Stunning little cove
Sep 2020 • Family
We went to Shark hole today at low tide - stunning little cove. Swimming possible - but only near the shore.

Beautiful
Jul 2020 • Family
We stopped a few times at shark hole as it’s so beautiful. The first time it was very rough and too rough to enter the water. The next time it was so calm and it was perfect to swim.

There were a few locals but apart from that it was deserted!

Hard to find but good views
Feb 2020
Unless you have this tiny inlet marked on a map or have viewed on Google Maps you are unlikely to find it. Probably not worth a detour but if you are driving around the south east coast and in the vicinity of Sam Lords Castle (closed) and Crane Beach this is a quirky place to stop for a view. Take a turn off Belair road and drive down the small estate roads (some swanky villas here) until you find a road which leads to a small rough parking area overlooking some rugged scenery - a short walk to the right allows you to view the tiny beach and inlet from the seaward side. You will then see where the fenced footpath runs behind it between two villas - this path is unsigned from the road.

Skip it.

This was not worth the stop. Go to nearby Cranes or Harrismith Beach. Not sure what the appeal is. Maybe I didn't go at low enough tide but it was just a beach and not a good one.

Beautiful swim spot but not so secret

Absolutely stunning little cove for a swim. Not so choppy either. Slightly hard to access. Nice and hidden bay.

Tiny opening to the sea
Nov 2019 • Couples
A tiny opening in between the cliffs, wow view! A great place for beautiful photos! Swimming here can be challenging because of the high wave and very tiny shore. Visit here early in the morning to have beautiful photos when no one is around. This place can be felt crowded with only 4/5 people as this is a very small beach.

Unique beauty spot but take care in the sea
Nov 2019
Shark's Hole is an unique little beach hidden on the south east coast of Barbados. My wife & I know Shark's Hole well, having swam here for over 17 years. The key to enjoying the water here is to stick to only going in to swim at low tide when its calm. At other times & especially when its windy, there can be a very strong undercurrent which can drag you from left to right as you look out to sea. The right hand side is open to the deep, rough ocean. The bottom line is take note of the tides (look up the tide times for each day), use common sense & you'll have a lovely time. One final thing. Some reviewers on here have mentioned a 'small car park' at the end of the dead-end cliff road. This area is actually a turning circle & needs to be kept clear for emergency vehicle use.

Beautiful spot
Aug 2019 • Couples
To get away from the heat on the West coast we drove to the south east corner of the island and found the Shark hole. Fresh breeze and beautiful scenery. There’s lots of sargassum on the day so the beach didn’t look inviting enough for a swim. Instead we walked around and took in the views.
Surprisingly it was not too difficult to find using google maps. And there’s even a tiny car park nearby.

Little gem
Apr 2019 • Family
We spent a couple of hours on this little beach in mid April, there were a few local families there at the time too. It’s not easy to find as there are no signs. You can swim as there is a natural breakwater which provides protection from the mighty Atlantic on the east coast.

A hidden gem of a beach which is not in anyway spoilt by commercialism.

Nice very small beach
Sep 2018 • Family
I am glad we came here but it would have been crowded if another family had been there at the same time. It was a nice sandy cove, no seaweed , and a nice sheltered spot. Not easy to find without GPS I would think
