Although its what you have always dreamed of when you actually lie on this beach its very annoying when guys that sell coconuts and girls that sell jewls come up to you. maybe im just nervous but it did spoil it a little bit.

Nicely positioned, not too busy so spacious, you are not on top of other people, having plenty of space. It was kept clean and tidy by the hotel staff The sea was rather rough so swimming was not recommended, the red flag was on show most of our stay. The sea was turquoise and just amazing to look at.

Beaches are an individual taste.. For me, the sea was perfect and the sand just right.. People of course make it all and we had no problems. Loved every minute. Got all the local beachy things like catamarans, kayaks, banana boats etc but we opted for lazing and swimming.. You have to rent umbrellas and chairs like everywhere else., around... More

so beautiful, picturesque and worth going back too, I loved the people who worked on the beach they were very kind and warm spirited and if you rent an umbrella/chair from Kenny and his team they are amazing!!

This beach is often rated one of the best in Barbados and I can see why: Beautiful white sand, clear turquoise waters and plenty of room. It's larger than the couple of other beaches we visited in Barbados, so if you're willing to forgo a chair/umbrella, you can easily find some space to yourself. Also there are a lot of... More

We stayed at the Infinity on the Beach and this beach was outside our hotel. Chairs are included if you stay there and for $5 an umbrella can be rented. Umbrellas are a must since both sun and rain storms pop up through the day.

Laid back, friendly place. Some good places to eat, and a few small shops. I especially liked Charles water-sports/surf hire right on beach: the left-hand side of the beach is nice for surfing (small reefbreak) , and I have some excellent surf lessons from Chris (based at Charles watersports).

The beach is beautiful, but some of the vendors stop you and try to rip you off. Just be careful and keep your wits about you
