Prospect Beach

more Barbados things to do

A secret gem, Prospect beach is tucked away in a small cove between Batts Rock beach to the south and Fitts Village beach to the north.

Start your visit with a relaxing swim in the calm, warm waters. Then grab your mask and snorkel to explore the small reefs, home to schools of tropical fish, at the northern end of the beach.

Occasionally a sea turtle can be spotted here, as the beaches along this coast are a favourite nesting spot for the endangered Hawksbill turtle.

The calm waters off Prospect beach are perfect for stand up paddle boarding and kayaking. It is also a wonderful spot for seeing breathtaking sunsets.

Although the beach is small, it is rarely crowded although during the peak visitor season (mid December to mid April) there are several guests from the beachfront hotel.

Where To Stay

As you relax on the sandy shore or splash in the sea, you'll likely see some catamarans heading up the coast on their way to feed the sea turtles. You might also spot the Jolly Roger pirate ship with its calypso music filling the air!

Prospect beach is most easily accessed by parking at the Good Shepherd church in Fitts Village and strolling south along the beach.
