Relax at Smith's Barcadere. Slightly off the beaten path, uncrowded, and with plenty of shade, the cove's calm blue waters framed by rocks offer the perfect spot for a swim. Remember to bring along your snorkeling gear, as there is also plenty to see underneath the surface. An abundance of trees near the coast offer refuge from the sun, so set up your picnic gear under the shade. Amenities include a shower and bathroom with fresh water, but you won't find any food vendors near the cove. For travelers who use our international travel planner, George Town holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Smith's Barcadere and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Beautiful location, natural rock formations with 2 main small sand entrances to the water (best I can describe). Some trees for shade. I liked that there were families, picnic tables, some bbqing going on. Good vibes! Good memories! Sweet Sunset...photogenic!
This is a unique beach. It has change room and bathrooms, outside rinse showers and picnic tables. There's no break water so the waves can be high. Recommend water shoes even though the beach is sand, there are pieces of coral and rock in places. The surrounding shore is volcanic or exposed coral with small pools with tiny fish and sea urchins.
