My family and I visited this beach in November. The boys did a glass bottom boat tour and swam with the turtles they loved it!! Harbor Lights beach restaurant is right there on the beach and their food is terrific! Great place!

Excellent place to spend a day on the beach while on Barbados. Lots of bars and restaurants that rent chairs and umbrellas and offer great activities. The water is as clear as bath water with easy entry into the water. If you stop in Barbados...More

This is my go to spot, love this beach. Water is great for swimming, not too rough, sand is perfect. There is action around if you want to partake in some water activities and peaceful spots if you just want to get away and relax.

We entered the beach through harbor lights and got a chair and umbrella. The beach is beautiful, the sand is soft and harbor lights offered some good food and drinks.

A great beach, with snorkelling to be had in the sea and early warning flags in either red or yellow, with plenty of indications as to the conditions. Plenty of facilities, including sun beds, parasols and palm trees acting as natural shade!
