Barbados is a gorgeous Caribbean island with incredible weather and the kind of soft sand, clear warm water and swaying palm trees that make up some kind of holiday fantasy.

If you are a beach lover, then book your Barbados holidays now as Barbados beaches are some of the most inviting stretches of sand and sea that you will find anywhere in the world. Here are a few of the top beaches you could be lazing on during a Barbados beach holiday.
Cattlewash Stunning Beach
Great for escaping the crowds, this delightful beach is set against rugged scenery and breath-taking cliffs of rock. If you’re not swimming or paddling, this is a terrific beach for long, tranquil walks.
Always a favourite, this lovely beach is blessed with natural beauty. The water is turquoise, the sand has a pink tinge and the vegetation behind is jewel green. No wonder travel magazines and Instagrammers love taking photos of this beach.
Some travellers want to do more than just lie on or look at the beach – although that is plenty for many people! Carlisle Bay is an inspiring destination for scuba divers as there is so much for divers to experience. From tantalising shipwrecks to glowing marine life, diving here will be a treat. Creatures you could expect to see might include manta rays, seahorses and moray eels. There is a welcoming fish shack on the sand where you can have a tasty snack afterwards too.
Sandy Lane Beach
Part of the exclusive Sandy Lane Hotel, this superb beach is part of the renowned Platinum Coast and the spot to see celebrities on holiday. You might need to be staying at the hotel to get access, but it’s also a charming place to stay, with luxurious accommodation, vivid sunsets and a fringing of palm trees to go with everything.
This is the beach to come to when you feel like some serious wave action. At Bathsheba Beach, the Atlantic Ocean pounds against the sand and rocks that emerge from the waters. This is where you will find the famous reef break known as Soup Bowl, and the beach is popular among surfers looking for the perfect wave. It’s also a great beach for walking and taking a few dramatic beach photos.
If you like a beach with a lively bar and a vivid sunset, then you’ll love Alleynes Bay where you will find both. With friendly locals, rum cocktails and a wide range of places to snack or have dinner, this is an appealing beach that is also a lot of fun.
If you’re on a family holiday with small children, then you probably want a safe, gentle beach where the kids can splash about safely. Rockley Beach, which is sometimes called Accra Beach, is a terrific choice for a family beach outing. The smallest children can paddle away at the serene southern end of the beach, while older children can use their boogie boards at the other end where the waves are a little livelier. There are trees to get out of the sun and rock pools to explore too.
Silver Sands Beach
Some travellers want excitement at the beach and you’ll find it here courtesy of a wide range of water sports. Wind and geography work together to create the perfect spot to try paddleboarding, kitesurfing or regular surfing. It’s also a lovely place for picnics and walks too.
