Great family day out
Oct 2021 • Family
Great place to visit.
Very good value for money with money back to spend at the bar or restaurant.
Beach is perfect and they set you some nice sunbeds with umbrellas.
Obstacles and rope swing into sea are great fun.
Lockers and life jackets available to use with a deposit.
Snorkelling trip included with the price and get to see a ship wreck and loads of turtles.
Has its own car park so parking easy.
Highly recommend for a day out with the family.

Great find!
Oct 2021 • Family
Easy to get get too. We were greeted by a friendly lady called shelly, she told us everything and we were taken to a great spot on the beach. The water is like a swimming pool. The kids loved the rope swing and inflatables in the sea. Included in the admission price was a boat trip to swim with turtles and swim to the shop wreck. Charlie and Charlie took us out and we saw many turtles and the ship wreck was phenomenal. So many lovely fish. Clear waters. They were both very informative. Kids again loved it. Food was also included in the price with drinks. We both had flying fish sandwiches and were delicious. Enjoyed the cold beers served too. Everyone was super friendly and was an awesome atmosphere. Service on the beach was second to none. If not a strong swimmer, don't worry as they put you on top of the ship wreck and life jackets included. This was a great day out for us and the children aged 12 and 14. Definitely will return.

Bar and grill
Sep 2021
Used the bar/restaurant while waiting for a dive trip. Helpful staff food and drinks ok no problem at all with the service.
Parking at the front and rear. Not sure on the prices of the snorkel trips but plenty booking to go on them and all coming back smiling.

Experience of a lifetime.
Aug 2021
Such a great day out! We paid $180 BBD for 3 Adult tickets and received £120 BBD back on a card which enabled us to purchase refreshments and meals without carrying cash in the facility.

Amongst the beautiful views, white sands, and calm sea. There were plenty sunbeds and parasols which a member of staff erected wherever you wished to sit. There was also a trampoline in the ocean, and an inflatable climbing frame. Not to mention a rope swing, and areas to jump into the see from height.

You also have the opportunity to go on a snorkelling trip which was included in the admission price. This trip was very well organised and Covid safe. All participants were required to wear a facemask unless in the sea. All snorkels were sanitised in front of swimmers. We visited a turtle area, where we could swim in close proximity to the beautiful creatures. Then we sailed to a ship wreck where we again could snorkel over the area.

Would definitely recommend this establishment.

Ridiculously slow service and rude staff
Aug 2021 • Friends
Most unhappy, rude and inept staff. Slow service. Such a shame - this place used to be so nice. Wouldn’t recommend the boatyard unless you’re ok waiting 30 minutes to order a drink.

Great beach day
Aug 2021 • Friends
Good value for money, nice place to spend a beach day!

$60 BBD entry but $45 you get back to spend on food and drinks! In addition to use of sun beds and umbrellas, showers etc. They also provide a snorkelling tour which is included in the entry which we thought was a great addition to the day!

We encountered one unfriendly member of staff but the rest were great. They require you to wear a mask when walking around the restaurant and to the bathrooms which is easy. Temp check required on entry as well.

The West Side Scuba centre is also based at The Boatyard and they are great! If you are looking to book any scuba diving or a Padi courses I highly recommend them!

We went here after being recommended to the venue. We had great service and the kids enjoyed the water activities. The two Charlies on the boat trip were great, very helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend a day trip here!
