Most people arrive at a Mullins Bay villa with the express desire to spend a week lazing on the beach, far from the worries of everyday life back home, and that is one thing that Mullins Bay thrives at. The beach which lines the bay is easily accessible and unlike most Barbadian beaches, Mullins Bay beach almost always draws a small crowd, but fear not, there is always a huge amount of space on which to find a private spot. The Mullins Beach Bar is a wonderful place to relax with a chilled cocktail, meet new people and party when the sun eventually goes down.
The warm waters of the Caribbean are so clear that you almost have to try snorkelling or scuba diving from the beach. Due to the lights from the Mullins Bay Bar, you can even try snorkelling at night, when a whole range of nocturnal fish flee the safely of the coral reefs and feed. There are a huge variety of water sports available from the beach, including windsurfing and sailing, all of which can be organised with great ease from a Mullins Bay holiday rental. There are also boat trips which leave from the beach, the most exhilarating of which offer you the chance to swim with turtles.
