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

This is quite a trek and you can get lost quite easily if using the simple maps provided by the car hire companies. Once at the beach the views are stunning the only bad thing about the beach is you can't go for a swim as its all rocky and the waves are quite strong.

We have spent time in Bathsheba the last two Novembers and find it a very nice and picture postcard location, the locals are fun and always want to have a chat. The last two visits coincided with the Barbados world championship surfing competition and that proved very entertaining as a spectacle.

We parked along the road at the top of the cliff overlooking the soup bowl which is a pretty view and there were some people surfing. Then we made our way down the cliff toward the beach which was covered in seaweed. The most disappointing thing was the trash and broken glass on the beach. Our son would have enjoyed... More

Visited Bathsheba beach on the East coast at the start of April and it was covered in seaweed. IRS not a beach you can swim at anyway, as the tides are dangerous, but it is usually beautiful to walk along. The seaweed, where it has dried, looks like shades of spices, it doesn't smell too bad, but if you are... More

A wonderful beach with spectacular Atlantic rollers and unique rock formations. Not ideal for families and the lack of cafes and dining outlets a disadvantage.

Have visited Bathsheba a few times and love the rugged coastline which is a complete contrast to where we stay on the west coast. Very disappointed this year as the whole beach and rock pools are covered with seaweed which prevented a walk through the pools. I realise this is a nature problem but to preserve an area which is...

Wrong time of year I guess.....no part of the beach was visible entirely covered in seaweed but the rock formations were incredible and would have been stunning to photograph with the white topped waves crashing into them. The seaweed had been there for a while as it was different colours and there was a bad odor in some spots.

Completely different from the west coast, watch the atlantic ocean rush in on to a large sandy beach, with large rock outcrops, a superb wild beach. Caution though not for swimming here, although small rock pools form and these are safe to bath or paddle in.

Love this place, the sands are quite different, the rocks near the beach are very beautiful. But, isn't a good place to eat!

Unspoilt beach, but strong currents. Excellent for surfers and walkers. Good local cafes. Very uncrowded
