Coconuts for sale?

Do any of the beaches in Barbados have vendors that sell coconuts with straws?

not really on the beaches, that I've been on, but you will find coconut vendors , mostly on Saturdays in the Warrens Area on the Highway selling coconut water.. they will cut the coconuts and put the water in 2 liter jugs for you. there is someone not far from the beach near Accra, just a little inland, from Coconut Walk and Bubbas sports bar, that I've seen with coconuts as well.. again, Saturday mornings mostly.

where are you staying?? maybe the hotel or someone in that area can advise

When we visited Bottom Bay there was a guy on the beach doing fresh coconuts, you could either just have the coconut milk or a potent cocktail served in the shell! Not sure if he's there all the time though.

On every visit to Bottom Bay the guy selling the coconuts has always been there. Both alcoholic and non alcoholic versions were very nice.

Crane beach too but not sure how much rum is in them?

In the old days one of the guys used to climb the trees to recover a fresh coconut. Now I think he might be recycling the coconuts which puts me off!

I'm going to be staying at Sea Breeze hotel. Where would be closest for me to get a coconut with a straw? :-)

2 years ago a guy in front of Southern Palms ran up a palm tree, cut the coconuts down and filled them with a delicious cocktail. I made my husband watch over him to see what he was putting in them,genuine spirits and totally delicious. About 10bds.
