West Coast Beaches - Colony Club Beach

Numerous water sports activities, including jet skiing, parasailing, kayaking, and catamaran sailing are available from the beach and special areas are roped off to ensure your safety and comfort while swimming. Towards the northern end of the beach are shallow reefs where snorkelers can spot colorful tropical fish and other marine life. You may even come across a nest of a hawksbill or leatherback turtle! Heron Bay, a magnificent coral stone house sitting on the beachfront, has hosted many famous guests, including former US President Bill Clinton, former British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, and several movie stars. The house was built in 1947 by the late Ronald Tree, a member of the Winston Churchill British Cabinet. The house is set on 20 acres of manicured gardens, including a small lake, and the property is often opened as part of the Barbados National Trust's annual Open House Programme.
