South Coast

The beaches on the South Coast have the best beginner & intermediate surf in Barbados. For the more advanced surfer there are plenty of breaks in the area too and of course the East Coast's big spots are only 30 minute away. The island is so small that all Barbados surf breaks can be reached and explored quite easily .

Barbados is a year round surf destination, and from October to March the average temperature is 30 degrees both in and out of the water making it one of the best winter getaway options. South Point is arguably the most consistent surf break in the region with Surfers Point & Freights not far behind. All perfect for those learning how to surf and intermediates.

The South Coast has the largest selection of nightlife & dining options and is the main shopping areas. A great place to either party or just enjoy some fine Rum overlooking the beach. The South is made up of different small towns but they all blend into each other. Barbados is only 22km across so different beaches, restaurants and shops are all very easy to access.

A great beginners beach break and longboarders wave. Perfect for kids also.

Sand bottom left, not the most consistent but can produce some glorious long intermediate waves and photo perfect tropical barrels.

Silver Sands

Consistent fun right reefbreak that can get more interesting as the swell increases.

Brandons

Right and Left reef break , on the less consistent South West side!

Crane Beach

On the Eastern South side. Very consistent beach break that suits all standards.
