Not a beautiful beach! Were told to go here because the water is calmer than in other places so would be good for swimming, but there are a lot of boats - a dive boat was parked right in front and was doing repairs or something, filling the air with diesel smoke - and a strong current. I actually would... More

And the food, best steak I have ever had. 25$ for either steak, fish or chicken, with rice and peas, macaroni pie,... More

Sunday lunch here is delicious, excellent choice of fish, steak, lamb and pork with coleslaw, rice, sweet potato and salad. It's best to get there early or reserve as tables are few and the expat community tends to meet up here for lunch and some ol time dancing. Great fun. Lovely beach. Lovely people.

...as it's affectionately known by the locals. Sunday lunch, as others have mentioned, is an opportunity for the seniors from the (mostly ex-pat) community to get together for a bite to eat and a bit of old time dancing to live music. It is tucked out of the way but on one of the most sheltered and widest beaches on... More

Spent my days here on the beach. Great spot, friendly people, Beautiful beach and sea. Crystal Waters Bar is the best, even though slow and disorganized. Richard, chair vendor has to pay out of pocket to have coconuts and dying palm fronds cut. Tourists are grooming the beach. Why isn't Beach Commission paying for this?? Palm fronds will cause great... More

This is the hidden gem of Barbados, off the beaten track and frequented by experienced vacationers and locals. It is only open from 11 to 8 daily, but if you want an inexpensive drink and the chance to experience the real Barbados this is a must. I recommend you try the ham cutter or Bajan fish cakes if you want... More

We had lunch here twice during our stay in Barbados. The food was cooked to order, fresh, tasty and delicious - we'll be back when we're back in Barbados!!! Staff really took to our 3 year old son and made a point of talking to him etc - this made our visits here so much easier! Thank you Crystal Waters!!

This is a beach front location along Barbados south coast. It's not fancy but it's a great place to purchase a barbecued lunch on Sunday. Choice of one meat plus other goodies (fish, steak, chicken). Always active and you are wise to reserve a table in advance. Live music, dancing on the cement patio. A happy place with both tourists... More
