The inviting beaches in Barbados are considered the most alluring attractions in the region.
Many guests are excited to learn that this property is on the water, so you won't need to go out of your way to see one of the most naturally beautiful features of the area. This particular site is located outside of the more crowded areas of Barbados, meaning guests here will oftentimes have the beach to themselves, allowing them to enjoy a relaxing nap or sun-tanning session in the sand.
Of course, since Almond Beach Village is located directly on Heywoods Beach, spending time at the shore is one of the main attractions here. Heywoods Beach boasts calm, turquoise waters and immaculate golden sand perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
