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.

For ready-to-go picnic lunches, contact Relish Epicurea (621 0077) at

Limegrove, or Cutters Deli (423 0611) near the Crane Beach.

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

available from

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.
