Beaches of the South Coast

Bar­ba­dos is well known for her clear, blue waters, shal­low reefs and glit­ter­ing white sand, and the south coast cer­tainly is no excep­tion. These beaches are hives of activ­i­ties, bustling with locals and vis­i­tors. Here, you can also find bars and restau­rants on, or in close prox­im­ity to sev­eral beaches. This coast also reveals sev­eral street ven­dors, rang­ing from food to arts and crafts. You may even pass some coconut ven­dors on the sides– be sure to take a taste of the refresh­ingly cool and deli­cious coconut water. This enchant­ing coast has many beach gems nes­tled within its ter­ri­tory. From swim­ming and snor­kel­ing, to the wide vari­ety of water­sports avail­able, it is no won­der that the South Coast is often referred to as the “Fun Coast’. As this is where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean see, the waters are gen­tler than those on the East Coast, yet rougher than those on the West so swim­mers must be aware of pos­si­ble unex­pected, strong sea cur­rents that may nat­u­rally occur.
