Carlisle Bay, Bridgetown Reviews

  • Stunning beach, we swam out and did some snorkeling with rays, flying fish and turtles all around. We went when it was quieter as it attracts all the holiday makers as the day goes on. Totally understandable as there's something for everyone to enjoy. Gotta put this on your visit list.

  • 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!

  • Beautiful beach, turquoise water, white sand. The perfect place for sunbathing.

  • 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
