Latest reviews on Gemswick's beaches

Freights Bay beach
10 Nikos Katsaros

The beach is the perfect spot on the island for learning how to surf, and it's even better because there are turtles everywhere, way more than you'll find on any turtle tour.

Maxwell beach
10 Raffaele Fiore

I absolutely adore this beach! The golden, fine sand is simply breathtaking. It's one of my favorite spots to relax and soak up the sun. Highly recommend a visit!

Worthing beach
10 Marie Warrick

This beach truly is my happy place, with its soft golden sand that feels amazing underfoot. The scenery is breathtaking, and the clear blue water is perfect for swimming and relaxing. I could spend hours here without getting bored, and I always leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

Crane beach
8 Danny RAKO

The panoramic view of the eastern coast of the island is simply awe-inspiring. Although there is a moderate amount of seaweed, it did not detract from the overall experience. The sand is velvety smooth and the waves can be a bit challenging since it's on the Atlantic side, but there are tranquil days when the water is ideal for a refreshing swim.

Dover beach
10 Rashid Ali

The beach was stunning! It was my first visit to Barbados and I was blown away by its beauty. The golden fine sand added to the overall charm of the place.

Bottom Bay
10 Rashid Ali

Bottom Bay Beach is a true treasure that is easily accessible. The app accurately directs you to the beach, and there is parking available in an unpaved area that can fit a few cars. The stone steps leading to the beach are beautifully capped with intricate land coral fingerprints. As you make your way down the footpath lined with a dense canopy of trees, you'll be greeted by a visually stunning beach with ample white sand. The sky-high coconut trees sway in the strong wind, adding to the beach's natural beauty. The water is clean and refreshing, but the waves can be quite strong, so it's not recommended for major swimming. Additionally, there is a small cave tucked away in the undercut of the cliff. Overall, Bottom Bay Beach is a must-visit destination for anyone looking to enjoy a serene and picturesque beach experience.
