How to Reach

By Air

Many like the beaches in Oistins because they are on the flight path of many jets landing at the Grantley Adams International Airport.Sun bathers and those in the water can watch as every plane to Barbados swoops down from the sky on its final approach to a landing at the airport some 1-2 kilometres to the north and east.Some try to pass their time on the beach by guessing what will be the next airline approaching, before the plane's markings are visible once the aircraft passes directly overhead.

By Bus

Public buses that head northward to destinations such as Holetown and Speightstown, and OIstins to some locations in St. Michael including the University of the West Indies - (Cave Hill Campus), leave from the Princess Alice Bus Terminal which lies to the west of the city centre. Buses for points east and south leave from the Fairchild Street Bus Terminal, which is on the eastern edge of the city centre, near to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH).

By Taxi

Taxis are privately owned mini vans that are a cross between taxis and buses.They follow certain routes around the island.You can easily flag one of these down and for a low fare they'll take you pretty much anywhere.
