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.

Accra Beach

If you love to snorkel, a location worth considering is Accra Beach. Accra Beach, also known as Rockley Beach, is surrounded by palm trees and features incredible turquoise waters. Tucked behind a variety of restaurants, beach bars, and resorts, this southern Barbados beach is a popular location for vacationers.

Another alternative to consider is Drill Hall Beach. Drill Hall Beach is fairly large and features pink sand and lush foliage. The beautiful blue sea is perfect for catching waves on a boogie or surf board, with the active waves created by the shallow reef located shortly off the coast. West of the beach is the famous Needhams Point, while the Garrison lies farther inland.

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.
