Bottom Bay





Coconuts, Cliffs and Culture

Beautiful Bottom Bay is certainly not on the bottom of any revered beach list; in fact, this beach is a top tourist attraction, thanks to its eye-candy combination of blue waters, green coconut trees and sugary white sands. High coral cliffs enclose the beach and allow for panoramic views of the beach below.

Without a doubt, Bottom Bay is the ideal place to experience the local culture, cuisines and overall spirit of Barbados.

Look, But Don’t Swim

A favorite activity of beachgoers is to picnic under the tall palm trees that dot the beach. While the waves are a bit too tumultuous for swimming and snorkeling, visitors love the golfing, cruises, cycling and horseback tours, and other activities available near the beach.

For a more relaxed day, stroll up to the cliffs, where you’ll find stately mansions and luxe dwellings overlooking the sea.

Nearby Attractions

If you have kids along for the ride, take them to George V Memorial Park, a green expanse where they can run freely. Sunbury Plantation House and Museum gives visitors a glimpse of the island’s history, with a decorative arts bent.

The Six Roads Shopping Complex will give your credit card a workout, and the charming Rugged Point Lighthouse serves as a scenic landmark on the easternmost point of the island.
