Mullins Beach in St Peter is fast becoming a popular spot for relaxation.
And today, on a sunny day in the heart of the Easter holiday break for schoolchildren, it was the perfect day to indulge in a day of sun, sea and sand.
And from what a Barbados TODAY team witnessed when they visited the area, folks were definitely enjoying it.
But it was more than just sea bathing. Children participated in a wide range of water sports, including waterskiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding and Banana Boat rides, among others. Some also jumped up and down on an inflatable trampoline in the water.
Brian Gibbons, owner of Malibu Water Sports, said while today was busy, it was even busier yesterday. He said the beach had become very popular among locals and tourists.
“Mullins Beach is the place to be and right now things are booming in a certain way. Some days it’s busy and some days it’s not, but weekends are always good,” said the businessman.
“Chairs must also sell because people want somewhere to sit; so chair rentals are pretty good as well,” he added
At the beach with their two children was Gibbons’ wife Carol, who said she decided to bring the children outdoors so they could make the most of the holidays and just enjoy the weather, relax and chill out.
“The kids get to run around, go in the water and cool off and just have some fun with the friends. It’s about getting out of the house and getting to wet their feet and that’s always great,” she said.
