    We arrived to the beach at morning and left afternoon. The beach was absolutely beautiful, clean surroundings and a car park area. We bought snowcone from a friendly vendor at the beach on our arrival. Beach chairs ,table and umbrella can be rented/purchase for use from the guys on the beach. We purchased food close by for lunch. The water was not too cold it was definitely crystal clear and refreshing. A few seaweed was seen below the water but not in large amounts. We participated in some water sport as well while on the beach. This is truly paradise, a must visit. Very relaxing and not excessively crowded. Easy to find as well .

    I love this beach as have facilities, toilets and several places to get food and drinks.

    Beds and umbrellas can be hired.

    Sea is calm and crystal clear.

    Also good to walk along the sand as a long stretch of beach about 2km.

    Attended my first ever cricket match when I received an invitation from Andre Harding to enjoy Barbados hospitality at its best when England visited Barbados last month for the Test Match against West Indies. Highlight of the day was being introduced to the legendary Sir Garfield Sobers..
    The Hospitality Suite was excellent - good service - good food and convivial company. Recommend a visit - worthwhile

    You have to get up early to see the horses between 6-7am but it’s well worth it for an experience of a lifetime. It’s amazing to see these beautiful sleek animals with their proud and caring stable hands. Man and beast in perfect harmony. What a privilege to watch these horses going for a swim or rolling around joyously in the sand! The horses clearly loved going in the sea. If you are lucky you will get the chance to jump up and join a horse in the sea. They don’t seem to mind although they would probably prefer being riderless so they can fully enjoy themselves. The stable hands were so friendly and obviously have some of the best jobs in the world looking after these athletic animals.

    The Savannah is an area of land about 1 mile from Bridgetown once used by the British forces station in Barbados as a parade ground. After the troops withdrew to Britain in1905, the property became devoted to sports of various kinds including rugby and soccer games.
    Where the British officers once raced their horses, in1845 became the home of The Garrison Savannah horse racecourse. Which is worth a visit if you are in this part of town and would like to take part in live gambling

    TIP: if you do not wish to pay the entry fee there is around the whole race track a small white fence making it very convenient to stand and watch the horses run by, perfect for those of you on a budget.
    I would apricate a thumbs up below if you found this review informative. Thank you

    This is a simple, but very informative tour. In fact, of all the tours we experienced while visiting the Caribbean, this is the one that stands out in my mind as the most interesting. I highly recommend this tour.

    Pleasant walk around the track lots of old buildings relating to the garrisons, geo Washington house, museum maybe a little run down but if you pick this up and drop it in London your looking at million pound properties, hopefully they don’t sell it off to private venture real estate companies who may restrict access just like what seems to be the case at Needsham point as that now sits inside the Hilton hotel complex, surely a national treasure lost? . I viewed the garrison on race day , all the locals were out with families having picnics and watching the races, the atmosphere was great with street cooking pulled pork and sweet corn , you can walk around the course at no cost and watch the racing for free.
    I shouldn’t need to mention this but it’s a safe area and the locals give you a smile and a nod the Bajans I’ve found are very friendly so don’t feel intimidated in this area or any other areas as in Bridgetown as they are sadly not very touristy whilst I was there as most tourist must just stayed in there gated hotels, but on that there is a plus your seeing the locals going about there daily life with out hoards of tourists taking over and pushing out the locals so you get a cultural experience. As with any areas be street wise and don’t carry what you can’t afford to lose no different then just walking around Manchester or London or visiting big city.
    Get out and about and experience the people …go in local shops eat in small establishments and get talking and interacting with the locals..

    Tucked away beach with plenty of free parking. A hidden unspoilt gem. Quiet with few people around. Snorkelling not great but a sandy beach and sandy underwater. La Cabane beach restaurant alongside.

    Visiting the museum was a very enlightening experience. We learnt a lot of the history of Barbados. I realised that I didn't know as much about Barbados as I thought. Worth a visit.

    Golden sands and fabulous water lapping the shores. What more could you want? My wife and I decided to visit the beach for a second time when stopping off in the area from our cruise of the Caribbean and really enjoyed the time spent there. Unfortunately, probably because of the lockdown, several of the beach side bars have closed and have not reopened since we were last there, just over two years ago, but still it was a delight to visit and walk the golden sand again.

    Walking over the Chamberlain Bridge, we crossed National Heroes Square (Nelson square), to visit the Parliament Building with its lovely Clock tower, Museum, and National Heroes Gallery.
    Barbados Parliament has the third-oldest parliamentary body in the English-speaking world, dating from 1639, second only to Britain and Bermuda.
    The original building was built in 1640 but was burned to the ground in the Bridgetown fire of 1668. Today’s building was completed in 1874 and has been the meeting place for both chambers of Parliament since then. The Stained-glass windows in the east buildings date back to Queen Victoria's time and show many statesmen, including Oliver Cromwell for some strange reason.
    The clock and bells were made in England and designed to run for eight days, the pendulum is 14 feet long and dials are made of copper and are 7 feet in diameter, all its wheels are made of very hard gunmetal, and it was all installed by a local Barbadian firm originally in the east side building, but due to its unstable foundations, was moved off in 1886 to its present position.
    Unfortunately the day we tried to visit it was closed to the public.

    TIP: If you get a chance check out the museum and clock tower.
