“Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Dover beach has the best calming waters & great location to lime for the island breeze. You can also get the best Margaritas made with fresh Mangoes, as well as island delicatessens.

“Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

The beach is great. Lots of access to chairs and umbrellas. Kenny does half the beach, Charles the other. Both charge $10 US a day for two chairs and an umbrella. Well worth it if you are going to spend the day. You can arrange for long term rental for cheaper. Just ask! Very friendly and helpful. Lots of little huts for food and drink. 3-6 is happy hour each day. 2 for 1 daquari!

“Best beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Barbados is nothing but stunning beaches but this is one of the best. Shallow easy swimming and beautiful soft white sand. There are lots of food stands and beers are cheap. You can rent chairs and umbrellas for a very low price. It's also a nice stroll along the long crescent of Dover Beach.

“Strong waves”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

I didn't swim on this beach because of the strong waves and streams, specially if you have kids. The beach itself is nicem with trees and rocks... I prefered west coast beaches, with flat water.

“Swimming”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

The water is a bit rough but if you walk down the beach there are calmer spots. Not too much shade but the hotels do have beach chairs with umbrellas.
