Barbados In A Nutshell 2019 - 2020

122 Beaches West Coast Beaches Calm, clear water, good swimming and snorkeling – lots of watersports. The earlier you get there, the better– the west is best in the mornings while there’s still some shade on the beaches. If you need masks and fins for snorkeling, visit Hazell’s Water World in Carlisle Bay (see page 80). Speightstown Area: In the north, between Half Moon Fort and Speightstown, there are a number of quiet beaches with excellent conditions for swimming, snorkeling and paddle boarding. There are quite a few very good restaurants and great little eateries in and around Speightstown, some to look out for include: Hugo’s , Juma’s and Little Bristol . Between Port St. Charles and the Sandals Resort which is under construction there is a public access road leading to a parking area and a glorious stretch of beach in front of the marina. Mullins Bay: Mullins Beach Bar is now a private ‘members only’ club associated with Royal Westmoreland. On either side are chair/umbrella rentals and drinks available with toys in the sea for clambering about on and constant availability of watersports operators. Bombas , just north of Mullins, is a wonderfully laid back beach bar serving tasty food and cold drinks. Gibbes Beach: A sweeping, sandy stretch of beach with lots of large Little Bristol “Great seaside spot for a drink or a casual meal in Speightstown.” This popular little deck bar on the sea and sand of Speightstown is famous for their shark wraps and burgers. The chicken rotis, sandwiches, fish cakes and salads are delicious. Popular for souse on Saturdays and local specials. The live entertainment on Wednesdays and Fridays is rocking but it’s a perfect place for lunch, sundowners or just a casual drink anytime. Open Tue-Sun 10am-7:30pm Closed Monday No Reservations.
