Speightstown's Mullins Beach

If you want to snorkel, a beach worth considering is Gibbs Beach. The beach is accessible for pedestrians and vehicles. Drivers can follow Highway 1B down the west coast, as the beach lies shortly off the highway, south of Mullins Beach.

Another good choice for those who enjoy snorkeling is Six Men's Bay. The west coast beach offers relatively calm, soft, tan sand, and palm trees. The area has a local feel, yet still offers great swimming and basic amenities slightly off the beach.

Reeds Bay: Popular amongst locals looking for a less tourist-y beach, Reeds Bay is quiet and clean, great for a quick dip in the cool waters and a drink at the John Moore Bar.
