This beach offers spectacular views of the island, but watch out if you want to go swimming - strong undercurrents can make swimming here dangerous.

Located on the east side of Barbados, Bathsheba Beach has good waves but not too much sand. Still a beautiful place to visit and watch the waves roll in. Sometimes there are surfers for entertainment too.

Bathsheba is much different than the East and South coasts in that it doesn't really have sandy white beaches. However, if the surf is up, there is free entertainment because the surfers will be out. Bring a towel or chair or blanket to set down on the grass or the seaweed covered beach. Also, if possible, take a surf lesson... More

A wonderful beach with spectacular views along the Atlantic shore. Lots of rocks and reef make going in the water only for the very experienced and this beach hosts the more exciting surf contests when the season is right. Did not have time to actually enjoy the beach because we were on an island tour.

It was a pity that this beautiful place was ruined because there was seaweed and rubbish on the beach. The restaurant provided us with a lovely meal.

The water here is a bit rough- great for surfing! The sand was covered with seaweed and STILL beautiful! The rock formations here are truly beautiful and worth a climb (or at least a photo op!) a very quiet area with a local restaurant the "Round House" nearby, Didn't visit this trip but have in the past and really enjoyed...

On the day in question we had hired a car to visit the wildlife park (brilliant). Afterwards we decided to see Bathsheba beach. If anything, it provides proof that the west coast is the place to be. Yes, the scenary is quite spectacular and the rock formations are amazing. But the beach was a mass of seaweed and rubbish. If... More

We were looking forward to visit this beach, a popular stop for most tourists. The view was amazing and I am happy I've seen it. Did not have time to actually enjoy the beach because we were on an island tour.

We reached the place while taking a "Coast to Coast" tour from Bridgetown, after visiting another observation point at one of Barbados' highest points. We were told that this beach hosts the more exciting surf contests when the season is right. What we saw was a quite special beach especially unique because of the huge and special rock formations, formed... More
