Clear waters that stretch out to the horizon and somewhere off in the distance seem to blend into the sky can be seen from the coast of Bridgetown.  Here the beaches often feature calm waters but busy sands, filled with cruise ship passengers and tourists who when they aren't swimming enjoy sitting on a blanket and watching the colorful fishing boats and yacht sailing out to sea.  

The Area's Beaches

Accra Beach

A local beach where snorkeling is an option is Accra Beach. The Accra Beach Hotel and Resort occupies a large area leading up to the beach, though public access is available off of Highway 7. Parking is available along Highway 7, as well as on the smaller road east of the beach.

Another alternative that beach-goers can consider is Drill Hall Beach. The beach is accessible to both pedestrians and vehicles. Drivers should look for car park signs off of Highway 7.

Carlisle Bay: Carlisle Bay's beach area enjoys the calm waters of the bay and the close proximity to the capital city. Tropical foliage dots the landscape, though there is little shade to be had when compared to other beaches.
