Access to the beaches

The local beaches offer the best of Barbados. Fine white sand, comfortable and safe access to the water and tropical scenery with coconut palms.

At both Maxwell and Dover Beach, you'll find sunbed and umbrella rentals as well as more expensive bars and beach restaurants. The only downside to the local beaches is that they tend to have bigger waves and therefore not as good snorkelling conditions. However, the waves are rarely so big as to be dangerous.

Although Maxwell Beach in particular is literally surrounded by luxury resorts, beach access is free for all.

Transport to the beaches

A road marked Highway 7 runs along the coastline within 150 metres of the beaches.

Transport is therefore preferable by bus or the much busier ZRs, i.e. shared taxis with a precise route. These run from Bridgetown (Constitution River Terminal) all along the south coast to Oistins, some (the 3D line) continue to the airport. Frequency of service is approximately 5 to 10 minutes.

Small vans are supplemented 1-2 times per hour by a conventional large bus, which terminates in Bridgetown at Fairchild Street Station.

Detailed information on getting around the island is given in the chapter Transport in Barbados.
