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

Beautiful beach. Not recommended for casual sea bathing as it is rough and there is no lifeguard, however, it is sooooooo beautiful. A good spot for surfing.

This is one of my favorite places on the island to visit... The view is amazing. The rock formations are incredible. There is plenty of shaded places to sit and relax. There are tables and plenty of open area for gatherings or to lunch. I would never leave the island without stopping here and visiting... Don't miss out on this... More

A must visit while on the island. Take a camera and water shoes. A few nice little rum shack/eateries around the beach. Great for a family outing.

We were on an organised trip and approached Bathsheba Beach from higher ground - the views were stunning and it was a great photo opportunity. The closer views from above the beach were also amazing along both aspects of the beach - taking in the amazing rock formations and the huge waves ( a surfers paradise). It was wonderful and... More
