The gorgeous beaches in Barbados are touted as some of the most anticipated tourist sites that the island has to offer.
Visitors love that Sunset Sands Apartments is located directly on the waterfront, so you won't need to go out of your way to see what makes the area so special.
Of course, since Sunset Sands Apartments is located on Heywoods Beach, laying out in the sun is one of the main attractions 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. For guests who want some variety, the following options each offer something a little different. Click the names below to learn more:

The nearest one is Six Men's Bay. Six Men's Bay is a quiet beach on the west coast of the island and is popular for local fishermen, who are typically found repairing boats and nets. The area is both known for its swimming, as well as its scuba diving, as divers can find wrecks a short distance from the coast. Local bars and restaurants are close by. Importantly (especially for those with young children), the amenities available include bathrooms and showers.
If you're searching for a chance to escape the crowds, Gibbs Beach could be a better choice for you. Gibbs Beach is tucked away on the west coast of the island and is largely free of tourists. Situated among some of the most attractive homes on the island and surrounded by beautiful tropical foliage, the beach's smooth sand is perfect for private strolls. It's located a mile and a half south of these accommodations.
Travelers who aren't ready to book their rooms before learning about the area's important features might like to know how far away the closest town or city is from their accommodations. Sunset Sands Apartments is located outside the center of Speightstown.
