Discover Paynes Bay

Experience the laid back Caribbean vibe with a visit to Paynes Bay. Paynes Bay forms part of the ‘Platinum Coast’, located on the west of Barbados, and is a little village on the St. James Parish coast. It is lined with beautiful old trees and shares the white, powdery sand beaches and clear waters the island is known for. The water is warm and calm with no currents and is suitable to swim, kayak or snorkel.

Paynes Bay Macro 1

Paynes Bay is nestled amongst some of Barbados' hot spots but it’s a nice quiet area to hide from any bustle. It's central to most attractions such as Bridgetown, Holetown and also the Sandy Lane area. You can take a stroll and check out the luxurious hotels and villas owned by celebrities. Take to the sea and swim with turtles or relax on a catamaran cruise. Bask in the calm waters and enjoy snorkelling, kayaking and swimming. Check out the fisherman’s market where the daily catch is flying fish, mahi-mahi, tuna and more. Finish your day with a rum punch cocktail while watching the sunset in this tropical paradise.

With perfect sandy beaches and calm waters, Paynes Bay is an ideal tropical getaway for both couples and families of all ages. There are a selection of beachfront hotels and villas to cater to your needs.
