White sands, green sea, very few people, mostly locals. Not a place for weak swimmers or those who do not like waves. Be carreful of the rips

“Do not be put off by the name, it is paradise!!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

I was almost reluctant to travel to Foul Bay due to the name but believe me this is an amazing bay and the beach is like paradise, golden sand with excellent shade in the trees if needed. This was voted best beach by all 4 of us after visiting many during our two week stay. Trust me you will not be dissapointed but take your refreshments with you, if not there is a petrol station in St Martin that does great food for lunch.

“Favorite beach in Barbados”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This beach was truly beautiful. It is indeed a little hard to find, but we thought it was much prettier than Bottom Bay. If you are wanting full service amenities, go to the somewhat nearby Crane Hotel Beach but this one is prettier. Long beach, with a beautiful curve. When we were there, the water was not very rough and so could be entered (though with caution). Really worth a visit, even if just for a picture and a nice balance to the look of the beaches on the West Coast.

hard to find but well worth it, its very wild the waves rearly crash onto the beach. not safe for swimming, but trees are good for having a picnic under and just chilling for a while

“My favorite beach in Barbados”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

Just south of the Crane, you'll have a long stretch of epic scenery all to yourself! Its the Crane without the Crane (You'll know what I mean when you go). When you're here it almost looks like your in southeast asia as the cliffs are so unique. There is no other beach that looks like Foul Bay. You can bus here (via Sam Lords route) and easily drive as well. Theres even steps that go up the northern side of the beach where you can view the entire bay. Its about 3/4 long stretch of the whitest sand you'll ever see. By far my favorite beach in Barbados!! If you want a beach like Crane Beach, but don't want people hackeling you to rent their beach umbrellas, then make you way south as its literally right around the corner from the crane. Highly recommend you grab something to eat or drink at the Crane Palms which about a 10min walk from Foul (GREAT PRICES TOO).
