Though Barbados offers an array of beaches to enjoy, one the island's most popular attractions is the Barbados Boardwalk. Situated less than 4 miles south of Bridgetown, this coastal boardwalk connects Accra and Camelot beaches. In addition to providing outdoor enthusiasts with scenic ocean vistas, turtles and crabs are known to visit the adjacent waters. For the best views, plan your visit at sunrise or sunset.

Most former visitors raved about the Barbados Boardwalk's views and cleanliness. However, some travelers caution that the boardwalk's wood can get hot during the day, so be sure to wear shoes when visiting. And to avoid sunburns and dehydration, pack plenty of sunscreen and water.

The mile-long Barbados Boardwalk is nestled along Hastings' coast near several restaurants and bars. The boardwalk is free to access throughout the day, and complimentary parking is offered throughout the area. Public restrooms and benches are also available at select parts of the boardwalk. No bus stops are located within walking distance.

#1 Bathsheba Beach

Bathsheba Beach, which sits on Barbados' west coast, is a photographer's and surfer's paradise. For photographers, Bathsheba offers dramatic rock formations and abandoned homes. And for surfers, there's the beach's famous Soup Bowl, where top-notch waves can be found. Named after the area's foamy water, the Soup Bowl is so well-known that international surfing competitions are regularly held here. Do not, however, plan on swimming at Bathsheba. Because of the region's rough waters and rock formations, it is not safe to swim at Bathsheba Beach.

Recent travelers praised Bathsheba Beach's picturesque setting and phenomenal surf. Though many said the beach's rock formations more than justify a visit, Bathsheba Beach is a great spot to fly kites and enjoy a beach picnic as well. Keep in mind, though, that public transportation is limited in this area, so a rental car is recommended.
