There are so many better, quieter beaches in Barbados than Dover and now that Sandals has arrived it's way too busy and commercial.

Rented unit 106 (Amikka) at Sapphire Beach condo's which is a gated facility with direct access onto Dover beach. Spent many days lazing on the beach with a couple of beds, an umbrella and plentiful supply of Carib cold beers !!

Like most of the beaches here on the South coast, it's so relaxing just strolling and paddling along, and popping up to sample one of the many umshops and restaurants around!

White sandy beach with calm and warm blue turquoise water. A small snack bar tucked hidden in a corner of the beach made it perfect for 10 days of pure paradise.

This is my favorite beach in Barbados. Water sports available, jet ski guy is very friendly and safe. Water is calm, blue, and beautiful. Tons of hotels and food options available. Beach chairs and umbrellas available for a fee and beach access via most hotels.

This beach was very clean, and not too busy. There are jet skis available as well as chairs/loungers. There are places to eat nearby. I didn't get any locals try to sell me stuff or bother me. There are turtles that swim just off shore daily, and it was good to sit and watch them surface every so often.

Nice wide and spacious beach with soft, white sand. Very long with lots of room to spread out. There is lots of shade due to the palm trees. There are beach chairs for rent at the various entrances. The water is fairly calm, with small waves, so it's not very rough and good for kids. Our 1 1/2 year old... More
