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

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.

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

This part of the wild Atlantic Coast is stunning and beautiful. Normally it is also peaceful and quiet, it is then at it's best and you can wander along a stretch and find it idyllic. If you arrive in the late morning however, you will arrive at the same time as several buses and many taxis all doing a round... More

What a lovely beach! Waves coming in and hitting the rocks, mist forming above them, and the sound of it all. So pretty and relaxing. Palm trees were blowing in the wind as we looked around. The only thing missing were the hammocks! I could have stayed all day and enjoyed it. This beach is not for swimming and warnings... More

We went on a day-long excursion where we hired Big Apple to take my husband and I around the island. This was one of the stops that we had and I found the views to be breathtaking. It's a great place to get postcard views of the water framed by several palm trees. It's going to make a great Christmas... More

The rock formations were really beautiful. The smell of the ocean and the breaking waves were very relaxing. We were on a excursion so we didn't get to stay long, but it really was beautiful.

A great place for walking and dipping into rock pools. Ig you like log lonely walks, I recommend you pass the Atlantis hotel car park and continue along the path on the top of the cliff. I walked for two hours from there without meeting a soul.

Bathsheba Beach is definitely worth the trip. Breathtaking views of such a unique beach. Very peaceful to walk along the coast. Disregard those who have complained about the sea weed along the shore. The beach is a natural beauty. Best to go when there are no cruise ships in port. But, if you do go when the ships are in,... More

Loved to watch the huge breakers coming in and the noise of the Atlantic, also sitting watching the crabs scurry around. Not many surfers when we were there as the sea really was too rough and it is always a non swimming beach as very dangerous.

This is a naturally beautiful coast line, unspoilt by commercialism. It would probably be too rough for swimming, but is beautiful to sit and view
