“The most beautiful beach I have ever been on”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Bottom Bay is where we stayed on the island. Simply breathtaking, when you walk onto this beach for the first time you will really know you are in paradise.
White sand, beautiful palms, coconuts and magical waves of the turquoise sea are the only things you can find there. Strong, strong waves. Not too many people around (none, sometimes), no chairs, no hawkers, nothing but sand, beautiful turquoise sea, and sunshine! Enjoy....
It is hard to imagine that it is real and you are actually standing by such natural beauty. We couldn't take enough pictures.

“Beautiful secluded beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

Best beach we've visited on or 5 island Caribbean cruise! Glad I read the reviews on here, otherwise we would've missed it.
We got a driver to take us to Hunte's Garden and Bottom Bay because they're both not on the typical tours. $60 for 2 round trip from the cruise terminal, our driver waited as we took our time at each location. Or driver didn't even know where the beach's entrance was! Good thing we had GPS on our phone to direct him. It was paradise as we decended the steps onto the pristine beach. There were 13 people total early afternoon! One vendor selling coconut juice and renting chairs - both $5 each.

Be careful, the waves are very strong!
We'll definitly return, just hope it remains a hidden paradise.

“Beautiful unspoilt bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Wonderful unspoilt place to visit. Loved watching the sand crabs on the beach and the crashing waves.

“Gorgeous spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

A must see beach with soaring coral cliffs. Dangerous for swimming though. Bring a picnic and just watch the rollers.

“another natural beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Another beautiful natural beach in Barbados, beware of the under currents as a frequent visitor I have witnessed some near misses, swimmers must be strong if the sea is choppy.
