A beautiful beach on the East coast of Barbados. Loved by visitors and locals alike. The rock formations were stunning and the rollers from the Atlantic spectacular.

Pass this beach while site seeing it was lovely. Lots of rock but looks so blue, reminds me about Rodney's Bay in St. Lucia.

It was one of those rainy mornings that you can get in August in the Caribbean and so we ventured from the west cost to the east to look around. The scenery is very different here with the massive boulders lining the beach but it is not safe to swim unless very experienced. Also worth viewing the sandstone cliffs of... More

We went by the local buses to Bathsheba. We really liked it. It was very different from the West Coast-rugged but beautiful. We stayed for one hour until the next bus back so relaxed at the little cafe/bar. Rough waters so probably not good to swim in sea so nothing else really to do but worth a visit to get... More

Bathsheba Beach is a place of natural beauty, The natural rock formations are amazing, the only downfall is if you catch it on a cruise ship day it will be VERY crowded. Still very much worth the trip, especially if it is part of an island tour!

Tons of photo ops at this beach. The location is beautiful and the rock formations are really pretty. The water is a bit rough, so it's more for surfing rather than swimming. It's definitely worth a stop, if you are driving by the east side of the island.

Beautiful views with incredible rock formations. Not for swimming. The day we went there were some surfers in the water. They were fun to watch. Not too much around except for a man selling trinkets.

There's no doubt that Bathsheba beach is stunning and worth stopping by if you are driving up the east coast. Would I make a detour for the day? Well, no, as a good beach for me means one where I am going to feel safe swimming and all the "hear be undertow dragons" warnings tell me that I would try... More
