Mullins Beach

Mullins Beach is located on the West Coast of Barbados, in the parish of St. Peter, with Cobblers Cove, Godings Bay and Speightstown to the north, and Gibbes Bay, Reeds Bay and Alleynes Bay to the south.

 

Mullins Beach is not as big or as picturesque as many of the other beaches in Barbados but is nevertheless a popular West Coast beach that has earned a reputation as 'the place to be and be seen'. 

 

Mullins Beach's road side position makes it easily accessible, with a spacious new car park across the road from the beach. The south of Mullins Beach predominantly backs onto private villas, while low rocky cliffs dominate the northern end. An attractive, if narrow, strip of pale sand, Mullins Beach is perfect for ardent sunbathers. You can either rent beach chairs, loungers and umbrellas or get your shade from one of the numerous Casuarina trees lining the beach. 

 

The clear turquoise water is fairly calm and shallow at Mullins Beach, safe for children and for swimming and snorkelling in the roped off areas and, further out to sea, a popular choice with jet skiers. A number of other watersports are also available, or you can take a trip on one of the famous Barbados glass bottom boats to see and swim with the turtles.

 

One of the main attractions at Mullins Beach is perhaps Mullins Restaurant & Beach Bar, once called Mannie's Suga Suga. Find yourself a table in this modern 'beach house' with its attractive features and décor, and enjoy a variety of cold drinks, snacks and delicious meals under cover at lunch or dinner time. 

 

If you want to combine a trip to Mullins Beach with some shopping, why not visit some of the many shops in nearby Speightstown, and then come back to Mullins Beach to watch a Barbados sunset. Mullins Beach faces west, so this is a good place to sit with a drink and watch as the sun falls into the deep blue Caribbean Sea, creating a palette of magnificent hues on the twilight skyline.
