This beach is past ‘wellhouse’. We took the car but is also accessible by bus with a little walk. You go down about 40 steps to get to the beach. There are rentable loungers there and a guy sells drinks out of coconut’s. The sea...More

During our stay in Barbados we very much wanted to visit Bottom Bay. We had been there once before, 22 years ago, and at the time we were struck by its beauty; and so we wanted to revisit it on this trip. I remember it...More

I thought really hard about posting this as the beach is probably the most authentic on the island and well worth a visit- but don’t all go at once and spoil the peace!!

This is the most beautiful place I’ve seen!!! So quiet and tranquil! Perfect place to sunbathe! Hardly anyone visits here as there are no toilets, sun beds, bar or restaurant but don’t let that stop you! Take your own food and water. There is a...More

First visit to the Caribbean and i wanted to find THE beach. Well this is it!! Perfect, water, sand, palm trees. There are beach vendors but they are polite lads just doing a job, absolutely no hassle and what a workplace. Loved it.

Bottoms bay is my favorite beach in Barbados. The view from up top where you park is priceless. If you walk to the right of the beach, you can see some massive waves crashing into the land and natural hole formations.

It definitely pays to travel a little and avoid the crowds. We visited late November so perhaps within the low season but had the beach to ourselves. It's a great beach, and as mentioned too rough for swimming. I saw an eagle ray jump out...More

The road is kind of off-road and really rough yet you drive literally through residential areas until you make it to a small parking "lot" on the rocks/dirt (can't miss it). I don't recall the signs, we used the google maps... More

i would look into Sapphire Beach condos. We just stayed there and we know the owners of a few condos. Very safe, Guards on duty, gated. Nice restaurants very close. Feel free to ask me for more details.

Its a bit in the middle of nowhere so you need a car and there are no bars or restaurants near by. Being on the beach alone, although seemed safe, may be a little daunting for a lady alone, but the locals and beach sellers... More
