Beautiful bay
Jan 2021
The water there is so calm and warm. Beautiful place to hang out. The beach is really deep, which is great compared to a lot of other shallow beaches on the island.

Beach Day
Feb 2021 • Couples
Super soft sand, really clean too!
X 2 beds and umbrella : 30 bajan.
Nice and calm sea too and easy to walk into the sea where other beaches can be quite uneven on the sea bed.
Shame there wasn't alot of food options around.
Also has a car park directly at the entrance with toilets and showers.
Also you can get WiFi free on the beach.

Great chance of seeing sea turtles
Dec 2020
Very nice clean beach, clear water, soft sand. Snorkeling here offers a good chance of swimming with sea turtles and frequently seeing them pop their heads up for a breath of air.

Snorkel to the sunken ship - no tour needed
Jan 2021 • Family
We heard so many people rave about the tour to “snorkel at the sunken ship” and “swim with the turtles”. But with 4 in our family, tours get pricey.

We brought our own snorkel gear. If you set out directly towards the horizon from the yellow lifeguard stand furthest to the south along the coastal side of the beach (Pebbles Beach), you’ll reach the ship at a round white buoy. It’s about a 15-20 min swim (use flippers if possible!), but not a hard swim as there’s very little current.

No photos unfortunately (we don’t have an underwater camera!) but definitely a not to miss experience! Tons of coral on the boat and huge schools of colorful fishes and we also saw tons of turtles!

At first sight, I thought this place had to be photoshopped!
Nov 2020
Carlisle Bay is very beautiful, from the beach and also when on the water and snorkeling. Do yourself a favor and do not miss this experience!
