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

Windswept, beautiful, and fascinating if you are a geologist. Worth an hour of your time. We visited as part of a day trip in a taxi.

Bathsheba Beach is a beautiful beach along the Atlantic shore. It is best known for its Awesome Rocks in the ocean. The water is sometimes very rough-great for surfing. This time it was very calm,however, with people paddle boarding. Nice area for picnicking with rest room facilities, restaurants and people selling their wares and souvenirs along the beach. I am...

Good view of Atlantic coast, wild waves and wind, picturesque places with big stones bitten by the ocean. Good for surfing. However, not suitable for swimming: rocks and seaweed.

Big rock out-crops, beach-side food and beer... we could spend all day sitting and listening to the ball size rocks roll up and down the beach with the waves.

The water is fairly rough but we saw lots of people picnicking here and kids playing soccer. Decent place to beach comb as well

Check this place out for the scenery. It caters well to tourists with various eating options, picnic spots and bars though it's not a great place to swimming and is in need of a bit of a clean up; Saw plenty of rubbish that had washed up on the shore. This beach is the go to place for surfers on... More

One of the most beautiful rugged coast lines with fantastic beaches. Giant boulders the size of houses strewn all over the beaches with sweeping views from the hills above. A must see excursion if you're travelling in Barbados.

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.
