Foul Bay, Saint Philip Parish

4.1
#3 of 8 in Parks in Saint Philip Parish
Head off the beaten track to Foul Bay, which despite its name charms with a scenic white sandy beach. The pristine, often deserted stretch of coastline is bordered by tropical perennials and palms, and bookended by two rugged points. Lounge in the natural shade of the trees, or get active on the water. Note that the swells in the bay lend themselves better to activities like bodyboarding than swimming. The beach has no facilities, so bring whatever you need--but leave valuables at home, as theft has been reported.

  • Beautiful sunsets. Sometimes the seaweed can be a bit much. Nice place for a picnic but you must bring everything. There are no shops or resturants for a few miles. The sea is rough so unless you are a very capable swimmer I would only let you feet get wet. Enjoy the view, breeze and company of friends or family.
  • Best beach in Barbados. Beautiful and unspoilt. Swim with caution.
  • Lovely beach but I don't recommended bathing.
  • It is beautiful, quiet and relaxing. The water is deep and rough and there is no lifeguard .
