Drill Hall Beach
Drill Hall beach is one of the most diverse in Barbados. Here you'll find a variety of sea conditions with something for everyone!
Young children will enjoy wading in the calm waters and exploring the natural ocean pools which are teeming with marine life.
Older kids can join in the surfing lessons that take place nearly daily at the beach. The gentle waves make this the perfect surfing spot for beginners.
The open water (at the eastern end) is calm enough for swimming.
Wide shaded areas and picnic benches invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy another beautiful day in paradise. If you're feeling more energetic, head east and enjoy a stroll along the boardwalk or head west and explore Historic Bridgetown and its Garrison, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Drill Hall beach is a favourite nesting site for sea turtles. If you're lucky, you'll spot some emerging from the sand and making their way down to the sea.
The name of the beach is derived from the nearby military buildings where drills were held. These historic buildings are now the headquarters of the Barbados Defence Force.
