Carlisle Bay on the South Coast
Barbados Beach Therapy
Barbados is surrounded by miles of glorious, palm-fringed, white sand beaches
lapped by crystal clear, turquoise waters. Here is a brief coast-by-coast guide
to some of our favourite beaches. Check the Barbados in a Nutshell Road
Map, included in this publication, for the symbols indicating Vehicular and
Pedestrian Beach Access.

A Few Words of Caution
• Remember, Barbados is only 13 degrees north of the equator so be sure to
use a sunscreen with a high protection factor and reapply regularly.
• When snorkeling, remember to take a brightly coloured buoy/float so
that you are clearly visible to water craft – these are
Hazell’s Water World
(see page 71).
• Beware of the poisonous manchineel trees (usually
marked with a red ring around the trunk) with their
yellow-green ‘apples’ found along the west coast
beaches - the tree and its fruit cause severe blistering.
