I experienced Carlisle Bay during my stay at the Radisson Resort. The long stretch of beach shared by several hotels and other establishment also a public picnic and general areas makes up this great beach. Swimming is the Carlisle Bay was a delightful experience for me and I enjoyed the invitingly warm clear and calm waters. I actually walked on the beach to and from nearby Bridgetown (quicker than taking the roads). The beach is quite popular and I met many beach goers at all times throughout the day. The Carlisle Bay is definitely a great place of interest to visit and enjoy whilst in the Tropical Paradise of Barbados.
Beautiful beach, turquoise water, white sand. The perfect place for sunbathing.
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.
Very nice beach
