Best Beaches for Picnics


Ins & Outs of Barbados

July 17, 2023

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. 

Palm Beach,
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.

Things to do

From swimming with sea turtles, partying under the stars, exploring the rugged east coast to enjoying the island’s duty free shopping, Barbados has something for everyone.
