Welcome to our beautiful Barbados beaches! From Mullins beach in the North to Brownes’ beach in the West, Accra Beach in the South and the famous Crane Beach in the East; Barbados is the ideal destination if you are all about sun, sea and sand.
Fun And Frolic
At most popular beaches there are activities such as riding on a jet-ski; riding on “banana boats” (a long yellow inflated floating object that is pulled along the surface of the seawater by another boat); snorkeling and diving; beach volleyball; surfing and paddle boarding. At beaches such as Brownes’ beach and Accra beach, you can dive on the reef and snap pictures of our amazing coral and diverse types of fish.
Also on Brownes’ Beach, one can parasail and try out the Thriller, a boat that goes across the water at top speed. The name aptly suits the boat. In addition, there is catamaran sailing. Enjoy a sumptuous Bajan meal while cruising across the ocean with stops to sea bathe or swim with the turtles. Some of the popular catamaran cruises are El Tigre, Cool Runnings, Jammin’ and Tiami, to name a few. Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun in the sun!!
