Stairs descend from the cliff top thru dense foliage to the wide sandy beach with tall palms. If you've seen the pictures you already know it's beautiful. The cliff overhangs on the east side of the beach forming a small cave and natural shade. Rough pounding surf not ideal for swimming. Probably a dangerous undertow. Swim at your own risk... More

The beach itself is really nice and worth a visit, it's only 4 stars though as there is no bar,restaurant or toilets.

Beautiful spot, definitely worth a stop. watch the rips as the beach is steep and the waves suck out if there is a swell. very pretty.

Most gorgeous location I have probably ever been to. Sam that "works" this beach is a really cool guy too. Throw him a few bucks for a shell or a coconut drink or a lounger, they work their butts off cleaning up this beach area. If we had this beach locale in America you would have to pay to visit...

We unfortunately only made it here on our last day in Barbados and did not actually have time to hang out on the beach - only time to take photos. We came on a Saturday afternoon and it was busier than I expected. There is a small parking lot which was full when we arrived (we got the last parking... More

We were fortunate enough to be staying only 4/5 minutes by foot from this beach. Some days there was just my wife and I here. The beach is clean. Being on the Atlantic side of the island the sea can be a little rough so be careful. Having fresh coconut milk with rum was a bit of decadence we enjoyed.

Do you know those pictures you see when you google the ‘caribbean’ or ‘paradise’? Well, few those pics must have been taken here in Bottom Bay. This little bay lies between two tall rocky shores with palms reaching the sky, soft and white sands and unbelievable blue sea! The whole place looks like exactly those pictures that you would think... More

Paradise- my favourite beach on Barbados, friendly locals delivered fresh juices in coconuts to the beach, absolutely beautiful secluded setting, kids loved the huge waves but be very careful re strong currents.

Beautiful and quiet beach. A little rough for swimming but ok for some serious paddling. Worth the trip.

We stayed in Bottom Bay for 2 weeks in February 2017 and to be honest, we travelled every day across to the other side of the Island. There is nothing to do in Bottom Bay, no restaurants, no nightlife or decent bars and very limited shopping. It is beautiful in it's own right but this whole side really has only... More
