We were on a cruise and took a taxi. The driver asked exactly where on the beach - we told her close to public restrooms/showers and it seemed to be the perfect spot for us. Some one else in the taxi wanted full service and...More
Beautiful white sand beach. Always try to visit when I’m in Barbados. Tend to go to the Boatyard for the day to lounge on the sand. Great snorkelling with turtles and around a couple of shipwrecks too.
Been here a few times over the few decades and it changes little. A little obscure to get to then met a large, deep expanse of golden sand. It is within the old colonial sugar port of Bridgetown ad the buildings and warehouses provide the...More
This is arguably the best beach in Barbados, with a huge expanse of beautiful sand, ridiculously clear water, and hot hot sun! I love it so much and went for a morning and evening swim the entire time I was there. There are all sorts...More
Very busy at the north end during the day when the cruise ship passengers are ashore. Much quieter at the south end. A number of beach restaurants. Lovely white sand and generally calm waters with a few rollers for surfing in the south.
After 25 + cruises, most spent in the Caribbean, this is my favourite beach, anywhere, including Hawaii and Cancun.
We didn’t explore anywhere else in Bridgetown because we’ve been to Barbados almost annually since 1998.
We try to avoid the crowds, have been going to...More
Beautiful stunning views with the finest white sand.
Calm water and even my mother could go in there.
There are a lot of restaurants and there is the Pirates Cave and the Harbour lights.
The Hilton hotel is at the end and they will start...More
The entry above about Sharkys is so true! It is well worth the money. You can use a swing on the pier that is so fun along with the trampolines and the boat. Plus the food and drinks were very good. Also, a very helpful... More

Can someone tell me more about paddle barbados? Should we take the bus to Carlisle Bay and ask when we arrive? Should we book thru the resort? What are the prices? Staying at Couples Barbados in December.

Pretty sure you need to book so I would definitely do that in advance.
Nevis or Antigua? (3 Replies)
With toddlers? Considering Nisbet or Carlisle Bay in Antigua. Feb 2014. Want a beautiful beach, calm water, and laid back luxury. Anyone been to both? One better suited for toddlers? We dont use kids clubs - just need it to be safe, clean, easy access to beach. Also, is travel into Nevis cumbersome? (Antigua is direct flight from Miami). TIA!

Normally you'll find the water calmer and the drop-off as you enter much more gradual at Carlisle Bay than at the Four Seasons. Both are safe resorts, very clean and offer easy access to the beach. As for being "toddle friendly" and having other amenities and luxuries, both resorts are on a par with each other.

Best beach with calm water for swimming (8 Replies)
Hi all, I'm planning to visit Barbados next May and would like peoples opinion on the best beach on the west coast. I have been looking at staying near Mullins beach and have read good reviews about it but some say it is noisy and busy. Then I read about Carlisle bay and Paynes bay. I'm not looking to stay in an expensive resort I was looking at staying 5 nights maybe in Legend garden condos. Any advice on the best beach will be great. Thank you

Best beach on the west coast is Alleynes - near enough to where you are staying.... nice beach bars Jujus and Santis - by Lonestar for a fab evening dining upscale - the main hotel on that beach is Fairmont Royal Pavilion. For a quiet beach - Gibbes also close to Mullins
