Coconut Court beach is quite large and is safe for swimming in Barbados, there is a shallow reef not too far out, so the water is quite calm. Beach goers can enjoy a beautiful expanse of white, sandy beach and plenty of natural shade from the many palm trees.

As with all hotels in Barbados, check with reception before using the facilities as at busy times they may limit the use of these to residents only.

From Bridgetown head along the south coast road towards Oistins, you will see Coconut Court Hotel on your right; the public beach access is just after the end of the hotel.
However, public parking is before you reach the hotel. As you come from Bridgetown, you will pass the Garrison Savannah on your left, home to Barbados’ horse racing.
Shortly after on your right you will see an open parking lot on a slope that leads down to the ocean. You may park in here and walk approximately two minutes down the road to the Coconut Court public access.
Please note that Coconut Court Beach Hotel does not rent sun loungers or body boards. Non- residents can usually use the hotel sun loungers free of charge. The Coconut Court Beach bar is open until sunset daily serving ice cold beer, frozen cocktails, light lunch and ice cream.
