    You have to go and see this place.
    It was not a good day to go swimming but the views take your breath away .
    It down a funny little road in between a load of new build bungalows but don't be fooled by that,the parking is ok but take care close to the edge,you can fall off .
    Take the camera ....

    We had two separate experiences in Carlisle Bay. Staying at the Hilton, we walked over to Pebble Beach one day and rented chairs from a vendor. On this part of the beach (before you reach the Radisson), the atmosphere is a bit grittier, with random vendors offering chair/umbrella rentals. There is a cocktail truck with super cheap drinks which was certainly a plus. On another occasion, we went further down the beach, past the Radisson, and both the water and surrounding area got a lot prettier (nicer beach chairs, bluer water, etc.) This part is also more expansive, allowing you to walk along the beach if desired. We learned about this nicer part at the end of our stay, so we didn't have a chance to return, but totally would have, given that the beach at our hotel left something to be desired.

    We snockelling with one of my wife's most loved creatures. 🐢. This was hands down the main attraction to us. Tour guide was feeding them and some of them came too close to us. We also did the ship wreck nearby and it was cool.

    Although it may not be like those huge malls overseas, it still has an appeal to it. There are a variety of stores as well as eateries and it's a good place to shop as a family in an air conditioned environment.

    Beautiful beach which is cleaned early each morning. Clean toilets nearby & some outside showers .
    Love seeing the locals enjoying their family get togethers & having their swims in the lovely clear water .

    Great night out at Oistins. We arrived on Friday via taxi from our hotel, it was a great night out, we had a few beers and then joined the longest que for the food which was the way that was suggested to make sure we had the best food. We enjoyed swordfish with coleslaw rice and fries it tasted great. We walked round the marketplace and enjoyed the local entertainment for a couple of hours and would recommend a visit

    Did the standard visitor’s tour. Comes with 4 free drinks (a welcome rum punch and 3 rum samples). Rico did a wonderful job of providing the history behind Mount Gay and rum making. Gift shop offers lots to buy. Definitely something worth doing when in Barbados.

    It was a great place to snorkel. A great diversity a few meters off the beach. The food was good, the people welcoming and the area was well maintained.

    My only comment would be to put signage on the road leading up to it and at the entrance itself. Maybe I missed it but we drove right by, doubled back and guessed where the entrance was located. It was tucked away behind other buildings.

    BERWYN was deliberately scuttled by her crew, sometime around 1916:
    they didn't want to do the next run for fear of German U-boats.
    So they opened her sea-cocks and let her wallow
    (which is why she is essentially upright today, even though she's crumbling fast)
    Everyone including the ship's cat swam ashore to Browne's Beach, unharmed.
    This info. from historian Edward Stoute, before he died.

    Our day at the Boatyard was fantastic, The beach was superb with Trampoline and Rope swings off the Jetty, It cost $30 per person but you got a card with $22.50 dollars credit to spend on food and drink which is enough for a meal and 2 drinks but the best thing is you get a 45 minute boat trip which includes swimming with Turtles and swimming over a shipwreck with lots of fish to see, all snorkel’s and life jackets are provided, I couldn’t recommend this place any more, A must do if visiting Barbados. All staff were excellent as well ☀️🏖🐢

    It took some doing for friends and family to lure me from Coconut Court Beach Hotel to Accra Beach but I am delighted I chose Accra Beach
    Shout out to Onika who has gone above and beyond to welcome my daughter and I. We are so touched. Thank you!!!
    Location! location! location! is all I can say about the hotel, right on beautiful Accra Beach and near good places to eat and have good coffee . We have an Ocean View room with a great view of the pool and the ocean. Just what we hoped for.
    So far, all the staff are lovely and patient and keen to help. Might update with some pictures if I have time.

    A very enjoyable and informative trip. A bit pricey for how long it lasts but that will improve as more of features open. Go after 15th June!
    They will need to ensure transfers allow more time between arrive and return.
