Located close to many of Bridgetown’s top resort hotels and within the capital’s UNESCO World Heritage Site historic city and garrison, Pebbles Beach sits on the southwest coast of Barbados. Despite its name, Pebbles comprises flat white sands that drift effortlessly into the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. It’s a popular beach destination with families due to its spacious sands and calm waters.
Forming a part of Carlisle Bay, Pebbles Beach is also a favourite with snorkelers and scuba divers, since there are no less than six shipwrecks to explore beneath the waves. But the water sports don’t end there, with kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, catamarans and sleek yachts all waiting to take you on your next adventure and nearer to the beach’s flourishing reefs. Arrive early, and you might catch sight of the island’s champion race horses stretching their legs on the sands too.
When it comes to refreshment, the place to head has to be Cuz’s Fish Stand, on the northern side of the beach. Here you can try an island delicacy, the fish, tomato and lettuce buns known locally as “cutters”. Sit down at the nearby picnic tables to enjoy the treat, as younger beachgoers try out the children’s playground.
Sun loungers and beach chairs are available to rent, while toilets, changing rooms and showers also exist. Lifeguards are on duty during popular times.
