Fodor's Expert Review Turtle Beach

South Coast Beach
Stretching from Turtle Beach Resort and Sandals Barbados at the eastern end of St. Lawrence Gap to Bougainvillea Barbados on Maxwell Coast Road, this broad strand of powdery white sand is great for sunbathing, strolling, and—with low to medium surf—swimming and boogie boarding. This beach is a favorite nesting place for turtles; hence, its name. If you're lucky, you may see hundreds of tiny hatchlings emerge from the sand and make their way to the sea. Find public access and parking on Maxwell Coast Road, near Bougainvillea Barbados. Amenities: food and drink; parking (no fee). Best for: swimming; walking.
