  • Beaches are ok but very crowded as there are a lot of apartments and hotels on the stretch of sand. We thought the area was quite touristy and there were much nicer beaches further up the west coast.....  more

  • WOW effect!! expecially if you love free diving and snorkeling... There are 3 different shipwrecks less than 100m from the beach. You can easily find them looking where are all the people from organized tours. If you are able to take deep breath, take it and enjoy the inside of shipwreck!! there're a lot of in&out passages
  • Lovely stretch of sandy beach and clear water, perfect for swimming and sunbathing.
  • This is the best beach in Barbados, the water is crystal clear and there's plenty of activity. One of my favorite stop offs when I'm on my Ebike
  • Heaven on earth, most beautiful beach in Barbados!
  • The day we visited the water was a but rough, nevertheless, always a great visit, especially when.Inhsbr a Reuben's Beach Bar rumpunch in hand.
