The gorgeous beaches in Barbados are touted by locals as some of the most-loved attractions that you'll find on the island. Visitors love that this property is located directly on the waterfront, so you won't need to go very far to experience first hand what makes the area such a popular vacation destination. This property is not located within the more crowded areas of Barbados, which means those staying at this location oftentimes find that the beach is fairly empty, giving them the chance to enjoy a relaxing nap or sun-tanning session in the sand.
Of course, since Almond Beach Village is located on Heywoods Beach, hanging out at the beach is a popular pastime here. Heywoods Beach boasts calm, turquoise waters and immaculate golden sand perfect for swimming and snorkeling. A nearby reef makes the area excellent for exploration, as well as an ideal spot for those looking for smaller pools to wade in.
