On the East Coast of Barbados lays the rugged surf of the Atlantic Ocean with its’ wide-ranging crashing of waves. The tranquillity feel of the East Coast allows you to marvel at Mother nature’s beauty. This stunning beach certainly is one of the prized gems of the East Coast. Here one can see the Atlantic Ocean in her uninterrupted splendour, amidst breathtaking backdrops of remarkable stone formations, beautiful lush landscape, and pristine waters.
Although we don’t suggest Bathsheba for a relaxing swimming due to its’ strong rip tide and undertow, the formation of quite a few natural pools makes it possible for sea lovers to still get wet. Additionally, it is known as a great location for picnics and photos - so be sure to walk with your camera!
If you are a surfer then this is the point for you. Surfers are known to frequent what is known as ‘Soup Bowl’ in Bathsheba, it hosts year-round surfing activities and has been ranked as one of the top 10 places in the world to surf by several international surfing pros.
Bathsheba is also of historical value to Barbados as it is the site of the old train line, which was operational in the 1800s. Another main feature of the area is the enormous coral formation that sits just offshore, commonly call Bathsheba Rock. We suggest you visit the area as Bathsheba certainly has no lack of activity and beauty.
