Set in the northernmost parish of St. Lucy, Little Bay is a quiet little beach that tends to remain unoccupied unless a tour group stops by. Those looking for an undeveloped spot to get away from the crowds will find it here.

Located in the eastern part of St. Lucy Parish, 1.9 miles southeast of Seaview, Little Bay is on the North edge of Barbados. You might want to drop by even if you aren't staying very close. If you plan to sunbathe or take a nap on a fairly secluded beach, you should check out Little Bay, a pretty, but less popular part of the coast.

Amenities and Ambiance

Surrounded by limestone hills, Little Bay has golden colored sand and deep blue waters.

Unfortunately, you won't find any public restrooms along this coastline.

If you happen to prefer beach days which bring visitors a serene enclave, then maybe head on over to Little Bay; it is hidden away within a less urban section of the region.
