On the south coast of the island, just east of St. Lawrence Gap is the lovely Maxwell beach.
Like most beaches on the south coast of Barbados, the sea at Maxwell beach is a bit lively. However the waters are still calm enough for safe swimming, even for supervised children.
At Maxwell beach the wide expanse of white coral sand leads down to shimmering turquoise waters that invite you in for a dip. Rent beach chairs and umbrellas or relax on the picnic benches and enjoy the views and cooling tropical breezes.
Take along a picnic lunch, or head just east of Maxwell beach to Oistins for a local lunch from the supermarket deli, a bite at Surfers Cafe or a fast food lunch from KFC or Chefette (our local fast food chain).
Several watersports are available from the beach including Hobie cats (small catamaran-like vessels) and jet skis. Some spots are also good for light boogie boarding.
- Stay at Golden Sands Hotel - a skip away from one of the most beautiful stretches of white sand beaches and blue waters on the south coast of the island.
- Wake up to stunning ocean views at Bed & Breakfast Barbados. Located right on a beautiful white sand beach, these holiday apartments are just steps away from the sea!
