Hailed as the most stunning and most charismatic of all the Caribbean isles, Barbados, an island country in the Atlantic Ocean, offers more than 70 beaches. There are also beautiful cave formations, intriguing gardens, and so much more. It is easy to be swept away by the subtle glamour of this region.
Native Barbadians are known for their courtesy, peaceful attitudes, and generosity. Visitors here feel welcomed, and aside from the laid-back atmosphere and amazing cuisines up for grabs, Barbados is perhaps most famous because of its variety of beaches. The island is 21 miles in length, 14 miles in width, and the shores are dotted with visitors, umbrellas in the sand, and umbrellas in the drinks as travelers seek the tranquility Barbados offers. There are also 11 parishes on the island, providing respite from the crowds and a connection to the divine.
Crane Beach, located in St. Phillip’s parish, is known as the beach of peace, or “peace beach.”
Located near Oistins, in the south of Christ Church parish, Miami Beach is voted as one of the top beaches to do nothing but soak in the rays of the sun. Oistins is primarily a fishing village, but tourists love hanging out here.
Perhaps the most famous of all of the southern beaches, Accra Beach tends to fill up early, and the majority of visitors usually spend their entire day with the sands of this beach between their toes.
Ju Ju’s Beach is known as the beach with the best views of sunset on the entire island.
Sandy Lane Beach is home to the Sandy Lane Resort. Located in Saint James, Sandy Lane Beach is just south of Holetown, which is another hotspot for visitors to the island nation.
At Cattlewash Beach it isn’t quite so difficult to find a great spot to lounge and relax for the day. This beach is located in the parish of Saint Joseph and, while it is a popular destination, it remains looking virtually undisturbed. The green native foliage and majestic cliffs will keep you in awe of your surroundings.
