Reviewed October 7, 2012

One of the most beautiful and seculded beaches on the island. Not great for its swimming but it is worth the visit for the scenery.

“One of the best beaches in Barbados”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Beautiful beach. Easy to get to. The day that we went there were very few people there. When we went- there were not chairs or umbrellas to rent- so if you don't mind just sitting on a beach chair and enjoying the beach- this is a nice place.

“Best Barbadian beaches”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Bottom bay along with Foul bay are possibly the best beaches on Barbados. Bottom bay combines perfect white sand and amazing turquoise sea. Palm trees fringe the beach providing shade. For those less able bodied access is via steps, 52 I believe! Access is via a small lane which seems to be going nowhere until you arrive at a small car park. Well worth searching out. As this is the Alantic the waves and undertow can be severe-not recommended for less than strong swimmers. Even if you don't swim here take you camera as you will not be dissapointed.

“The best beach but rough sea”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

Palm trees growing out the sand? Yes please. The sea is the east Atlantic and is very rough so not for weak swimmers but the beach more than makes up for it.

“Best beach in Babrados!”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Bottom beach is simply amazing! White sand, beautiful palms, coconuts and magical waves of the turquoise sea are the only things you can find there. There are not so many tourists or other people, so you can enjoy your time swimming in the waves or relaxing under a palm..... my favourite beach in Barbados!
