  • Great atmosphere, drinks, and people. Lots of water activities you can do so spending a day here is never boring. Wasn't crowded at all when my family went, the earlier you come the better chance you have of getting a good chair and umbrella spot. No rocks at all in the water or shore, just that beautiful white sand. One of the best beaches I've ever been to.
  • A great place to spend the day. Great atmosphere, beautiful beach with lovely white sand. Kids had great fun too out on the water trampoline inflatables etc entrance includes sunbed, beer or cocktail a snorkeling trip to the shipwreck to swim amongst the lovely fish & if it you're lucky turtles too & the Minibus back. Would highly recommend.
  • This is by far the best beach on the island if you're looking for fun and great prices! They have sun loungers, water trampolines, umbrellas, restrooms, food, drinks, a rope swing into the ocean and much more. I had a very enjoyable day here!
  • This is the best deal on the beach! $20 admission gets you a chair, a drink (including beer), use of all facilities/pier/water rafts, a snorkel trip to see turtles & a shipwreck, and a ride back to the cruise ship port! The staff is incredibly nice and friendly, and the facilities are very clean. I recommend getting there early, because they will sell out of chairs if it gets too full! A must do in Bridgetown!
  • Was a great time. $20 cover, but that comes with a free drink and shuttle ride back to the cruise port. They also have lots of beach chairs and umbrellas to relax in the sand or play in the waves!
