Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful hidden gem in Barbados; beautiful secluded beach where we were the only 2 there. The beach is nestled between high coral cliffs and surrounded by palm trees. The surf is rough so not a good swimming spot but the location and privacy make up for it. Unfortunately the day we were there, there was a lot of sargassum seaweed in the water and on the shoreline and has taken over many beaches in the Carribean. Still a lovely, off the beaten path beach to check out while you are in Barbados.

By far the prettiest beach in Barbados. OK a little on the wild side wave wise, but wow, the view…stunning. Parking lot entrance is treacherous, so beware those in small rentals.

I’ve been to a lot of places and walking down to get to Bottom Bay was just like going into a magical garden with the hanging plants. Just absolutely stunning. The waves are huge. You should not go in water but some crazies did. The water is blue. You can few the powerful and unforgiving nature yet beauty of the ocean. Just wow. # 1 thing on Barbados. A must see

Came to see the sunrise, was not disappointed. A surreal experience seeing the sun through the palm trees. Then descending the spooky steps to the beach was a magical experience like going into another world. A lot of crabs scurrying around too.

Nice beach but unfortunately when we were visiting the sea was rough and no swimmers around…. Just a couple taking their wedding photos.

This is a fabulous beach and the Atlantic Ocean was definitely at its wildest when we were there. This beach is not a swimmers beach but is still very much a beach to visit. Beware of the sand flies and also there was a Portugese Man of War Jellyfish on the beach. Make sure you take a look at the fossils in the rocks near the waters edge.

Rough road into a small car park. Gorgeous views from the top. Stairs down to the beach weren’t too taxing. Friendly but not pushy Coconut sellers at both the top and the beach itself. Sea too rough to swim in but an attractive beach.

Gorgeous beach, though the waves and rip tide make it too rough for most mortals to swim. This review is really for the impromptu cocktail stall operated by Yasir under a palm tree. He collects coconuts in the morning then hollows them out one by one for each customer, mixing rum and fruit juice with fresh coconut water. Try a Rihanna! The monkeys come out late afternoon and swing from the trees by the steps.

An amazing Christmas Eve for us & Christmas come early: we had this entire beach to ourselves!
Fabulous place, just a pity about some litter.
But, simply don’t wonderful together with the large cave to explore.

My favourite place on the planet 🌎 the views are extraordinary
Feel like a cast away on a desert island

Great for body boarding but not for swimming
Paddling is fine if your a strong swimmer
