Whether you’re packing up your own or having your hotel or villa staff prepare it for you, a picnic at the beach is always fun and relaxing.
Bath, St. John
This long breezy beach has plenty of shade, shallow swimming and a nice coastal walk. Public facilities and good parking.
Gibbs, St. Peter
Parking is a bit tricky, up a side road and there is quite a long walk through the public access but its worth the effort.
Heywoods, St. Peter
A long stretch of beach north of Speightstown just across from the Caboose Seafood Boat with lovely swimming and good parking.
Miami Beach, Christ Church
This popular beach has plenty of shade and two distinct swimming areas, one of which is very calm.
Bottom Bay, St. Philip
With very large waves most of the time, not many people swim here but it is relatively safe to do so. Access is by a long, steep flight of steps.
Bathsheba, St. Joseph
There is not much shade so umbrellas are necessary and the swimming is limited to rock pools, but in spite of all that Bathsheba is still a beautiful and memorable picnic spot.
Hastings, Christ Church
Between Sugar Bay Resort and Palm Beach Condos, is a lovely shady spot to the left with good swimming in front of Coconut Court Hotel.
