West Coast Beaches - Sandy Lane Bay

This magnificent beach is situated on the west coast of Barbados, just south of the Holetown area. The Caribbean waters here are very calm, making this a great spot for swimming. Jet skis and catamarans pass by, along with the occasional local fishing boat. Widely known as the "Sandy Lane" beach, this stretch takes its name from the luxurious Sandy Lane Hotel which is nestled in the mahogany trees, directly off this beach. First opened in 1961, this magnificent hotel has gained a reputation as one of the finest resorts in the Caribbean, and has welcomed royalty, celebrities, and the business elite. Most recently the resort made headlines as the venue for the wedding of golf legend Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren.
