Heavy beach erosion and tidal surge makes for uncomfortable early season swimming
Early season weather conditions have made sporadic challenges to sea swimming this year
Whilst not an issue to seasoned visitors it may be a problem to young families
A lovely beach with calm, clear blue sea. There are a few rocks on the sea bed but only a few. Certainly not enough to worry about.

I have just experienced this place. Not a good business model. Greeted by the sign $2 to use the bathroom. We used the sun loungers for the day and inquired about the sign, no payment was needed from us. The bartender had different ideas and...More

I can't comment on the hotel as we did a vacation rental south of where you're staying. If I remember correctly, that hotel is just outside of Holetown, and there's plenty of restaurants and cafes that offer Wi-Fi in that area; I don't recall anything beachside that had Wi-Fi. You'll be about a 40 minute taxi drive away from the airport without traffic delays; probably about 30-35 minutes away from Bridgetown without traffic delays.
We stayed on Paynes Bay Beach for over a week last spring and loved it, but we're not your typical Western tourists who demand creature comforts either. We've stayed all over the Caribbean and this is one our favorite spots to vacation. The beach was beautiful and safe; there's good snorkeling and sea turtles were common. My one complaint with regards to the beach is the locals trying to sell you services and trinkets, but a simple "no" will suffice in sending them away. If you don't have beach chairs/loungers you'll want to rent some down at the beach. My advice is to ask someone at the hotel who'd they recommend to rent from and only use that person during your stay, they'll help keep the other vendors away from you.
