Dover beach is a real dreamy beach with amazing white sands and fab clear water. The sea can be a little rough but also at times very calm. Nice to see this beach.

Beautiful, good surf. Sometimes seaweed can be a problem. Decent restaurants on the Gap nearby. Try Sea Fans for a beautiful view.

This is a wonderful smaller beach along the coast. Lifeguards, chairs/umbrellas, and bars/restaurants are all there too. The water is clear and there are just enough waves to have fun and feel like a kid again.

This is a Lovely Clean Beach, with great view and close to the Bars where you can get fresh food and cold beers, what more do you need.

We quite like the beach within the harbour, but with the ferries coming and going are not too sure about water quality. Whilst they are working on the new layout of the marina there is a fair bit of industrial noise. However it looks like...More

Love this beach but it’s suffering a seaweed issue at the moment and makes swimming in the sea impossible. Been like it for a few weeks now and not showing any signs of going yet. Travel up the coast a bit and it’s not an...More

Nice beach like most of the beaches on Barbados with lovely sand shallow water and just enough waves to make it interesting but still safe. Ideal for families.
