Absolutely fantastic, clean beach, one of the most beautiful on the west coast of Barbados! Go try to catch the sea turtles coming out of the water at night!

lovely but small, on part is pretty secluded and you can have most of the beach to yourself. but all in all it was amazing. waves cld be smoother. but you have to go up a bit to the west beach for smoother beaches...

Bougainvillea beach resort is on this beach. Just lovely; white soft sand, blue waters. Better than sandy Lane beach!

Our beach early morning work outs followed by a swim. So calm and great for an easy swim. it is so quiet at times you feel like your shipwrecked did not see Tom Hanks though or the DHL plane but there was a football. Strange!

This beach is quite isolated the waves can be a little rough here not ideal for small kids. The sand is lovely. Turtles sometimes seen here.

White sand, palm trees and calm sea while I was there, all in all, a nice place to be!!. At the time of my visit, the sea was so warm that once in, you wanted to stay in!!.

By far the best beach on the whole island. I will never forget this place. Our hotel was right on this beach and we certainly made the right choice in Butterfly Beach Hotel.

Sand so white and clean you never want to leave. A truly relaxing time. Don't give this a miss on your next trip.
