The beaches of Speightstown vary from being hard to reach to being backed by hotels.  While you can't use lounge chairs and other facilities that are the property of a resort if you aren't staying on-site, all of the island's beaches are public property so you are free to take advantage of the well-manicured shores no matter where your accommodations are located.

Speightstown's Mullins Beach

If you enjoy snorkeling, a place offering that option 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 option for visitors who enjoy snorkeling is Six Men's Bay. The Bay is accessible for both drivers and walkers and lies off of Highway 1B. Signs direct visitors to the area, though the small fishing village that surrounds the area should offer a useful tip off.

Reeds Bay: You can find Reeds Bay at the junction of Carlton and Highway One, where there is limited parking along the bay.
