Fodor's Expert Review Pebbles Beach
On the southern side of Carlisle Bay, just south of Bridgetown, this broad half circle of white sand is one of the island's best family-friendly beaches—and it can become crowded on weekends and holidays. The southern end of the beach wraps around the Hilton Barbados; the northern end is adjacent to the Radisson Aquatica Resort Barbados. Umbrellas and beach chairs are available to rent. Bring snorkel gear and swim out to see one of the shipwrecks. Arrive early in the morning (before 7 am) to watch race horses from Garrison Savannah taking a swim. Amenities: food and drink; parking; showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: snorkeling; swimming; walking.
