Long Beach

Long Bay is situated on the South East Coast of Barbados, in the parish of Christ Church, with Grantley Adams International Airport a few miles further north. This proximity to the airport makes Long Beach in Barbados the last beach at this part of the island, and an additional lack of signposts and notoriety mean it is rarely visited by tourists.


Located at one of the most south-easterly points of the island, the isolated Long Beach in Barbados is nonetheless worth seeking and finding if you can. The cliff above the beach offers an excellent vantage point from which to view the wonderful surrounding scenery, and there are benches provided. There are a number of steps that lead down to the beach so you will need to be reasonably able bodied to get to the sand.


Surrounded by jagged cliffs and edged with swaying palms, the panoramic white powdery beach at Long Beach is Barbados's longest beach, offering tourists and Bajans stunning scenery, a peaceful, relaxing area for a picnic, and clear shimmering turquoise waters. It is a perfect location for a romantic walk at sunset, and an unbeatable backdrop for a tropical dream wedding. If you want to swim, the sea at Long Beach can be very rough, with large powerful waves and unpredictable currents and undertow. Strong swimmers should be fine, but it is sensible to visit this beach in a group for safety, especially as there is no lifeguard on duty. The strong cooling breezes at Long Beach in Barbados also provide the ideal conditions for surfing and kite surfing, but again caution is advised.


For the less active visitor who perhaps enjoys beachcombing, the beach yields many interesting treasures - pebbles, shells, bits of coral.


The popular private hotel once located here, the Long Beach Club and Resort, has now closed and been demolished, so those discovering Long Beach in Barbados will find there are no amenities or retail outlets at this delightful tranquil beach. However, Long Beach is close to the lively area of St. Lawrence Gap where you can find everything you need before spending your day at the beach.
