quiet, and we were the only one's swimming. The waves are small, but fun enough to play in. Not dangerous. We enjoyed our time here.

Title about says it all, a short burst of beach here, but if you get a chance, the Bougainvillea Resort is right here, gorgeous little visit.

Stunning Maxwell beach lies just along from Oistins, always uncrowded and pretty clean. Beautiful white sand with stunning gentle waves cascading down. not once bothered by beach sellers and the like.
