Mullins Beach Barbados

Mullins Beach Barbados is one of Barbados’ white sand beaches located on the island's West Coast.  This coast is known for its calm water and beach family fun, and Mullins Beach is no exception.

But it’s not just the white sand beach that pulls in the visitors.  It is the beach bar, a favorite hangout spot for locals and visitors alike.  Every Sunday you will find cars tightly packed close to the sidewalk as visitors, with beach towels in hand, make their way down to this beautiful beach.  Barbadians (or Bajans) like the atmosphere at the beach bar.

This beach is also a hit with families traveling with kids.  The turquoise water is calm and is perfect for a myriad of water sports activities for loads of beach family fun the entire family can enjoy like glass bottom boat tours, and inflatables like the iceberg and trampoline. 


Features:  White sand beach with calm water


Amenities: Water sports and activities available – water skiing, knee boarding, windsurfing, tube rides, hobie cats, glass bottom boats tours, turtle trips | chair and umbrella rentals, beach bar & restaurant, limited on-street parking


Mullins Beach Barbados is located on Highway 1B in the parish of St. Peter on the island’s West Coast. This highway provides easy access to many of the white sand beaches of Barbados’ West Coast like Gibbes Beach (Gibbes Bay), Fitts Village Beach, Holetown Beach, and Paynes Bay Beach,  just to name a few.

The beach is just a few minutes away from the old fishing village of Speightstown (pronounced Spites Town). Ports Ferdinand and St. Charles - two marinas with luxury private residences - lie about 7 minutes farther north.  

Bridgetown, the capital, is approximately 28 minutes away and the island’s airport is about 40 minutes away. There are several cross-island access points that will take you to East Coast or Atlantic side of the island.  The East Coast of Barbados is known for its natural rugged beauty and is good for surfing. Swimming is not recommended but small wading pools make it possible to take a dip in the ocean. 

Directions to Mullins Beach Barbados

By Public Transportation

The one nice thing about the West Coast beaches is that there are all so easy to reach by public transportation or by car.

If you opt for public transportation, getting to and from the beaches is quite easy.  All public buses frequently travel on the West Coast road on a daily basis.  

Buses leaving from lower Broad Street in Bridgetown will travel along the West Coast road.  Just give your driver the name of the beach and he’ll make the stop.

By Car

From the capital Bridgetown - travel north along the Princess Alice Highway past Pelican Village (the arts and crafts village).  Bear right past the traffic lights until you reach the first rotary at the Bridgetown Port.  Follow the rotary and make a left at the intersection onto Spring Garden Highway.  Turn left at the second rotary onto the main West Coast road.  Mullins is about five miles away. 

From the South Coast – head east to access the Errol Barrow Highway.  Follow to Highway 2A and exit left at the Lawrence Johnson rotary.  Travel west for half mile to Highway 1.

Busy Sunday afternoon at Mullins Beach Bar

Mullins Beach Barbados is on my top 15 Barbados beaches list and I think it is pretty clear why it has made this list.  That white sand and turquoise water, the beach activities (if you feel the need), and a beach bar that always seems to hum with activity make this beach very desirable.
