Located in the extreme south west of the Caribbean, Barbados is exposed to the SE trades. Blowing from the east, with typical wind speeds of 20 knots and very little variation throughout the season it's not difficult to see why Barbados is a popular destination for Windsurfers worldwide.

The trade wind season extends from October to July with some of the best winds in June.

Located in the Worthing area in Christ Church, Sandy Beach is calm and clear with safe shallow waters. It is an ideal location for picnics especially with young children.
If you visit at low tide, the tide may be out and you can explore the reef for creatures that live and hide there.
Be warned, wear swimming shoes, the reef can be sharp and sea urchins can be very prickly! If you visit at high tide it's great for snorkelling.
There is easy access to this beach and parking is available at a nearby parking lot or on the beach itself. Food and drinks are readily accessible at terrace beach bars. Jet-skis and windsurfing facilities are sometimes available, as well as chair and umbrella rentals.
And day or night why not enjoy great food at this funkie little restaurant... a wonderful place while away a few hours with friends and a cold beer!!
Sandy Beach is indeed a picturesque lagoon and well worth a visit.
Especially at sunset... enjoy!!
