At the southern end of Carlisle Bay, right on the south-west tip of Barbados, is the historic Needham's Point area.
With calm crystal clear waters Needham's Point is a favourite sea bathing spot for locals and visitors alike.
There are almost 3 distinct beaches surrounding the point - the northernmost is referred to by locals as Pebbles Beach. To the south is the area known as Drill Hall beach.
Sandwiched right in the middle is perhaps the loveliest beach of all - Needham's Point itself. The extremely calm waters lap onto the white beach and a reef almost makes a natural swimming pool out of the ocean. This is also a favourite spot for sea turtles and you're quite likely to spot some when you're out swimming or kayaking in the area.
