Our to 5 Barbados Anchorages are:

Paynes Bay

This is an absolutly breathtaking anchorage and beach. The sunsets here are amazing. Some of the best i've ever seen took place sitting on this beach. The bottom is sandy so the holding is good. It's on the east side of the island so you will have good protection from the wind. If all that doesn't sound great their is free wi-fi on the beach. Yes i'll say again free FAST wi-fi.

Paradise Beach

The name says it all.


Browns Beach

This is one of two good spots to anchor off of Browns beach. Their is also another anchoring spot to the north. Both are good enough for government work.


Hangmans Bay

This spot has alot of room to anchor. What I mean by this is that anchorable depths extend further off shore then any other spot arounf Barbados.


Haywoods Beach

It is possible to anchor here but like much of the eastern coast of Barbados their is only a narrow strip of anchorable bottom before depths increase dramaticly.


No matter which one of these anchorages you go to you are going to be in a great spot. Some have more services then others. By more services then others I mean that their might be an extra bar around.


Barbados in general is a pretty undelevloped country as far as cruising goes. Their is only one real marina and getting a haul out is virtually impossible. Since Barbados is about 110 miles due east off the coast of St. Lucia boaters rarely venture out here. The prevailing trade winds mean your looking at a 110 mile shlog into the wind. No one in their right mind wants to spend 12 hours doing that.


If your heart is set on visiting Barbados just hang out in Rodney bay untill you get a south or north wind. They do come, but their few and far in between. You will have a fast downwind ride back to St. Lucia though.
