The kids (9 and 11) really enjoyed the use of the kayaks, paddle boards and snorkel gear, as did we!! Lovely reefs full of fish a short kayak away. Julie and Calvin went out of their way...

Could not want for more! On a fantastic safe beach with powder white sand, lovely trees down to the waters edge for shade, this place is heaven on earth. The bungalows are all you could need cool and quiet with ocean views to die for or garden bungalows surrounded by topical plants and all that stirs in the mornings are...

FARES/CABINS As my photo's will attest, the accommodation facilities at Barrier Beach met and exceeded my expectations. I know it's a little thing but a big deal to me - they have filter coffee in bar fridge and that (for me) is just the icing on the cake! EQUIPMENT Although we bring our own snorkel gear, I saw that the...
