This is a beautiful beach, with a gorgeous sea. It is free, but the locals will be pushing you to hire chairs, beach umbrellas and so on. Wonderful huge conch shells straight from the sea - brilliant presents, if you luggage weight allowance can cope!

If you want the beach to yourself come here! The beach was pristine and calm and the water was clear and turquoise. There was only one other family there, swimming, fishing, and paddle boarding.

Wonderful beach for a long walk, very quiet. A little out of the way but worth the drive just to unwind.

Barbary Beach is a wonderful destination, save for the litter that is often on the beach. It both washes up from boats out at sea and is dropped by locals who just don't care. Whenever we go, I spend 30 minutes picking up trash, just...More

Barbary beach is so non-commercialized it isn't even "signed"...when driving, you don't even realize you have reached it! No facilities, path & road type parking but as raved about by those that enjoy remote, unspoiled and beautiful beaches, then this is the place for you!...More

Miles long stretch of sugar white sand, shallow water and privacy. No resorts or hotels, just unspoiled solitude! Great place for a picnic and beach bumming!

Barbary Beach might be far from busy Lucaya but too close to the Lucaya State Park, whichever the reason, it has few people visits and remains its originality. Different from other beaches that you cannot walk the beach on high tide, you can always trust...More
