Barbados beaches are out-of-this-world
Walking on the powdery sand as the ocean’s whitewash tickles your toes is like being transported to an untouched new world. Paynes Bay, one of island’s most scenic west coast beaches, is highly rated by locals as one of the best swimming spots for serenity, sea and sand. You can even enjoy watersports like jet ski, sea bobs, paddleboarding, glass bottom boats or opt for relaxing family time.
If adventure is more your style, surfing world-class barrels on the rugged eastern coastline is a thrill. Bathsheba and Cattlewash give you spectacular views of the famed Scotland District, giant boulders parked offshore and cool rock pools at low tide. Unique geological features like these make the east coast truly special.
From boulders on beaches to jet skis rippling across the glassy sea, Barbados is home to some of the most breathtakingly beautiful beaches. And, thanks to Apes Hill’s elevated position bestride the west and the east, you can easily pop down to the sandy Barbados beaches on either edge of the island.
