Stopped at The Boatyard during our Carnival Cruise back in September. This was one of the BEST beaches I have EVER been to. From the welcoming staff, to the amazing food, this place was the best stop of our trip. The owner did a wonderful job of keeping his beach free of the peddlers, making the stay more enjoyable. The water was amazing, and the rope swing was fun! It was only $12 to get in, which included a welcome drink, chairs/umbrellas and cab ride back. Would go back in a heartbeat!

I came here twice during my stay in Barbados. The beach is simply beautiful with clear waters, no seaweed, and white sandy beaches. One small fee and you get a chair, umbrella and a credit towards food & drink. The food is expensive, but some dishes are worth the price. They also have a happy hour a few times a day. I would suggest a locker storage so that guests have somewhere to store their valuables while at the beach.

This is a great beach to head for. Jumped of our ship "ORIANA" and grabbed a taxi for the short ride to THE BOATYARD. Brilliant sunshine, soft white sand, crystal clear warm water, jet skis, buckets of ice cold beer, good food, great company and Caribbean music. What more can you ask for!! Nearest thing to Heaven!! Can't wait to return!!

The Boatyard is a short taxi ride from the cruise pier. The admission to the boat yard includes use of the beach, chairs, umbrella, and use of all the water trampolines and the rope swing as well as the taxi ride back to the boat at your convenience. The drinks were good and the atmosphere great! My husband and I spent the day there with our 4 kids ages 4(twins), 10, and 13. This was by far the kids favorite thing that we did the whole cruise. The little ones loved the beach and the trampolines and the older kids loved the trampoline and the rope swing. All in all this was money well spent and if we ever go back to Barbados we will definitely spend our day at the Boatyard again!

You are charged an admission fee, and its worth it, we were on a cruise and you get a free taxi back to the ship when you go here, you get your sunbeds and parasol which they come along and dig into the sand for you, there is a bar that does food, They call everyone round the bar every so often and pour drinks into your mouth so funny. you can buy a ice bucket of beer which is great to keep your beer cold whilst sunbathing. There is free Wi-Fi in one area. There is somewhere to change. They have a shop where you can buy Boatyard T Shirts.
