Foul Bay

An almost deserted paradise can be found in Foul Bay. This beautiful beach is located next to a forest and impresses with white powder sand, deep blue water and a quiet atmosphere. Only swimming is impossible here due to the strong current.

Bath Beach

A popular beach among locals is Bath Beach. On the east coast of Barbados there is no other beach that is suitable for swimming. Due to its large reef in front of it, this beach seems particularly protected. Picnic benches invite you to have a small snack and the beach also scores with its facilities with sanitary facilities.

Bottom Bay
