Nestled near the southern tip of Barbados is Freights Bay, a scenic spot that is a favourite of locals & visitors learning to surf.
As you arrive at Freights Bay you're greeted by a panoramic view of the turquoise waters with white-capped waves rolling in. On the cliff top are a few shaded benches and a beautifully landscaped lawn where you can watch the waves and surfers. This is also a wonderful spot for enjoying dramatic tropical sunsets. To the right is the fishing village of Oistins which is famous for its fish-fry especially on Friday and Saturday nights.
To access the water and small beach, head down the steps.
The conditions at Freights are perfect for beginners and intermediate surfers, with a sheltered bay, long left break, off-shore winds, and little current. Many local surf schools use Freights as a teaching spot. Peak surfing season here is between November and April.
Feeling a bit hungry? Head over to the Mr.Delicious food truck at Miami Beach (just around the corner) for their famous fish cakes, fish sandwiches, rum punch, beer, juices, and more. Miami Beach is also a great spot for sunbathing, swimming, and boogie boarding.
There are no beach facilities or lifeguard at Freights Bay.
