What’s the best beach in Barbados? That’s a question to start an argument, and there’s no shortage of candidates along the island’s sixty miles of coast. But locals will tell you there’s something special about Bottom Bay, near Barbados’s easternmost tip. Coral limestone cliffs rise above a wide swath of perfect sand, coconut trees rustle and twist in the Atlantic breeze, and the sea is an endless palette of blues stretching out to the horizon. For early risers, there may be no better place to welcome a new day, as rosy dawn eases into clear cerulean morning, and the rhythm of breaking waves calms your mind and spirit.
