Mullins Beach:

This is a very popular beach with moderately calm waters. It is easily accessed and parking is available right across the road. There are also food and drinks available from Mullins Beach Bar right on the beach, who also provide decent lighting at night for those who may like night-time swimming. It makes a nice picnic spot during the day and is definitely worth a visit. Batts Rock is located on the west coast of the island just a few minutes from the capital city of Bridgetown. Batts Rock is a designated Public Beach area and has picnic benches, shower and changing facilities, drinks machine, and a small children's playground with slides, swings, and see-saws. The sea here is calm and excellent for swimming while the crystal-clear waters and small rocky areas make it an interesting snorkeling location as well. Among the trees that line the shore you will see the ruins of what was, many years ago, a popular beachfront dancing spot! Batts Rock adjoins Paradise beach and the wooded area between the two beaches is equipped with benches, with the trees providing the perfect shade for picnics Brandons Beach is located just on the outskirts of the capital city of Bridgetown, on the west coast of Barbados. The waters here are very calm and this is a great place to swim, but there is much more to do at this beach! Weisers on the Bay is a great spot to hang out. Enjoy beach games and watersports or just relax in the shade of a sunbrella. Let one of their smiling waitresses pamper you with the best in Caribbean Cuisine and Cocktails as you dine in the palm covered restaurant! Brandons is also the home of the Malibu Visitor Centre and Beach Club. Malibu offers several tour packages with such options as a guided tour of the rum distillery and a Bajan buffet luncheon tour. Watersports facilities, including wave runners, banana boat rides, water-skiing, windsurfing, Hobie Cat rides and kayaking are available, along with beach activities such as volleyball, football and paddle tennis. The beach is only a couple of minutes walk from the Bridgetown Cruise Terminal, and so is the perfect place for cruise visitors to spend the day in Barbados. Sandy Lane This magnificent beach is situated on the west coast of Barbados, just south of the Holetown area. The Caribbean waters here are very calm, making this a great spot for swimming. Jet skis and catamarans pass by, along with the occasional local fishing boat. Widely known as the "Sandy Lane" beach, this stretch takes its name from the luxurious Sandy Lane Hotel which is nestled in the mahogany trees, directly off this beach. First opened in 1961, this magnificent hotel has gained a reputation as one of the finest resorts in the Caribbean, and has welcomed royalty, celebrities, and the business elite. Heywoods Located in the north-western parish of St.Peter, near to the town of Speightstown, is this wide, quiet beach. Here you will find a large open area ideal for swimming, and smaller rock-enclosed pools that are perfect for children to wade in. As with most beaches along the west coast, the waters here are very calm. The shallow reefs are good for snorkeling, and other watersports are available nearby. Around the corner the beach narrows considerably but there are still small pools in which you can take a dip!
