Beach Bum Day
Beach Bum Day
The picture-perfect Carlisle Bay is a small natural harbor located in the southwest region of Barbados. The island nation's capital, Bridgetown, is situated on this bay and has been turned into a marine park, a popular spot on the island for snorkeling.
Carlisle Bay was once full of merchant vessels, particularly those of the British. Today, however, you will find beautiful catamarans and luxury yachts anchored here. Named after the Earl of Carlisle, James Hay, who was Lord Proprietor of Barbados in the 1600's, the bay lies in the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are 6 shipwrecks in the bay, which attract an abundance of marine life such as tropical fish, sea horses, rays, octopus, turtles and eels. Wrecks range in depth from 12ft to 55ft.
The calm, sparkling waters in Carlisle Bay and the Pirate’s Cove creates the ultimate location for you to truly enjoy any beach activity that motivates your interests from snorkeling to swimming. Or, simply sit back and lounge about soaking up the warm Caribbean sun and working on that perfect vacation tan. Feel your stress melt away minute by minute at this fantastic location as you experience the powdered sand on the coral limestone influenced shores and allow the warm, azure water to lap around you.
You will be provided with a beach lounger and shared umbrella for two. At the location you will find showers, changing facilities, bathrooms and free Wi-Fi.
Please Note: All water activities are at your own expense and of your own choice.

The beach was gorgeous. White sand and warm water. Very clean. We were provided with lounge chairs and an umbrella. Transportation was great. Got back to the ship with plenty of time to shop at the pier.
