Miami Beach

Miami Beach

Miami Beach (also known as Enterprise Beach) is just outside Oistins on the South Coast of Barbados, in the parish of Christ Church, with Cotton House Bay and South Point Lighthouse to the east, and Maxwell Beach and Dover Beach to the west.

 

Miami Beach in Barbados is an endless expanse of powder soft white 'with a hint of pink' sandy beach, sheltered by tall cliffs and fringed with shady trees, and with safe crystal clear azure waters gently lapping onto the seashore. 

 

Miami Beach is the ultimate place for a family for a day at the beach. There are places to park; plenty of beach chairs, sun loungers and umbrellas for renting so you can sunbathe or watch the fishing boats head out to sea; miles of sand where children can run, play and dig; a warm, vivid turquoise sea for swimming, with all year round small to medium waves; body 'boogie' boards for rent so you can experience the thrill of ‘riding’ the waves; local vendors selling clothes, beachwear, beach accessories, and jewellery; vans selling snacks, soft drinks and refreshments all day, and numerous picnic benches in the shade of Casuarina trees where you can escape from the heat, cool down and enjoy your picnic. 

 

To make your day easier and safer, Miami Beach has a shallow sea area for safe swimming, protected by a breakwater; good disabled access to the beach; showers and toilets; and a lifeguard on duty. Be careful if you are swimming near the cliffs though, especially when the sea is in at high tide; and if you walk barefoot from the car park to the beach, watch out for the tiny, but very sharp, Casuarina pine cones on the ground! Children might like to collect these as well as searching for some of the beautiful shells that are washed onto the beach.

 

Miami Beach in Barbados is a very popular destination for the people of Barbados, particularly at weekends and Bank Holidays, so the best time to visit is probably during the week. As Miami Beach is so close to Oistins fishing village, why not combine a day at the beach with a purchase of some freshly caught fish for supper?
