The nice part about staying at the Bridgetown Hilton in Barbados is that Needham's Point Beach is right outside your door.
There are three different areas of Needham's Point, consisting of Pebbles Beach, Drill Hall Beach and of course - Needham's Point Beach, which is right in the middle! This beautiful beach has a natural reef that creates a swimming area protected from the strong waves, so it's perfectly suited for sunbathers and swimmers.
While the Hilton Barbados Resort itself is a lovely property with an amazing staff, the main attraction is the location! Needham's Point Beach is one of the prettiest beaches in the area is located right outside its doors, and you'd be a fool not to book a room with an ocean view.
Want to go body surfing? Just grab your board and walk outside...
The sea is welcoming, the waters are warm and the sand feels like sugar between your toes.
Want to do a little exploring? Hilton Barbados Resort was built on the site of Fort Charles, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The walls of Fort Charles are preserved, and you can even see the canons up close!
If you're lucky, you'll catch a few crabs scuttling about on the rocks. Just be careful and don't get too close - they pinch!
Take a walk along the beach and you just might find the skeleton of a sea urchin washed up on shore...
There is a lifeguard stand on the beach, but still be wary of the current.
The waves are strong and consistent, which is what makes the area so popular for body surfing!

Barbados is, indeed, a paradise, not only for natural beauty. The Bajans are beautiful, friendly, and welcoming. Six years after my husband passed, his longtime friend (who had retired in Barbados) called to say he wanted to try to repay kindness that was given to him through the years. He didn't understand why my husband wasn't here to enjoy the island, but if I would come to visit, he would pay my fare. Eight marvelous days I spent, as he took me to the Atlantic side of the island, the horse races, restaurants, anthurium farms, beaches, and to visit friends. I loved the brightly colored houses, and sugar cane farms. Though he has since passed away, I would love to return to beautiful, friendly, unforgettable BARBADOS! ps. I was there the week that was the hottest on record for Barbados, not a fan to be found! Still wonderous.
