The south coast's Dover Beach can be found in Oistins, which sits in Christ Church parish. Although the beach's waves make it less than ideal for activities like paddleboarding and kayaking, its waters are great for surfing and body surfing. Other popular water sports include Hobie Cat sailing, jet skiing and windsurfing. A swimming area away from the ocean's rip tides is also available.
Travelers in search of a less crowded shoreline will appreciate Dover Beach's relaxed vibe. In fact, some former visitors noted that Dover Beach's laid-back atmosphere was so inviting that they didn't explore any other beaches during their stay. Another bonus: Many of the beach bars offer happy hour deals.
Located just a couple miles south of the Barbados Boardwalk, Dover Beach is easily accessible by bus and car. Free street parking, though limited, is available. Various hotels, restaurants and bars sit nearby, and water sports equipment can be rented at the beach from independent vendors. Beach chair and umbrella rentals are also offered for a small fee. Other area facilities include public restrooms and souvenir shops. Lifeguards are on-site from sunrise to sunset.
