Carlisle Bay, Bridgetown Reviews

  • Beautiful beach. Silky white sand in and out of the water. Calm water. Stunning, but a very busy beach. Sellers are out in full force here. If you want to stay out of the crowds then walk south from Bridgetown - towards Pebbles beach. Recommended for a day you want to people watch and just chill by the beach all day. A bunch of places to eat along the beach too if you get hungry. A short swim out towards the centre of the bay and you’ll reach a wreck that is just 10 ft below the water. Nothing like you’ll ever see. It’s worth the swim!

  • Best spot to swim, snorkle and even get some fun going like banana rides, glass bottom boat, Sea-Doo rides for a price. The beach itself us clean and if the finest sand and you can even rent chairs and umbreaklas so bring cash

  • a public long white sand beach with safe swimming and several beachside bars. deckchair/sunshade hire all along it

  • A little rough but doable

  • Really nice beach, white sand and blue calm water. Water sports and boat trips available. You might get hassled a bit by jewelry sellers or water sports people but not too much. If you there early you might get better deals on snorkeling or water sports.
