This beach is one of the largest beaches in Barbados and boasts a prime location, just at the edge of Bridgetown. There are a few quiet spots, quite a few beach chairs & umbrellas, lifeguard huts, a few dive shops, less tree cover than other beaches in the area and two piers (the Boatyard pier and the Radisson Pier). Not to mention horses are often taken to this beach for a swim and the trainers are normally quite open to people taking photos. One of the stand-out features of this location is the multitude of boats and ships moored in the bay, they can act as a great backdrop.
I sometimes recommend this beach for clients who are interested in a bit of variety, who would like to shoot in the town area but are also looking for a beachy vibe.

These videos were taken on a particularly rainy day - they will be updated once I get the chance to film on a bright sunny day.
