Pebbles Beach is a family friendly locale, complete with picnic benches, a play ground for young children, and life gaurds on duty.

Located a few hundred yards southeast of downtown Bridgetown, Pebbles Beach is on the South coast of Barbados. You might want to drop by whether or not you are staying particularly close by. Vacationers who prefer to walk rather than drive around Barbados will like how easy it is to reach Pebbles Beach. There are so many things to do in the area, as this beach isn't far from the center of the city's action.

How to Access The Beach
Set on the south coast, Pebbles Beach is located nearby the George Washington House and Bayview Hospital. Parking can be found at the junction of Bay Street and Beckles Road.

Amenities and Ambiance

Blindingly white sand and turquoise waters typify this Barbados beach.

Those who want to dine by the water will appreciate that there are picnic tables available.

Unfortunately, restrooms will not be available here, but you may be able to find facilities at a nearby business.

Even so, try to remember that while there are at least one or two comforts on-site at Pebbles Beach, it is found within an active, busy area. With that in mind, if for you the amenities are a crucial feature, it is a good motivator to come in the morning before most of the other people show up or perhaps try a beach elsewhere. If you do not, it's possible you may not take advantage of all the amenities which Pebbles Beach offers.
