This iconic east coast beach sits adjacent to the small fishing village of Bathsheba. The sand is wide and welcoming, and although the water isn’t considered safe for swimming, it is popular with surfers. Along the beach are natural pools carved out of the inshore coral which are great for soaking in as the water swirls around like a giant whirlpool bath. The waves are spectacular as they roll in off the Atlantic and smash against the reef. This is rugged Barbados at its best.
