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

Great beach to stop by if you are on the east coast. It is not a swimming beach, but the views are stunning. There is a grassy area perfect for picnics/ laying around taking the scenery in. It really is not the place for much activity but 100% worth it if you're in the area. Definitely a favourite.

There isn't anything to dislike here! The views were just out of this world. Did this as part of a trip and if our driver hadn't found us we would have just stayed sitting on the beach!

Amazing scenery, long, pristine beaches and roaring waves. Great if you like to take impressive photos but no swimming! Highly recommended anyway.

This is a beautiful stop along a tour, but I can't see stopping there for very long. It's not water you can really (or safely) swim in, it's a somewhat rocky beach, and there's not much to do beyond look at the water/scenery and snap some pics. A nice, quick stop. Don't make this your day excursion, though, because you'll... More

We went here after my insect encounter so I was not able to get the most out of it. There are bathroom facilities but not for the weak of heart, you need strong thighs. Beautiful coastline.

Beautiful and wild part of Barbados on the east coast. Much quieter, greener, hillier and windier than the Caribbean side on the West coast. Really nice for a day visit and walking - not really a beach resort. Couple of nice bars from which to admire the view. Plenty of buses to and from Bridgetown.

I wish I could've swim there ...but we were on a tour and didn't have enough time. Very beautiful place though.

Bathsheba Beach is absolutely epic! One of the most beautiful places I've ever had the privilege of going to! Almost constant trade winds blow to keep you cooled down, and the temperature mild. Beautiful coral reef teeming with life, as well as some of the friendliest locals I have ever met! Grab a beer or a bottle of rum at... More

This is a beautiful spot but a little tricky to find. Maps are not the best and the signage is problematic but it is worth finding. The rock formations are very beautiful and formed naturally by the sea. So tides, storms and wave action must be very strong. There are large tidal pools that people explore and sit in, like...
