Another "beach day" but the weather was overcast and drizzly again this time. Can't control the weather, at least it was warm ...

Took a cab to the Hilton Hotel. About 10 minutes from the port. The beach was very nice but due to windy conditions the surf was up a little. We wound up using the pool. The tour also included lunch, which was very good. But we were a little disappointed with the rougher surf.

Nice beach break. Great water & soft sand. You're near the road so hawkers will come to sell their wares.

One of my favorite islands. We went off to a beach (Accra) for the day and enjoyed a lovely beach day. Wow I guess we sound boring reading this review but this was our 5th time to Barbados and we love the pink sand beaches- there are so many of them that we just wanted an full day of beach. It was one of the highlights of our trip. For $20 RT we had a great time and a great taxi driver by the name of BArry who was there to pick us up at the appointed time. There was a constant flow of taxis anyway if he had not showed up.

We wanted something inexpensive and this Barbados Beach Break fit the bill. Once arriving at the beach, we were given a choice of lounges/umbrellas and a free drink. There were servers who walked the beach asking if anyone wanted food or beverages. It was a nice time and a good value. A couple of cautions about Barbados – DON’T wear camouflage clothing or smoke in public. I’m not sure why, but the CD and other ship’s people gave that warning multiple times.

Excellent beach, facilities, 2 loungers and large parasol for $15 including 3 half price drink vouchers. 2nd visit wasn't so good as too many touts on beach. There was another cruise ship in loaded with Americans.

We got dropped off at Carlisle Bay. It was beautiful. We had loungers and a drink included. There was a beach bar with food available for purchase. We enjoyed the day very much.

We caught a taxi ($7 round trip per person) to spend a fabulous day at the 5 star Hilton resort. We were able to use everything...just as the regular guests...even wifi. All I can say is go to their website and you'll understand why it was such a treat. Finally a beach that you have always wanted to see in the Caribbean! The lunch, towels, plush beach chairs and umbrellas were all included. Snorkeling was impossible due to the waves. Was it worth $55? ABSOLUTELY!!!

Beautiful beach but a bit rocky. Plenty of services available at the beach for food, drinks and rentals. The sea was a bit rough the day we were there but it still was a relaxing experience. The port is a blend of colonial color and tourist development.

We'd booked a beach break through Celebrity originally to a particular beach (can't remember which one) - I'd looked at the beach online and thought it looked good. Pre sailing Celebrity emailed to say they were changing the excursion to a beach bar break - which could have been at any beach on the island. We therefore cancelled and booked a day at the Hilton Barbados (recommended by someone on the Cruise Critic board) through barbadosforaday.com. This was great. WE got a taxi independently (cost $7.50 each, though I think we could have got that cheaper). The taxis at the cruise port are all officially organised but expensive. I think if you step outside the cruise port you could get cheaper taxis. Other people had booked island tours by taxi for $30 each, so our fare definitely looked expensive. Facilities at the Hilton were lovely. Clean, good pool area with a restaurant/bar. The deal included a meal and drink (non/al) there - which was very good. The beach is right there - beautiful, white sand with snorkelling at the rocks. Loungers are free by the pool and on the beach. Would recommend.

This Beach break was to the Copacabana Beach. What a great beach. And the Copacabana staff were very friendly. Definitely worth the cost. We will do this again.

We used the ship's excursion here, to Copacabana Beach. I wouldn't repeat this one. We had 3 busloads of people and a very crowded beach.

The BoatYard is close to the cruise terminal. It had a $12 cover fee that included entry to the beach for the day, a drink, free cab back to the ship, chairs, umbrellas, water trampolines, dive platform and rope swing off the pier. The sand was white and the the water was crystal clear. The food was slightly costly but with all you get on the ship it isn't necessary. The I would definitely recommend this beach bar.

Shipyard was a place that you had to pay to get in but only thing we could do as it was Easter Sunday. Well worth it as the cabin crew were there so that speaks for itself. British Virgin Island was our favorite 5*

We took a quick and relaxing excursion to Cockspur Beach Club (formerly know as Malibu Beach Club)on the south west coast of the island. The price of the excursion was very reasonable and it included transportation, beach chair, umbrella, rum punch and entertainment (if you chose to participate.) The beach was clean and wonderful and the water was refreshing. There were vendors that would approach you while you were on the beach, but they weren't bothersome.

We love Barbados and the beaches are excellent. Sun loungers and shades easily available,beautiful sea to swim in and good water sports if you like them. We walked to the beach from the cruise ship it took about 20-25 mins and was an enjoyable walk. The taxi back was $10
