Barbados Beach Scenes There is lots of great fun to be found on the South Coast Beaches of Barbados, with miles of white sandy beaches for you to enjoy during the many hours of daily sunshine.

The south coast of Barbados is known as the "Fun Coast" and runs south from the capital Bridgetown through to the parish of Christ Church. The sea on this coast has mostly medium waves and is a bit more active than the west coast, but is not as rough as the southeast coast, east coast or north coast. The calmest waters can be found in the Carlisle Bay area.

Barbados' south coast beaches are renowned for their wide variety of beach activities, which range from snorkeling to windsurfing and kite boarding, with a selection of excellent dive sites.

For adventurous beach activities you should venture to the more southern end of the island where you can experience more active sea conditions and all types of surfing.

This coast is densely populated with Accommodations, Bars, Restaurants and Night Clubs. It is more suited for groups or individuals who are looking for fun all day and all night.

For your benefit we have provided a list from South to Southeast of the Beaches on the south coast of Barbados with public access, as well as Directions, Activities, Amenities and more.

We have also provided a chart of Beach Amenities on the south coast for those who want a quick look at what each beach has to offer.

Now it's time for you to rent-a-car or scooter and check out the variety of lovely beaches on the south coast. Please don't forget your sunscreen.

As you're taking in the beaches leave some time out for the many sights, activities and tours in Barbados.
