Small area of sand and giving access to a walk along shore line but depending on water depth may have to scramble over a few rocks. Nice for just lying on beach or a swim.

We walked along this beach hoping to reach a beach bar but no luck. It is very small but would be OK for paddling in. The hotels are reachable from one end

This became one of our favourite beaches as it was quiet and had a turtle every day we visited at roughly the same spot. For swimming, the beach near the road has good access in and out of the water and is sandy bottom, snorkelling...More

We went to paynes bay via the sandy lane private beach that we were on but had a wonder round. You can also get to it via the entrance by no 1 sandy lane (the biggest gaff I've ever seen). We hired some beds off...More

A nice walking beach dotted with hotels and small and fancy restaurants off the beach. Having travelled to Barbados many times I found this area to be the best for swimming and just relaxing. There are a range of hotels at various prices so choice...More

Places to snorkel and swim. Just watch out for the 'shelf' of loose shingle pushed up by the tide which can make it tricky to get in and out until you master the technique!

I visited with some friends and some beers in the evening time and the water was crystal clear and the aura very chilled since there were very few visitors (week day) Only disappointment was very little natural shade but umbrellas we available for rental.

What a nice little beach. We parked at the Paynes Bay Pentecostal church for a donation and walked across the street, down a public path. Nothing negative about this place other than a few overly aggressive vendors. A simple "no thank you" should do. Some...More

I can't comment on the hotel as we did a vacation rental south of where you're staying. If I remember correctly, that hotel is just outside of Holetown, and there's plenty of restaurants and cafes that offer Wi-Fi in that... More
