Barbados: Beach Guide


Barbados is an island nation located in the Lesser Antilles, flanked by the South American and the Caribbean Plates. Because of its ideal location in the Atlantic Ocean, it is not surprising the island has some of the most stunning beaches in the world along its long stretches of coastline. Tourists who want to know which beaches to visit when coming to the island should check out the following suggestions. Staying in any of the fabulous Barbados boutique hotels not only offers easy access to these gorgeous beaches, but also turns a holiday from just laid-back to luxurious.

Silver Sands Beach

Certainly living up to its name is Silver Sands Beach, with fine white sand that seems to glitter in the warm Barbadian sun. Known for its impressive waves, Silver Sands is a famous destination worldwide for surfing. Many tourists come to Silver Sands beach just to windsurf, kite surf, or participate in the annual Waterman Festival held in February. It is located along the south coast of Barbados – boutique hotels here will place you in a true tropical playground. There is also a small park where children can play, as well as picnic benches ideal for family picnics – an ideal way to spend a relaxing day at the beach.

Bottom Bay Beach

For tourists who want to go somewhere a little more secluded, Bottom Bay Beach, located on the southeast coast of the island, is the perfect spot. Partly hidden by the high coral cliffs, Bottom Bay Beach offers a stunning view of the beach’s south shore and its unique pink sand. Palm trees fringe the stretch of the beach, making Bottom Bay a peaceful and idyllic spot to unwind in Barbados; boutique hotels can be found nearby, so you can have your choice of lazing by the pool or sunbathing on the sand. But apart from the scenery and ambience, what makes Bottom Bay such a great beach destination is that it is just walking distance from the historic Sam Lord’s Castle, an expansive Georgian mansion built in 1820.

Bath Beach

While there are hundreds of beautiful beaches on the island, arguably the most popular at which to swim is Bath Beach. Located on the Atlantic Coast, Bath Beach is very calm and has minimal waves, making it an ideal place for small children to swim as long as properly supervised by adults. Tourists staying at Barbados boutique hotels within driving distance won’t have a problem with parking at Bath Beach. The area also has ample picnic spots and changing rooms, but one of its main features is a small waterfall just north of the coastline.
