If you are in the Carlisle Bay Area and looking for a fun and reasonably priced way to spend a day, visit Sharky's Bar at the Boatyard. For $50 BDS you get a $40 food and drink credit, beach chair with umbrella, use of multiple water activities for the kids (and adults) like a rope swing, jumping platform, trampoline and climbing toy. Additionally, included in the price, you can take a 45 minute boat excursion to snorkel over a wreck and swim with sea turtles (provided they're around). All of this on one of the most beautiful beaches, not just on Barbados, but in the world, with a kilometer of white sands and crystal clear waters. Take the whole family for a fun day in paradise.

Whether you want to swim with the turtles, take the rope swing into the sea, chat with the teens offshore or read a book on the beach with the occasional swim and cocktail you can do it here. Food was good, iced drinks were great and all reasonably priced. A perfect place for all the family to find what they want.

We loved our trip to the Boatyard, what great fun. Highlight was rum punch in the sea. The food and drinks were sound, not fancy but good value. The whole set up was overseen by a whiley old Mr Crabs like figure, he did a great job and tickled our funny bone.

Beach bar with sun loungers offered on a sort of all inclusive for the day package, though the drinks and food do run out. Carlisle Bay is a fabulous beach and this is a great spot to enjoy it. Free turtle watching boat trips are included and there is a jetty to swing off, plus changing rooms, music and showers. Very popular with cruise parties, just south of Bridgetown. good value.
