his somewhat sheltered bay called Church Point Beach
, is also known to some in Barbados as ‘Heron Bay
’ or ‘Colony Club Beach
’, and has mostly placid sea conditions with crystal clear waters and little to no undertow.
Church Point Beach is not a terribly wide beach, but it has some beach activity with watersports operators offering water related activities.
This beach is good for swimming and is perfect for snorkelling, with a shallow reef close to shore for you to explore, located to the far right (north end) of the beach. Just watch out for urchins!
Church Point/Colony Club Beach also fronts the exalting Heron Bay House, which is almost as bedazzling to look at as the pristine beach it looks upon. With chandeliers in the trees and the looming coral stone house, this is 14 acres of sheer opulence.
This famous house has been host to quite a few renowned political leaders like former PM of Britain Sir Winston Churchhill and US President Bill Clinton, as well as a number of international celebrities.
Colony Club/Church Point Beach can be found on the Caribbean Sea side of the island, on the West Coast of Barbados in the parish of St James.
