Dover Beach is to the west of the hotel, the first beach once you get to at the end of the road going east is used by Turtle Beach then the next hotel is Almond Casaurina. Locally Dover Beach as it's called by most is the beach stretch that fronts Southern Palms EATG etc. To my knowledge the beaches are usually identified with the buildings/hotels that use them or the name of the bay.
I'ts called Maxwell Beach or Turtle beach on the aerial photo (link below) Almond Casuarina is not marked but is crescent shaped hotel below the Barbados Blue sign. The beach to the extreme left is Dover Beach, the one in the centre is White Sands, and the beach to the right is Turtle Beach or Maxwell Beach.
My first post timed out before I could finish correcting it. But footchick is right about what the maps say and depending who you talk to some people use different designations to identify a beach such as a hotel etc. I used Skyviews Atlas to check for official names.
As far as I'm aware, locally we've always called that stretch of beach at Almond Dover Beach. I just checked with the hotel concierge over the phone and he has confirmed this. Now that I've also checked online, that's what the Almond Resorts, Virgin Holidays and several other travel sites say as well.
I've noticed that before about their website but as a tourist I think visitors should understand that you can not walk to 'Dover Beach' down the beach from Almond Casuarina would you say the Bougainvillea is on Dover Beach? The Bougainvillea and Casuarina are on the same beach. If someone said to me they wanted to be on Dover Beach I wouldn't suggest the Casuarina.
I think somewhere, somehow a few years back someone has created this misunderstanding. From the time Almond bought the Casurina years ago I always read it's located on Dover Beach and that's what I gone on for years. I always go to picnics in that area as well as friends refer to it as Dover Beach.
Which is where it is odd as they are on the same beach. My little picture is from the Bougainvillea and the Casuarina is at the other end.
Dover beach starts at the rocks where Divi Southwinds comes to it, then it ends by Maresol Apts . Round the side of there is White Sands beach (sometimes was called Rainbow beach when Rainbow Reef hotel was there) where WSV, Salt Ash, Four Aces and Oceans 2 is. The Beach where Casuarina, Turtle beach hotel and Bougainvillea is Maxwell beach.
