Fabulous beach on the west side of Barbados that has amazing carribean sand and clear sparkling sea water. Just Wow. Great place to sunbathe and to have a swim.

This is a gem! Turtles, sea glass and friendly people.. Love it. Spider is one of the guys selling chairs and is incredibly accommodating, friendly and genuine. Everytime we are in Barbados, this is the place we love to go!

Had a fabulous evening organised by Kadim and Lex, with excellent food, and impressive bonfire. Our group of 10 people were treated to a night to remember and these two made it all possible. Good music, excellent rum punch and good old Barbados hospitality. Besides...More

Paynes Bay is an extremely beautiful public beach. I would definitely recommend a visit. You can hire a bed for the day for about $20 Barbados/$10 US. I must say being approached constantly with offers of water sports, aloe vera, trinkets, jewellery etc. can get...More

The beach is a nice stretch that fronts some higher end hotels. While there are some rocks, it is a good spot for lounging or going for a walk. There are some motorized watersports available, however it is not so much that it intrudes on...More
