Alleynes Bay

Alleyne's Bay

Alleynes Bay is situated on the West Coast of Barbados, in the parish of St. James, with Heron Bay, Folkestone Marine Park and Holetown to the south, and Reed's Bay, Gibbes Beach and Mullins Beach to the north. It is also situated in close proximity to Barbados' world class Royal Westmoreland Golf Course.


Alleynes Bay is a quieter, less 'touristy' Barbados beach and well worth a visit. Remember that all of the beaches in Barbados are public beaches, and several marked paths and tracks will take you to the beach at Alleynes Bay. The vast expanse of soft golden sand awaiting you is clean and sparsely visited, so you will be able to relax and sunbathe without the hustle of beach activity going on around you. The calm sparkling waters of the Caribbean Sea are always warm and perfect for swimming and snorkelling.


Alleynes Bay makes a wonderful setting for a picnicking day out with family or friends when you are in Barbados. However, there are no beach facilities or amenities at Alleynes Bay, and no retail outlets or vendors, so make sure you take what you need for the day with you. If you prefer to spend some time out of the sun you are close to the nearby areas of Holetown (to the south) and Speightstown (to the north), where you will find a number of shops, restaurants and snack bars, many serving Bajan dishes.
