"This is our go-to location in Barbados. Nearby Brandon's Beach is great for the family as you can sit with the kids and watch the surf from the shade of the trees. We like to lounge on the sand, playing with Marlon and sipping on a rum punch, while taking it in turns to surf the mellow waves in clear blue water where turtles often pop their heads out to say hello." Angie Abell, Marine Biologist, surfer and mum of Marlon, aged 3.
