Best beach for the day.

We will be visiting Barbados in Feb, 2013. Would love to spend the day at a really nice beach, with nice place for lunch (beachbar) and nice lounge chairs. Does not have to have all the rental stuff just great beach and water. Price is really not an issue, just want the best beach.

Thanks for all your anticipated help!

I would say have a look at Rockley/Accra beach on the South Coast. You have a nice beach bar in Side Shore Bar and when you rent your chairs from the guy at the bar you get a voucher for the restaurant. There are also kiosks for shirts etc. A small mall across the street for shopping and more food options and you are at the starting point for South coast boardwalk where there are more restaurants and a nice spot to walk and people watch. Beach also has life guards, clean washrooms and change rooms.Lots of taxis or on the bus route.

A bit further up the road there is Worthing Beach and Sandy Bay with chair rentals, Crystal Waters Bar and Caribe Beach Bar, On a nice calm Bay with a small reef out front and turtles in the bay.

I agree 110% with MrsBB. Rockley Beach is the place for you and it's just 12 minutes drive from the Bridgetown Port if you're arriving via a cruise ship.

Hi .we have been to Barbados 11 times now and the 2 best beaches in our minds are Crane Beach and Mullins of the 2 we preferred Mulins as the access to Crane Baech is a little restricted but Mullins is easy to get to on the west coast so it's calm and the beach bar/resteraunt is spot on you can even have a look on a live web cam that's streaming from the beach if you need proof have a look-

Mullins looks great how far it from the cruise ships?

Mullins is a 25-30 minute drive or so from the Bridgetown Port.

You should be aware that the Mullins beach camera can look a bit deceiving as to size of the beach...it can be very 'cramped' at times due to fluctuation in size and tides...As it gets closer to your arrival time check with WestieGal or BGI for the dimensions.

Enjoy Barbados wherever you decide to go.
