This is a super clean private beach with great bar. The super soft sand, crystal clear- calm waters, nice chairs with umbrellas and great bartenders make this a wonderful place to spend a few hours or a whole day!

Visited here from cruise line we were on. Walked to the Boatyard from the ship. We got there early as I believe they close it off after a certain point. It was $20 dollars to get in this included a complimentary drink on arrival from soft drinks, 2x options of Rum Punch or beer. I would recommend before getting your... More

Visited here on our last cruise day before returning to uk. We were told of this place by a fellow cruiser. What a findit was, we had a taxi there and paid $20 each entry which gave us the use of two loungers, umberella and a drink st the bar, which was good in itself. Later we found out that... More

I have been to the boatyard every time I have visited Barbados. It is a real fun place to go. Lovely beach and lots of things for the kids to play on. Water trampoline, water climbing wall / iceberg and a rope swing into the sea off their jetty, and if you are feeling brave (my 9 year old was)... More

We had a great time at The Boatyard. It was our first time in Barbados but wanted a nice beach to relax at for a few hours while in port. It is extremely touristy but has a bunch of wonderful amenities that would be perfect for adults and kids. You get one free drink upon entrance and free access to... More

This is now the quick option for cruise passengers in Barbados. It is okay but more for the younger at heart as it is noisy and always packed on cruise ship days. Anyone wanting a peaceful relaxing day on a Barbados beach should not choose this one.

We love this beach! We have been to Barbados twice and have been to the Boatyard both times! It is only $20 dollars to get in which includes a boat trip to snorkel with the turtles, sun loungers, parasol, a drink and use of all the facilities. The beach is soft white sand and clear clue sea, a true beautiful... More

This was our third trip to Barbados and our first time to The Boatyard. It reminded me of spring break the younger years. We all liked swimming with the turtles (2). The 10, 11, & 13 year olds loved the water activities and want to go back the next time we come to Barbados. The adults were not impressed with... More
