“Best Beach for Chillin'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

Love this place. Our favourite beach on the Island, been so many times! Sand and water are just perfect. Great swimming and snorkelling on the reef, so many fish including some rare ones. Can see turtles off the beach if you swim out to the visiting catamarans, just be prepared for a tiring swim back. Ryan does the beach chairs at the #1 Sandy Land end and is a really cool guy who will look after you and give you a good deal. Visit at Christmas and see the Celebs showing off or July and have the beach to yourself! Coconutz beach bar currently closed so take a cool box or lunch off the beach.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

This is a perfect beach setting and also a place to go to meet the local people. This is truly Barbados and you can even go on the bus!

“Excellent beach with calm waters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Paynes Bay beach was just perfect. The water was clear, calm, and the beach was clean. Not a lot of people and the locals were nice. I practically had a whole section all to myself. I paid about 10 US for a beach chair with umbrella and the weather was just perfect as well. So sight of Jelly fish, just jumping fish and turtles! Spent several hours in the water, it was nice and cozy. Not too deep, just right.

“Paradise ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

This beach was just lovely! Not crowded at all and had lovely sand with clear, calm waters to swim in. There were the occasional local selling boat trips etc but were very polite and did not pester you if you weren't interested. Worth walking right around and visiting the small fish market opposite end away from Holetown as it is very pretty that side and sells fish at a great price! This beach is easily accessed as is on the bus route.
