Stunning location! one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen, I can walk backwards for hours knowing I wont step on anything or bump into anyone. The food is to die for and the management will make you feel like family plus I love the eco-friendly concept. I can't wait to come back!!

We did a lot of activities at the KIDS holiday Camp such as Yoga, Swimming, playing on the beach, going to the Sand Dunes and gymnastics. We participated in cleaning our tents and cooking competitions. It was FUN! We all made friends and Mrs. Selma and Mr. Eddie...

This is truly paradise. A must stay. The location,service,food are excellent and the owners go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and relaxed. Stunning rooms and views. You tend to get lost in the beauty once you are there. Keep it up guys.

From the moment that we arrived at Barefoot, we were treated like family, with every care catered for. The hospitality is first class and Eddie & Selma cannot do enough for you. Then comes the food! Phenomenal is the only adjective to do it justice. A truly wonderful experience, thank you.

Selma and Eddie showed us a wonderful time. Eddie is a chef, and the ginger crab and other seafood they cooked for us was absolutely spectacular. It is worth going just for the food, however, beyond that, they have a great rustic safari vibe going, with their tented camp right on the beach. It is very tastefully done, and luxurious....

Barefoot Beach Camp is a home away from home! The hosts Eddie & Selma were extremely warm & welcoming. Chef Eddie has a passion for cooking which is evident in his food, just scrumptious! My all time favorite, besides the food, was the bonfire and the conversations around it. If you're looking for an experience different from the hotel feel,...
