At the quiet eastern end of St. Lawrence Gap a sandy track leads to this lovely stretch of beach known as Turtle Beach.
Although the aquamarine waters here are not as calm as some other Barbados beaches it is still perfectly safe for swimming. The waves create good boogie boarding conditions while further out to sea the windsurfers take advantage of the strong breezes. Jetskiing, kayaking, and stand up paddle boarding are also favourite activities at Turtle beach.
It's a lovely spot for a quiet morning beach walk. Later in the day the expansive white-sand beach is dotted with sunbathers and families who stay at the several hotels, resorts and guesthouses on and near the beach.
As the name implies, the beach is also a favourite nesting spot for turtles, so if you're lucky you may see a nesting turtle or baby hatchlings during your visit!
Hatchings usually take place in the late evening or at night and most hotels in Barbados are considerate enough to adjust their lights so as not to confuse the baby turtles who are often drawn to the lights.Hatchings usually take place in the late evening or at night and most hotels in Barbados are considerate enough to adjust their lights so as not to confuse the baby turtles who are often drawn to the lights.
