As the beach at Bathways is protected by a limestone reef, the sea is much safer to enter than at Levera. However, it is still quite restricted. Alot of local people go to Bathways, but mainly sit in the water and chat - it's not really for proper swimming. The seas on the the Atlantic side of the island are rougher than the Caribbean side, although we were told that seas in December are particularly rough, so it might be better at other times of the year. Also, do go to Aggie's if you get the chance - it overlooks the beach. Aggie is a real character and cooks great local food. The fried lambie was much better than I had eaten in an expensive hotel in the South
