Top 3 Beaches in Barbados

by Travelbag on 29 November 2016, 15:11PM

What makes Barbados such a great choice for a holiday? Well, aside from its year-long sunshine, luxury-laden resorts and welcoming island charm, the island is home to some of the world’s most incredible beaches. The beaches in Barbados are one of the main reasons why so many holidaymakers come back year after year,  for holidays, weddings and honeymoons. If you’ve been lucky enough to visit this Caribbean isle before, you’ll know to expect sugar white sands, warm cerulean seas and coconut palm trees. But where can you find the best beaches in Barbados? In this guide, we’ll talk you through the coves and resorts that you simply cannot miss during your holiday.

 

Crane Beach

When it comes to sheer natural beauty, Crane Beach wins every time. The beach really is a treat for the senses, with luscious greenery and gentle turquoise waters, which effortlessly lap onto the coast. But what separates this Bajan beauty from other beaches in Barbados is its incredible pink-tinted sands, which have been formed by years of crushed coral being washed onto the beach. The rose tinted sands give Crane Beach an ethereal feeling that you cannot miss during your Barbados getaway. Taking your loved one away? Watch the sunset from the comfort of your sun lounger for an experience you will never forget. But natural wonders aside, Crane Beach is also steeped in history. The region previously served as one of Barbados’ main cargo ports, which gave it its name. If you’re looking for places to stay near Crane Beach, we recommend the lavish 5-star Crane Resort And Residence hotel for its colonial charm and world-class facilities. Whether you’re going away with friends, family or your other half, you’ll be sure to have the time of your life in this magnificent part of Barbados.

Gibbes Beach

A short drive from Crane Beach toward the west coast of Barbados is the sublime golden sands of Gibbes Beach. The sheer beauty of this 300-yard stretch of paradisiacal coast has been known to leave holidaymakers breathless. You could say that Gibbes Beach is slightly off the beaten track – there are no major signposts or roads leading to the coast - but that’s what gives the beach its feeling of exclusivity. Don’t worry you won’t have to scale mountains or brave forests, Gibbes Beach is easily accessed by foot from the nearby Mullins resort, where you’ll find another fabulous coastal retreat.  Gibbes Beach is one of Barbados’ more idyllic beaches, making it a perfect choice for sunbathing and light swimming. If you’re energetic water sports are more your thing, you’ll want to look elsewhere as life here centres primarily on relaxation. As for hotels near Gibbes Beach, we recommend the famed Cobblers Cove hotel for its family-friendly atmosphere and unrivalled opulence. This is one spot in Barbados you do not want to miss.

Miami Beach

The beaches in Barbados are among some of the most beautiful in the whole Caribbean. There’s much debate around which of Barbados’ beaches are the best, but one stretch that does standout is the dazzling Miami Beach in Enterprise – a small town near Oistins.   The five-star Trip Advisor reviews continue to roll in for this majestic beach, which attracts both locals and tourists alike. Whatever you enjoy doing during your day out at the beach, you’re bound to be impressed by this enviable coastline. On top of sunbathing, you’ll also find opportunities for volleyball and the Caribbean’s favourite sport, cricket! Miami Beach is the place to experience a taste of the real Barbados, with snack bars and street vendors all serving up authentic Bajan snacks and cuisine. Beaches aside, the south coast boasts a number of palatial resorts for your Barbados holiday?Can’t decide where to stay?
