Beautiful place for a ride

Kids took a horse back ride here while my husband and I sat on some chairs enjoying the views and sand. The beaches here are not nearly as dirty as some others we went to.

If you want to be alone after crowd of 7 miles beach - that is the place. Or hiking , using several horseback riding facilities, two kitesurfing schools. It is safe. Even if you see people - very friendly encounter with another tourists or local walking their dogs...

Comfortable drive from seven mile beach. Quiet with few other people there during the day of our visit.

We've been to Barkers a few times now, the first time two years ago and this September, the first time it was beautiful but grubby, lots of rubbish everywhere, this time a little better but still a bit grotty, it's a real shame because it would be my favourite place to go if it felt cleaner. Hopefully if the beach... More

We booked a beach ride with Calypso Beach Trail Rides and had a wonderful, peaceful, beautiful time riding along the beach and in the water at this park. Perry is a great guide and has a good feel for matching horses and riders.

The interior of Barker's is a bit bland, but it's a great place to see long stretches of untouched beaches around its huge perimeter. Also a nice place to jog or bike if you can stand the heat -- very flat and hardly any vehicle traffic.

Barker's is still fairly pristine and remote. You can ride horses along the water, hike, sunbathe, and relax without the cruise ship issues. Lovely place for a nice day of sunning, swimming, and picnicking. Absolutely beautiful!

So different to 7 Mile Beach which I love too but Barkers is very special, a piece of unspoiled Cayman and a reminder of how it was before tourism. Plenty birds too always a bonus for me.

We stopped by here on a Jeep Tour. We literally spent only a few minutes here. While I would've loved to stay longer it was absolutely beautiful and serene. A little piece of paradise.
