Guide to Gibbs Bay

Gibbs Bay beach is undoubtedly one of the best beaches on the beautiful island of Barbados. Connected to the equally exquisite Mullins Beach, it is possible to walk between the two beaches. Both Mullins Beach and Gibbs Beach have their location in the Parish of St Peter, on the north-western side of the island of Barbados.

The Platinum Coast

This area is often called the Platinum or Gold Coast of Barbados. One of the main reasons for this is that so many of the luxury Barbados Villas have their location here. It is not only one of the most beautiful stretches of beach, but Gibbs Bay is also one of the only wholly residential beaches on the island. There are no bars or restaurants, which adds to its exclusivity and peace.

What the beach is like

Of course, all beaches in Barbados are public up to the high-water mark, but Gibbs has very little public access, so anyone lucky enough to rent a villa in this location will feel like they are on a virtually private beach. It is one of the few beaches on the island of Barbados where you are guaranteed a quiet, noise-free time.

At the weekends, there is likely to be some small activity on the beach with a few local Bajan people enjoying the waters and some yachts bobbing in the spectacular bay!

The beach itself is a perfect crescent-shaped stretch of powder-white sands. The waters are almost always calm and crystal clear. The picturesque beach has plenty of beautiful casuarinas and swaying palm trees providing natural shade. The beach slopes gently down to the sea, making it easy to enter, and the sea floor is virtually stone and pebble free making it a real pleasurable experience for a leisurely dip.

Swimming and Snorkeling

It is an excellent spot for swimming and snorkeling as the waters are translucent. Because the waters are so calm, you never have to go far beneath the surface to see some wonderful sea life. Some of the beautiful colorful tropical fish you might expect to see while snorkeling on the beach is parrotfish, trumpet fish, rays, moray eels, angelfish, and blue tang. In addition, there are a host of beautiful corals, sponges, and turtles.

While Gibbs Beach is exquisitely peaceful and quiet, its neighboring Mullins Beach offers visitors a slightly more lively and local Barbados experience. It's possible to walk along the beach to Mullins and enjoy a variety of water sports such as water skiing, Hobie cats, wave running, jet skiing, and banana boat rides!

We highly recommend Gibbs Beach to clients who enjoy taking morning or evening strolls or jogs along the beach, and it is an ideal location for families with young children.


Restaurants


There are also a couple of great restaurants along Mullins Beach. One of the best is Sea Shed which offers excellent food and a fantastic spot for sunset cocktails. Sea Shed is located directly on the beach and consequently offers a beautiful view.

The restaurant can be bustling in high season and peak months, so please ask our complimentary concierge at Exceptional Villas to pre-book for you. Sea Shed has a lovely laid-back beach vibe.

The food is sourced directly from the seas around Barbados. Some of our favorite dishes include coconut-crusted fish, nachos, and tuna tartare.

Another lovely setting to enjoy a lunch, dinner, or sunset cocktail is the Royal Westmoreland Beach Bar. It is open daily from 11 and serves delicious food with a great view. The menu is varied with a good selection of local Caribbean delights such as chicken roti and international dishes like homemade risottos and fresh salads.

It is worth noting that neither of these two restaurants accept cash, so please bring your credit card.


The Indulgent Spa


The area has an excellent spa called The Indulgent Spa should you fancy some pampering. Managed by Royal Westmoreland, it has its location almost directly opposite the beach at Mullins Bay. They offer a whole range of facials, massages, and beauty treatments.

Many of the most impressive Villas in Barbados have their location along the shores of Gibbs Beach. A good number of them have exquisitely landscaped tropical gardens and swimming pools. At Exceptional Villas, we are delighted to represent 24 of the best Gibbs Bay Barbados Rentals.


GIBBS RENTALS


Some of our personal favorite Gibbs Beach Villas include;

GREENSLEEVES

Greensleeves is one of Barbados's most iconic villas. It re-opened in 2022 following a total refurbishment and transformation. The villa has one of the best locations on the island of Barbados. To the south is beautiful Reeds Bay, and to the north is Gibbs Bay.

This magnificent Barbados mansion sleeps up to 20 people in 10 luxurious bedrooms. The facilities resemble those of a small boutique hotel. There is a huge private tropical garden, a beautiful free-form swimming pool, floodlit tennis court, fully equipped gymnasium, games room, home cinema, and barbecue.

In addition, Greensleeves offers an entire staff team to cater to your every need. These include a butler, executive chef, sous chef, housekeepers, gardeners, and a 24-hour security team.

SANDALO

Sandalo is located directly on Gibbs Beach. It is a 5-bedroom coral stone villa built in a traditional Barbados style. It offers a stunning tropical garden, a huge swimming pool, and breathtaking views of Gibbs Bay and the ocean.

The décor is highly luxurious, and the villa provides the perfect environment to enjoy indoor/outdoor living at its best. The main reception rooms open directly onto the garden and pool area via three floor-to-ceiling French doors. The main bedroom is one of the villa's highlights, with direct access to a vast balcony and stunning sea views.

Sandalo also comes fully staffed with a team of professionals, including a butler, housekeeper, laundress, chef, Gardner, and night watchman.

WESTHAVEN

Another extremely popular villa on Gibbs Beach is Westhaven. It is a four-bedroom luxury villa with beautiful views of the calm Gibbs Bay waters. Surrounded by tropical gardens, Westhaven has one of the prime locations on the beach.

The décor is very relaxed yet luxurious, and expect to be pampered by the friendly team, which includes a gourmet chef and housekeeper. The chef prepares three meals daily, leaving nothing to do except relax. All our guests who have stayed at Westhaven over the years love the villa. They visit—yearly, which is an actual testimony to their professionalism.

All our villas on Gibbs Beach come with our 5-star award-winning complimentary concierge service. Rowena is our head of Barbados Concierge. She will organize all the details of your vacation, from VIP fast-tracking through the airport, restaurants, water sports, car rentals, and ground transportation.

Gibbs Beach is on the North West Coast of Barbados, on the boundary of the parishes of St. Peter and St. James, with Reeds Bay, Alleynes Bay, Colony Club (Heron Bay), and Holetown to the south, and Mullins Beach, Speightstown, Heywoods Beach and Port St. Charles to the north.
